Stratview Research has published a new report titled “Automotive Bearing Market” which is segmented by Vehicle Type (Passenger Vehicle, Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV), and Medium & Heavy Commercial Vehicle (MHCV)), by Bearing Type (Ball Bearing, Roller Bearing, and Plain Bearing), by Material Type (Metallic, Non-Metallic, and Hybrid), by Application Type (Engine & Transmission System, Steering System, Wheels, and Others), by End-User Type (OE and Aftermarket), and by Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World).


As per the study, the market is subjected to mark a healthy rebound in the coming years to reach an estimated value of US$ 18.31 billion in 2026. 

The automotive bearing market is highly dependent on the organic growth of automotive production and follows similar strides as automotive production.


Report Highlights

This report covers comprehensive data on emerging trends, market drivers, growth opportunities, and restraints that can affect the industry’s market dynamics. It provides a thorough analysis of the market segments which include products, applications, and competitor analysis.


The market is bifurcated into various segments. Below given is the segment-wise analysis -

Vehicle Trends

The automotive bearing market is segmented into passenger vehicles, LCVs, and MHCVs.

A passenger vehicle is expected to maintain its indubitable lead in the market till 2026, driven by a sustained increase in urban demand, rising consumer disposable income, increasing motorization rate, and reasonably higher production of passenger cars than commercial vehicles.

Among all vehicles, a passenger vehicle was least affected in 2020 and is expected to register the fastest recovery followed by LCV. In a passenger car, an electric vehicle is estimated to record a brilliant growth trajectory in the coming years.


Bearing Trends

The automotive bearing market is segmented into ball bearings, roller bearings, and plain bearings.

Ball bearing is likely to remain the dominant bearing type in the market till 2026, given its characteristics of efficient functioning at higher speed as compared to roller bearings and its ability to bear both radial and axial load in moderate amounts.


Material Trends

The automotive bearing market is segmented into metallic, non-metallic, and hybrid.

Metallic bearing is projected to maintain its invincible lead in the market till 2026, propelled by its ability to sustain applications involving extremely high loads and fast rotations per minute (rpm). Stainless steel is the most widely used bearing material type, its excellent corrosion- and temperature-resistant properties make it superior to other competing materials.

The non-metallic bearing type is anticipated to make the fastest recovery in the post-pandemic market developments, closely followed by the hybrid bearing.


Which Region is expected to remain the largest market?

All regions registered massive downfalls in 2020 in the wake of the pandemic. Asia-Pacific registered the minimum loss in 2020 and is projected to maintain its lead in the global automotive bearing market during the forecast period.

China, India, and Japan, with a majority of the world’s population, are creating a massive demand for vehicles, which, in turn, is causing a stir in the region’s automotive bearing market. The Chinese automotive industry is witnessing an advanced recovery after the strategic and efficient control of the COVID-19 outbreak.

North America and Europe are also likely to bounce back, creating a healthy demand in the years to come.
