Key Market Players
Major players operating in the aerospace bearings market include SKF (Sweden), JTEKT Corporation (Japan), Schaeffler AG (Germany), The Timken Company (US), and RBC Bearings Inc. (US) among others. These companies have well-equipped manufacturing facilities and strong distribution networks across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East and Africa.
Based on type, the ball bearing segment is held the leading share of the aerospace bearings market during the forecast period.
Based on type, the aerospace bearings market has been segmented into ball bearing, roller bearing, plain bearing, and others. Bearings are devices used to enable rotational or linear movement while reducing friction and handling stress. Resembling wheels, bearings literally enable devices to roll, which reduces the friction between the surface of the bearings and the surface they are rolling over. Collectively ball bearings & roller bearings together held the majority share of the aerospace bearings market in 2020 as they find applications in multiple areas ranging from engines and cockpit controls to landing gears and aerostructures.
Based on material type, the metal segment is projected to lead the aerospace bearings market from 2021 to 2026.
Based on material type, the aerospace bearings market has been segmented base on material into metal, metal polymer & engineered plastic, fiber reinforced plastic, and ceramic. the metal segment held the largest share of the aerospace bearings market in 2020. Traditionally bearings are made from stainless steel metal due to the cost-effective nature and durability of the metal. However, the fiber reinforced composite and ceramic segments are anticipated to record high growth during the forecast period due to the increasing demand for lightweight and environmentally friendly products.
Based on application, the cockpit control and aerostructure segment is projected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period.
Based on application, the aerospace bearings market is segmented under landing gear, cockpit control, aerostructure, aircraft systems, engine & APU, door and aircraft interiors. The cockpit control and aerostructure segment is projected to record highest growth during the forecast period. The aerostructure refers to the body of an aircraft. The aerostructure is required to have an optimal proportion of the weight of the vehicle and payload. It needs to be strong enough to withstand exceptional circumstances in which it must operate, and durability is an important factor. Track roller bearings are typically used in aircraft structures. Track roller bearings are bearings with suitable external outside rolling rings designed to run along profiles or cams.
Based on platform, the fixed wing segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
Based on platform, the aerospace bearings market has been segmented into fixed wing, rotary wing, and unmanned aerial vehicle. The fixed wing segment is projected to record highest growth during the forecast period owing to demand for new fixed wing aircraft is expected to increase in the coming years due to the growing air passenger traffic and replacement of aging aircraft. Asia Pacific and the Middle East are expected to witness high growth in the aviation industry on account of increasing disposable income in these regions.
Based on sales channel, the aftermarket segment held the majority share of the aerospace bearings market from 2021 to 2026.
Based on sales channel, the aerospace bearings market has been segmented into OEM and aftermarket. In 2020, Aftermarket segment accounted for the dominating share of the global aerospace bearings market. Increasing safety regulations is propelling the maintenance checks of the aircrafts. Bearings which have wear & tear nature contribute to high replacement demand.
North America accounts for the largest share of the aerospace bearings market during the forecast period
North America accounted for the largest share of 36.2% of the aerospace bearings market in 2020. The presence of major aviation manufacturers such as Boeing (U.S.), Embraer (U.S.), and Bombardier (Canada) in North America is one of the significant factors driving the demand for aerospace bearings in this region. North America is expected to continue its dominance in the aerospace bearings market during the forecast period, owing to the established aviation industry in the region.
