Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

This industry manufactures ball bearings and roller bearings, which are small machines that constrain motion and reduce friction between moving parts of vehicles and other equipment. The industry depends on demand from a variety of transport and manufacturing markets, with foreign markets generating nearly half of the average operator's revenue. Revenue is also responsive to the price of steel, which is a key input into bearings and influences the price operators charge for their products. In the five years to 2014, moderate demand for bearings and volatile steel prices have induced revenue growth at an estimated 1.8% per year on average. In the five years to 2019, import penetration and increasing competition for key export markets is likely to constrain revenue growth further... purchase to read more

Ball bearings

Ball bearings are the most popular industry offering, generating an estimated 36.8% of revenue in 2014. A ball bearing is a type of bearing that uses small metallic balls, contained within at least two outer races, to separate between the bearing's moving parts. Ball bearings are used to reduce rotational friction in a vehicle and other moving objects and to support radial and axial loads. Because ball bearings have a lower load capacity than other (roller type) bearings, they are most popular for use in relatively light equipment, including computer hard drives, household appliances, ammunition and small missiles... purchase to read more
