Gears

US demand for gears and gear assemblies will rise 3.9 percent annually through 2013. Gains will be supported by rebounding levels of motor vehicle production, and by value gains from product improvements and upgrades such as transmissions with higher numbers of speeds. Vehicular gear assemblies will register the strongest growth.

This study analyzes the $25 billion US gears industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by gear material (metals, plastic), product (e.g., vehicular gear assemblies, speed reducers and changers, gearmotors, individual gears) and market (e.g., motor vehicles, aerospace equipment, machinery).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 35 industry players, including General Motors, Ford and Eaton.
