Plain Bearing Market by End User (Automotive, Industrial, Aerospace, Energy, Construction, Oilfield Machinery, Agricultural & Gardening Equipment, Office Products), Type (Journal, Linear, Thrust, Angular Contact), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022

“The global plain bearing market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% from 2017 to 2022”
The global plain bearing market is projected to reach USD 15.23 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 4.8% between 2017 and 2022. The increase in demand for plain bearings from the automotive industry is propelling the growth of this market. Plain bearings are being widely used in the automotive industry, owing to their properties such as lightweight, high corrosion & chemical resistance, high wear & fatigue resistance, and less noise. One of the major restraints inhibiting the growth of the global plain bearing market includes the increase in the life span of bearings due to technological innovations; hindering the aftermarket sales, ultimately affecting the global plain bearing market.

“Journal is the largest type segment of the global plain bearing market”
The journal type segment contributed the largest share to the global plain bearing market in 2016; this segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022. This growth is mainly attributed to the increasing demand for journal bearings from several end-use industries, such as automobile, aerospace, construction, and energy. In addition, unique properties of journal bearings that include a relatively simple design and construction, less noise, and high load carrying capacity are anticipated to propel the demand for journal plain bearings.

“The industrial segment is the second-largest end-user segment of the global plain bearing market”
The industrial end-user segment accounted for the second-largest share of the global plain bearing market in 2016; this segment is projected to grow at a high CAGR from 2017 to 2022. This growth is mainly attributed to the increasing demand for plain bearings in various industries. Plain bearings are used in industrial applications for elevators, production lines, and conveyor belts, among others.

“The European region was the second-largest plain bearing market in 2016”
The European region accounted for the second-largest share of the global plain bearing market in 2016, owing to the rise in demand for plain bearings from various end-use industries, such as automobile, aerospace, energy, construction, and agriculture. Germany, France, and the U.K. are the leading countries in terms of production and consumption of plain bearings in the European region. Moreover, the rising demand from the growing automotive and aerospace industries is further anticipated to drive the growth of the plain bearing market in the European region.
