US demand for industrial power transmission equipment will grow 6.1 percent annually through 2008. Clutches and brakes, along with pulleys and sheaves, will lead gains. Rapid growth in construction and metalworking machinery will help make the industrial machinery segment the fastest growing major market.
This study analyzes the $2.8 billion US industrial power transmission component industry. It presents historical demand data for 1993, 1998 and 2003 and forecasts to 2008 and 2013 by product (e.g., sprockets and chains, clutches and brakes, couplings and universal joints, pulleys and sheaves); and by market (e.g., industrial machinery, nonautomotive transportation equipment).
The study also examines the market environment, reviews industry structure and market share, and profiles 34 competing producers including RBS Global, Rockwell Automation, Colfax, and Emerson Electric.
