Mounted Bearing Market: Global Size, Share, Trends, Growth and Forecast, 2022-2032

Mounted units provide a plethora of application and service options to end users. A mounted unit is generally a ball or roller bearing set into a housing. Mounted bearings, also called as bearing units or bearing blocks are motor components that drive relative action for desired motions. They are face or surface mounted in applications where the shaft is perpendicular to the unit. The main purpose of a bearing includes reducing friction between parts, serving regular rotation, machine assurance, sustaining the state of the rotating shaft.

They are primarily employed in both, light- and heavy-duty industries ranging from construction and mining to machineries such as conveyors on a food processing line, automobiles and others. They are increasingly used for radial thrust and heavy loads applications including powertrain and engine mountings.

The global mounted bearing market is expected to witness explicit growth at a tremendous CAGR in the next few years.


The growth of this market is attributed towards major relying factors which include: the growing durable goods manufacturing activities, growing adoption of mounted bearings in numerous industries , growing demand for specialized bearings for cost optimization; increasing development and adoption of sensor-based bearing units in IoT, increased output of heavy user industries and their expansions in fixed investment spending for mounted bearings which offer increased efficiency and long life with less maintenance requirements.

Additionally, mounted bearings are also used in carousels, conveyors, belt loaders, sorters, and stackers in warehouses and distribution centers for material handling which reduce operating costs and increase high return on investment. Also, mounted bearings are these days increasingly used in packaging and pallet wrapping applications as well. With this, stringent food safety standards and the adoption of new technologies propel the demand for premium mounted bearings in the food processing industry.

Moreover, top companies in the beverage industry are adopting measures to reduce water and energy consumption during the production process. The use of premium bearings in the conveyor increases sustainability by reducing water consumption, which requires their demand consistently, thereby fueling the market growth.

Furthermore, rise in disposable incomes, rise in consumer preference for lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicles, reduction in tax rates on passenger and commercial vehicles due to the coronavirus pandemic and the rising demand for electric vehicles will drive the automotive industry which will enhance the demand and manufacture of mounted bearings.

However, availability of counterfeit products, concerns relating to contamination and intense competition from bearing suppliers in lower cost countries are a few factors among others which hinder the growth of the market.

More importantly, the COVID-19 pandemic is expected negatively impact the mounted bearing market, but not on a large scale. Mounted bearings have huge potential in both the process and discrete industries. Though, the industry has taken a downfall due to the shutting down of various corporations concerning the global lockdown situation, certain industries have recommenced production and activity to overcome the losses incurred and to bring about a positive change in the economies of their nations.
