Bearings Market is projected to reach $140,792 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 7.5% from 2016 to 2022.

The adoption of bearings has increased at a significant rate. This is attributed to the upsurge in adoption of bearings in heavy machinery and automotive. Heavy industry machinery includes equipment used for mining, infrastructure development, and construction. Therefore, increased investments in heavy machinery activities have fueled the growth of the bearings industry. Heavy industry machinery use a wide range of high-performance bearings to bear heavy loads and reduce energy consumption.

Bearings are anti-friction devices used in rotating equipment to minimize resistance and reduce wear and tear. They are used in various industries including automotive, electrical, mining & construction, and railway and aerospace.
