World Bearings

As Quoted In Drives&Controls

Global demand for ball, roller and plain bearings will climb 6.4 percent annually through 2012. Gains will be driven by a shift toward more expensive, better performing units. Demand in developing parts of Asia, Eastern Europe, Africa/Mideast and Latin America will outpace sales in the US, Western Europe and Japan.

This study analyzes the $48.4 billion world bearing industry. It presents historical demand data (1997, 2002 and 2007) and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by product (e.g., ball bearings, roller bearings, plain bearings, mounted and combined ball/roller bearings), market (e.g., motor vehicles, industrial machinery, aerospace equipment), world region and for 30 countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 industry competitors, including SKF, Schaeffler and NSK.
