Global Automotive Turbocharger Bearings Market 2017-2021

About Automotive Turbocharger Bearings

Automotive turbocharger bearings are mainly used for ensuring effective and frictionless functioning of the turbocharger. They are basically a set of smooth hardened circular balls or tapered rollers supplied by oil and held within a hard metal ring able to withstand heavy loads and facilitate frictionless rotation of the shaft. The automotive turbocharger bearings market is segmented into passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, and medium and heavy commercial vehicles.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global automotive turbocharger bearings market to grow at a CAGR of 10.15% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Turbocharger Bearings Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive turbocharger bearings market: NSK, NTN Bearing, and Schaeffler.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: JTEKT, THE TIMKEN COMPANY, SKF, ZOLLERN GmbH & Co., Honeywell International, and BorgWarner.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is antifriction automotive turbocharger bearings. Friction is one of the major reasons for causing wear in between turbocharger bearings. Ball bearings always undergo slight amount of friction due to certain amount of elastic deformation. Elastic deformation is caused when the turbocharger bearings are subject to higher amounts of load.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing sales of SUV and crossover models of passenger cars. SUV and crossover models of passenger cars have mid-sized and full-sized engines that have a higher penetration of turbocharged engines to increase output and control emissions. Therefore, the increase in the sales of SUV and crossover models of passenger cars will positively influence the demand for turbocharger bearings. Hydrodynamic turbochargers are mainly preferred in SUVs and crossovers as these offer effective control over the shaft under all types of running conditions and allow the engine oil to lubricate the parts.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is increased wage rates in China to increase prices of automotive turbocharger bearings. Lowered cost of manufacturing increases profits of manufacturers as they are able to get more margin on a certain product. Hence, manufacturers of commodity items choose locations for setting up manufacturing units based on the wage rates paid in the local labor market. Increased wages would cause companies to restrict production of units and ultimately affect their profits. China was considered to have the perfect balance between adequate amount of technical advancement and cheap labor.
