Global Tapered Roller Bearings Market 2017-2021
About Tapered Roller Bearings
Tapered roller bearings have an inner ring, an outer ring, a cage, and rollers that are assembled together to distribute load evenly throughout the bearings. Inner ring and outer ring are also known as cone and cup, respectively. Tapered roller bearings have conical rollers that are supported by back-to-face rib arrangement on the cone. This structure enables these bearings to carry high radial loads and axial loads in one direction. Tapered roller bearings are generally manufactured with alloy steel or low-carbon steel.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global tapered roller bearings market to grow at a CAGR of 5.33% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Tapered Roller Bearings Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global tapered roller bearings market: NSK, NTN, Schaeffler, SKF, and Timken.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AST Bearings, Boca Bearings, CPM SpA, Fersa Bearings, HRB, JTEKT, LYC Bearing, Nachi-Fujikoshi, NKE, Regal Beloit Corporation, and RKB.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is high load capacity of tapered roller bearings. Tapered roller bearings are extensively used in automobiles that are used for transportation purposes. Automobiles that carry loads require high-load capacity due to unbalanced loads and varied transportation environments. In such conditions, the amount of fuel spent in transportation also increases.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is tapered roller bearings offer less friction during industrial operations. Industries prefer tools and equipment that could be used for maintaining an energy-efficient atmosphere by curtailing frictional loss. Tapered roller bearings contribute toward the increasing demand for energy-efficient solutions in industries. These bearings are capable of performing in severe conditions and provide low friction during operations. For example, single-row tapered roller bearings are utilized where the load capacity is high, to ensure low power loss during operations. This saves a lot of energy and helps in maintaining an efficient performance throughout the process.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is mounting issues with tapered roller bearings. Tapered roller bearings need to be carefully mounted on the peripheral equipment or adjusted automobile parts. However, end-users face a lot of challenges while mounting tapered roller bearings on different assemblies. The major issue that arises while mounting a tapered roller bearing on the shaft is that a lot of pressure is required to ensure a perfect fit. The high pressure created on the outer race of the bearing usually causes denting. Due to the loose fitting, several particles can enter the bearing and cause wear.
