The global ceramic ball bearings market is driven by the flourishing automotive industry. The United States is the leading regional market for the product globally. The market is finding impetus in the growing dependency of the defence and aerospace sector on ceramic ball bearings to boost energy efficiency.

 

Properties and Applications

Ball bearing is referred to as a rolling-element bearing that utilises balls to maintain an appropriate gap between its movable parts. It helps reduce the rotational friction that is caused by the working of a machine. The ball bearing comprises an outer ring, an inner ring, steel balls, and a cage. Owing to its simple design, durability, low maintenance expenses, and operating temperature, the ball bearing is widely used in automobiles, aircrafts, medical equipment, and others.

Market Analysis 

The global ceramic ball bearings market is driven by the growing demand for different automobile components, commercial vehicles, and passenger cars in the emerging economies in the past few years. The market is further aided by the technological advancements taking place in the industry, such as lightweight materials, integrated components of both stainless steel as well as ceramic bearings, and lubrication and seal technologies to make ball bearings more efficient and achieve high performance. Such developments have opened up several opportunities for the manufacturers operating in the ceramic ball bearings market. In addition to this, the product is being increasingly used to replace stainless ball bearings installed in grinding media, agitators, and valves, which is propelling the market growth. The market growth is, however, being hindered by the air and land pollution caused by the extraction of ceramic materials.
