Global Ball Bearings Market 2017-2021

About Ball Bearings

Bearings are elements used for reducing energy loss caused by friction in moving parts of machinery. Depending upon the requirement and capability, some of the types of bearings used in machines to overcome this issue include ball bearings, plain bearings, and roller bearings. The growing need for efficiency and improving design of bearings have improved bearing designs. It has been observed that the growth of the ball bearings market is closely linked with the growth and performance of end-user industries and their deployment of machines and equipment. The growth in the manufacturing sector, construction activities, high energy demand, economic growth in developing countries, rising disposable income of consumers, and increasing standard of living are a few factors that will lead to rapid investments in end-user industries and subsequently increase the demand for ball bearings during the forecast period.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global ball bearings market to grow at a CAGR of 4.58% during the period 2017-2021.
