Bearings: China

This report forecasts to 2025 bearings demand and shipments in nominal US dollars at the manufacturer level in China. Total demand is segmented by product in terms of: ball bearings, roller bearings, plain bearings, mounted and combination bearings, and bearing parts. Total demand is also segmented by market as follows: machinery; motor vehicles; motorcycles; aerospace equipment; and other markets such as appliances, bicycles, and boats.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand is provided in annual series from 2010 to 2020; shipments and the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2010, 2015, and 2020.

Excluded from the scope of this report are adaptor and withdrawal sleeves; flexure, fluid, and magnetic bearings; lock nuts and washers; lubricators; and retaining plates. Whenever possible, efforts were made to prevent bearing sales from being counted more than once in the numbers presented here, although it is difficult to do because of the structure of the bearing industry.

For any given historical year, US dollar amounts are obtained from values expressed in the applicable local currency. These local currency values are converted to US dollars at the average annual exchange rate for that year. For forecast years, the US dollar amounts assume the same annual exchange rate as that prevailing in 2020.

Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided with quantified trends. Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading suppliers, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
