The instrumented bearing market was valued at $92.7 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach $164.84 billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period of 2017-2024.The ball bearing segment generated the highest revenue share, accounting for more around 50% of in the global instrumented bearing market in 2016.

A bearing is a machine element that restricts relative motion to the desired motion by reducing the friction between moving parts. A highly engineered and precision-made component enables the machinery to move at high speed and carry remarkable loads with ease and efficiency. For getting higher efficiencies and better machine control, embedded instrumentation is done in bearings.  This instrumentation may include thermocouples, resistance temperature detectors, and angular position sensors. The data gathered from these sensors can be used for numerous applications such as anti-lock braking system, tire pressure monitoring, and other industrial sectors.

Market Dynamics

Constantly increasing demand for instrumented bearings from the aerospace and defense industries is a major driving agent for the instrumented bearing market. Bearings being a vital component in the operation of several machines and being directly related to processing efficiency and energy saving is required in nearly every mechanical industry. Increasing applications of instrumented ball bearings in components of motor engines, railway coaches, consumer electronics, automotive wheels, and hard drives, amongst others are the key drivers for the growth of the instrumented bearing market. However,   increase in counterfeit products and shrinking after sales market can act as a restraint to the instrumented bearing market growth. Emerging technological advancements are witnessed to help the growth of new product segments.
