Global Elastomeric Couplings Market 2017-2021

Global Elastomeric Couplings Market 2017-2021

About Elastomeric Couplings

Elastomeric couplings are a form of flexible coupling employing an elastic material for transmission of torque. The couplings work without lubrication, thus requiring minimal maintenance services. Coupling systems are used to transfer power between two shafts, in which one shaft is powered by an engine or motor, and the other is unpowered. They act as a medium to transmit power from the powered shaft to the non-powered shaft and connect the two discrete systems. The coupling systems are also helpful when multiple shafts are connected for transmitting power over long distances. They eliminate the chances of shafts getting misaligned and ensure smooth transmission of power. Couplings also have applications in the areas of connecting railway coaches and within cars.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global elastomeric couplings market to grow at a CAGR of 3.27% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Elastomeric Couplings Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global elastomeric couplings market: ABB, Altra Industrial Motion, Rexnord, and Regal Beloit

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: DieQua, R+W Antriebselemente, Rathi, Siemens, and System Components.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Emergence of couplings with a wide range of torsional stiffness. The elastomeric couplings have always faced trouble in terms of torsional stiffness. However, with the emergence of new couplings with torsional stiffness and high torque transmission, elastomeric couplings are expected to witness a greater demand during the forecast period. These features are offered in a compact package, with variance in coupling size. Stiffness is a factor that can be simply changed by changing the arrangements and material properties of the elastomer elements. These new couplings have an enhanced stiffness from 900-5,900 Nm/rad over a wide range of 160-510 Nm. The new couplings offer twice the stiffness range and transmit three times the torque range that the present couplings offer.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Advantages of elastomeric over other metal couplings. Elastomeric couplings offer better flexibility than any metal coupling. They can transmit torque between two shafts with the help of the material they are made of, such as rubber or urethane. The resilience of the elastomeric couplings offers various degrees of torsional softness, which is a unique advantage of elastomeric coupling over other metal couplings. Their capability to prevent misalignment, both angular and parallel, is better in comparison to other couplings. The power intensity of elastomeric couplings is defined as torque-carrying capacity with respect to the coupling size. This factor of elastomeric coupling is also lower than other couplers. Also, with no frictional wear between components, there is a minimal need for maintenance.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Withstanding rise in temperature. The rise in temperature restricts the use of elastomeric couplings. The material loses its strength with the rapid increase in temperature. The normal temperature endurance limit is 200°F- 250°F and anything exceeding this can eventually reduce the strength of the elastomer to zero.
