Selected Value Chain Analysis done in the full report
  • The value chain depicts several stakeholders such as components, raw material suppliers, research organization and patent holders, various legislative authorities as well as testing and certifying bodies.
  • Sub component manufacturers comprises of raw material providers, fabricated structures and some other minute components manufacturing enterprises.
  • Initially, the product prototype developed by the R&D department (in case of new product) or pre-specified requirements is given to the component manufacturer by the end user who then forwards their requirements to the component/ sub component manufacturer.
  • The specification sometimes includes customized bearings based on the product design specifications and demands. The bearings will be manufactured as per the application specifications.
  • At each phase, the bearings or bearing components has to be manufactured as per the industry standards. There are a number of certifying bodies such as ATEX, NEC, IECEx, CEC and so on, which specifies the requirements of the bearings at each phase of the value chain.
  • After-market comes into value chain scenario after the bearings are delivered to the end users. Aftermarket includes the supply of raw materials or spare parts of these bearings when they are subjected to failure. 
  • Key aftermarket services and products include the bearings materials suppliers, pre-fabricated structure providers, which are usually spare parts. These spare parts are to be replaced under maintenance, repair and overhaul services.
  • After-market is gaining the popularity in various industries including construction, mining, energy sector and so on, where there has been high scope for the failure or declining operational efficiencies due to continuous heavy loads.
