Global Rigid Sleeve Couplings Market 2017-2021
About Rigid Sleeve Couplings
The global rigid sleeve couplings market is expected to witness a stable growth during the forecast period. The market includes all rigid couplings with sleeves that are used for the transmission of power/torque through shafts. The major factors that will drive the demand in the market will be the low cost of the couplings and their high-power transmission capabilities. The global couplings market is considered as the parent market to the market in focus and includes elastomeric couplings, mechanical couplings, and metallic couplings. Couplings form an integral part of rotating machines that have shafts to connect with a series of systems. Couplings ensure transmission of power and torque between shafts without any loss of energy and wear in the system.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global rigid sleeve couplings market to grow at a CAGR of 4.64% during the period 2017-2021.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Advances in coupling technology
With the advent of 3D printers, couplings manufactured using 3D printing technology is becoming a trend. 3D printing allows for cheaper manufacturing with shorter lead time requirement and easier customization of end-products. As the manufacturing process or assembly does not require significant changes for each type of couplings, 3D printing has gained attention from several manufacturers.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is High torsional rigidity without backlash. Rigid couplings are designed to allow for high torsional rigidity without backlash. They are used in applications such as pumps, fans, and blowers that operate at high speed or have a high horsepower requirement. There are set parameters for selecting rigid sleeve couplings such as torque and horsepower requirements, tolerance for shaft misalignment, torsional flexibility, backlash, and service condition.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Zero tolerance for misalignment. Rigid sleeve couplings require accurate alignment and do not compensate for an angular axial or parallel misalignment. Misalignment is a major cause of concern for rigid sleeve couplings use, and if appropriate couplings are not used then, this may lead to high vibration and unbalanced shafts. The zero tolerance for misalignment in rigid sleeve couplings limits the scope of application.
