Market Opportunities

  • Increased use of high capacity bearings in wind turbines
  • The incorporation of electro-mechanical features into bearings for medical applications

Market Definition

Bearings are mechanical elements that allow only the desired motion of the components to which they are attached. Due to the high torque involved in locomotive operation, there is always the risk of a component moving away from its axis of rotation, causing the entire system to fail. Bearings are critical in operations where the rotational force of certain objects must be kept within certain limits and anything unusual beyond the expected movement can cause operations to be disrupted. Bearings are critical components in railway operations because they maintain the friction between moving parts in railway systems, ensuring that various components do not collide or separate. Railway bearings are used in a variety of applications, including the engine, wheels, interiors, and exteriors.

Global Railway Bearing Market Dynamics

Drivers

  • Heavy investments from governing authorities towards development of railway infrastructure

Governments around the world, both in developing and developed countries, are investing heavily in railway infrastructure, creating demand for systems and parts used in freight and passenger trains. As the production of railway systems is expected to increase, the use of railway bearings is expected to increase. For instance, the United States allocated $248.5 million in grants in March 2020 to fund several state and local railroad infrastructure projects through the Consolidated Rail Infrastructure and Safety Improvements (CRISI) Program. The funding's goal is to improve the safety of railway networks and systems. Because railway bearings indirectly influence the safety of railway networks, the funding is expected to boost the market.

  • Market players are focusing on developing bearings in order to capitalise growing demand

Given that railway carriers are constantly in motion and frequently subjected to harsh physical conditions such as rain, cold temperatures, and extreme heat, mechanical components used in them are expected to be resistant to such extreme physical conditions. As a result, there is a high demand for high-quality, long-lasting bearings.

Market players are focusing on developing bearings that can withstand such harsh climatic conditions in order to capitalise on the growing demand. Furthermore, manufacturers are coating the bearings with ceramic or polymers to improve insulation and increase safety. Similarly, the availability of a diverse range of roller and ball bearings, such as cylindrical, tapered, angular contact, four-point contact, electrically insulated, deep groove, and so on, facilitates usage in a variety of sites and applications, driving market revenue.

Opportunity

Among the major factors driving the railway bearing market evenly are increased use of high capacity bearings in wind turbines, growth in bearings in energy-efficient vehicles, and demand in aerospace, railway, and other applications. Furthermore, the incorporation of electro-mechanical features into bearings for medical applications will open up new opportunities for the railway bearing market.

Restraints

Counterfeit products, on the other hand, will act as a restraint and will further challenge the growth of the railway bearing market during the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact on Railway Bearing Market

Due to advent of COVID-19, governments around the world declared lockdowns and other restrictions. The lockdown had hampered railway manufacturing as well as demand for rail transportation. Furthermore, labour shortages caused by social distancing norms and other constraints slowed the manufacturing process. The demand for railway antifriction bearing has increased since the suspension of railway manufacturing. Furthermore, the raw material required for the manufacture of railway antifriction bearings was unavailable, causing the entire operation to be disrupted. Globally, railway is a developing industry that COVID-19 disrupted, but it is expected to recover in the post-pandemic phase. The product market will grow due to high demand for railway products.
