Report Summary

The global bearings market was valued at USD 118.23 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.6% during the forecast period. Bearings are components used for carrying a load while in contact with or moving relative to another part. Bearings enable movement between a stationary and mobile part of a machine to reduce friction and wear and tear of the machine.

The different types of the product include ball, roller, ball thrust, roller thrust, and tapered roller thrust bearings. Ball bearings are the most common and used in a wide range of applications. The product bears both radial and thrust loads and is usually used in applications with a relatively small load. Roller ones find applications in conveyer belt rollers for bearing heavy radial loads. In these types of products, the primary roller is a cylinder to distribute the load over a larger area and handle higher weight.
