Composite Bearings Market Segment Analysis - By Material

Polytetrafluoro Ethylene (PTFE) Composite held the largest share in the composite bearings market in the year 2020. Owing to the properties such as low friction, high temperature capacity, low outgassing, and chemical inertness of polytetrafluoro ethylene (PTFE), make it a suitable filler material for a wide range of applications. When combined with its high melting temperature, it's the ideal high-performance replacement for the weaker and lower-melting-point polyethylene frequently utilized in low-cost applications. Also, PTFE's strong dielectric characteristics, particularly at high radio frequencies, making it ideal for use as an insulator in connector assemblies, cables, and microwave-frequency printed circuit boards. Thus, due to such factors, the growing demand for polytetrafluoro ethylene in the production of composite bearings is estimated to rise in the forecast period.

Composite Bearings Market Segment Analysis - By Type

Metal matrix sector held the largest share in the composite bearings market in the year 2020. Owing to its high strength, operational stability in tough situations and low price the demand for metal matrix composite bearings is anticipated to rise in the forecast period. Metal matrix composites (MMCs) are created by dispersing a reinforcing material throughout a metal matrix. Increasing demand for metal matrix owing to the rising demand for better wear resistance products in a variety of industries, including construction and mining, agricultural, and automotive has uplifted the growth of the market. Thus, with the growing demand for metal matrix the market is anticipated to rise in the forecast period.

Composite Bearings Market Segment Analysis - By End Use Industry

Automotive segment held the largest share in the composite bearings market in 2020 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.9% during the forecast period 2021-2026. Composite bearings are useful components in automobile design and are utilized in a variety of applications, from the powertrain to the interior of the car. Increasing usage of composite bearings to customize and satisfy the specific needs of a variety of automotive applications, including wear and high-temperature resistance is further anticipated to boost the market growth. Additionally, with the rising automotive production, it is anticipated that the market for composite bearings would also rise in the forecast period. According to the German Trade and Invest (GTAI), German automobile manufacturers produced over 16 million vehicles in the year 2019 and also, German passenger car and light commercial vehicle OEM generated foreign market revenue of almost EUR 282.4 billion (US$316.1 Million) in 2019, that is a 2% increase over the year 2018. Therefore, the increasing usage of composite bearings in the automotive industry is expected to drive the growth of the market in the forecast period.

Composite Bearings Market Segment Analysis - By Geography

The Asia Pacific region held the largest share with 42% in the composite bearings market in 2020. Globally, the Asia Pacific region dominates the demand for composite bearings market due to the rising automotive production in different countries. Growing demand for automotive in the emerging economies, such as China, India, Japan, and South Korea is anticipated to drive the market in the upcoming years. China is the leading automotive market in the world. According to the International Trade Administration, China appears to be the world's largest automotive sector, with the Chinese government predicting that the car production will reach 35 million units by 2025. Also, according to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), two wheelers and passenger cars accounted for 80.8% and 12.9% market share, respectively, accounting for a combined sale of over 20.1 million vehicles in FY20. Thus, the demand for the composite bearings market is therefore anticipated to increase in the APAC region over the forecast period.

Composite Bearings Market Drivers

Rising Demand for Composite Bearings in Solar Tracker

Solar has emerged as a potential energy source. Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) might account for up to 11.5 percent of worldwide electricity output by 2050, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA). Concentrated solar power (CSP) facilities generate electricity using concentrated solar radiation as a high-temperature energy source. A solar tracker is a device that aims solar reflectors directly at the sun. Bearings are utilized in the pivot points of heliostats to rotate the mirrors and sustain the structure in a parabolic trough (solar tower). To spin the mirrors in the parabolic trough and solar power tower, composite bearings can be implemented. They can bear the weights seen in CSP applications, are weather and corrosion resistant, and provide low and consistent friction (no stick-slip effect) throughout the mechanism's lifespan. Thus, with an increasing demand for composite bearings for solar tracking system, the market is anticipated to rise over the forecast period.

Increasing Demand for Composite Bearings in Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles (EV) are one of the fastest growing industries in recent years, as the automotive industry continues to evolve and economic and environmental concerns increase the demand for a move towards lower carbon emissions and sustainable solutions. Increasing usage of composite bearings owing to the lightweight, superior physical, long life, and mechanical (i.e. fatigue resistant) properties, the demand for composite bearings market is estimated to rise in the forecast period. Rising demand for EVs is also one of the major factors driving the composite bearings market growth. According to the International Energy Agency Organization (IEA), sales of electric cars rose to 2.1 million globally in 2019, surpassing 2018 already a record year to raise the stock to 7.2 million electric cars. Thus, the rising demand for composite bearings in the electric vehicle industry will raise the market demand in the projected period.

Composite Bearings Market Challenges

High Risk of Delamination

Risk of delamination, when two or more materials are joined due to potential air pockets and insufficient compression or temperature, is often seen in composite bearings. When a composite delaminates, it is vulnerable to further delamination, weakening, and becoming unsuitable for use. Excess stress that exceeds the matrix strength is the most common cause of matrix perpendicular or parallel cracks. Delamination can also occur when the matrix is made of unsuitable materials. Moreover, due to the nature of composite materials, the composite bearings require a certain amount of man-hours and specialized machinery in the various stages leading up to production. As a result, due to the above mentioned factors, the risk of delamination is considered as the major factor hindering the growth of the composite bearings market.

Composite Bearings Market Landscape

Technology launches, acquisitions, and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the composite bearings market. Major players in the composite bearings market are Huntsman International LLC, Schaeffler AG, Polygon Company, HyComp LLC, SGL Carbon, Rexnord Corporation, CIP Composites, Tenneco Inc., Trelleborg AB, KOR-PAK Corporation, and RBC Bearings Incorporated among others.
