Aerospace and Defense Elastomers Market

North America to Hold the Highest Revenue Share in the Global Aerospace Bearing Market During 2018-2026

Global Aerospace Bearing Market Report Overview

An Aerospace Bearing is a component used to reduce load as well as friction between the moving or rotating parts in an automobile. Aerospace bearings reduce the axial as well as radial load and improve the fuel efficiency. Aerospace Bearings also reduce the maintenance of the aircraft. Different types of bearings, such as roller bearings, ball bearings and plain bearings, are used for different applications.

Aerospace bearings are used in all aircrafts, including narrow body aircrafts, wide body aircrafts, freighters and regional jets. The primary use of a bearing in an aircraft is to reduce the radial and axial force that is directly applied to shafts. That apart, aerospace bearings also facilitate easy movement of doors, seats and components of flight control systems and engine management systems without any failure.

In this aerospace bearing market report, we have considered aerospace bearings installed in commercial aircrafts and regional jets only. Military and private aircrafts have not been considered under the scope of research. In this aerospace bearing report, we have crunched separate markets for aerospace bearings employed by OEM and aerospace bearings replaced in aftermarket. The narrow body aircraft type segment is projected to remain dominant in terms of both value and volume market share and is expected to grow with high value-high growth rate. With this growth and exceptional sales volume, the narrow body aircraft segment is emerging as a lucrative segment for key suppliers of bearings in the global aerospace bearings market.

Factors Influencing the Aerospace Bearing Market Growth (Market Dynamics)

Surge in long-haul air travel is resulting in rising demand for wide body aircrafts, which in turn, is boosting the sales of aerospace bearings. According to a 2015 report published by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the number of passengers travelling by air increased to 3.4 billion passengers in 2015 from 3.3 billion passengers in 2014, registering a growth of 3%. Growing passenger travel is increasing the demand for new aircrafts for long hauls flight as well as short haul flights and will positively impact the growth of the aerospace bearing market over the forecast period. Moreover, improving economic and demographic conditions in developing regions, such as Asia Pacific, will accelerate the growth of the aircraft market, which in turn, will fuel the demand for aerospace bearings.

The global aviation industry is growing at a robust pace and is characterized by intense competition among major airline carriers. These airline carriers go to great lengths to increase their passenger share – they are adding more destinations, decreasing pricing aggressively and renovating aircrafts frequently. Increasing disposable income of middle-class population in developing regions is increasing the air travel passenger count, which in turn, is increasing the demand for commercial aircrafts and directly impacting the global aerospace bearing market.

The global aerospace bearing market is presently being dominated by a few global players with strong distribution networks and supply chains in major aerospace markets. Despite the fact that Asia Pacific countries have small-scale manufacturers for a variety of aerospace bearings, the market proposition will remain positive for leading players due to fact that aerospace OEMs will be inclined towards Tier-1 players and also have long term agreements and contracts with global manufacturers for the supply of bearings. On the flipside, market access for small scale players will majorly remain limited to the aftermarket demand. These are some of the factors that will influence the aerospace bearing market positively.
