Slewing Bearing is a rotational bearing component which usually is used in machines which requires heavy and bulky load handling. These bearings help in developing to and fro movements as well as rotational movements. Basically these are the machine elements, that work based on axial and radial forces which results in tilting moments. Slewing bearing arrangement provides several performance and design benefits over traditional bearings. Earlier slewing bearings were designed only to support horizontal arrangements, but now they are also used in vertical bearing structures.
Slewing Bearings find their application in wide range of applications across industries such as in access platforms, cranes, stackers, bottling machines, wind turbines & heliostats, robotic equipment, in mining , water treatment, material handling equipment and so on.
The report segments the slewing market into four verticals- by gear type, by construction/design equipment, by rolling element and by application. The market forces for the slewing bearings market are also explained in detail in the report. Increasing focus on the renewable energy and growing infrastructure industry is driving the growth of slewing bearings market. Indian slewing bearing market is driven by the growing number of wind farms; the total installed capacity of wind power as of 30 November 2015 was 24,759 MW.
