Polymer bearings came into existence as an alternative for metal bearings. These bearing are generally used in the applications where wear and tear rate is high which limits the performance of the metal bearing, or where they may have exposure to chemicals or moisture. Such bearings are manufactured from polymers such as PP, PE, PT or a combination of polymers and possesses several advantages over metallic or other types of bearings, such as: resistance to acid, alkali, grease, wax and solvents, corrosion resistance, their nonconductive nature and self-lubrication, among others. Globally increasing demand for the polymer bearing the major end use industries due to its advantages over metal bearings is expected to remain key growth driver during the period of study.
This report identifies the polymer bearing market size in for the year 2015-2017, and forecast of the same for year 2022. It also highlights the potential growth opportunities in the coming years, while also reviewing the market drivers, restraints, growth indicators, challenges, market dynamics, competitive landscape, and other key aspects with respect to polymer bearing market.
Geographically Asia Pacific dominated polymer bearing market owing to higher demand from the major sectors such as automobile, pharmaceutical, chemicals and others in the large region. Asia-Pacific was followed by Europe and North America as the second and third largest markets for polymer bearing. Expanding industrial base and changing industrial land scape in the Asia-Pacific is expected to result into highest growth for the polymer bearing market globally during the period of study.
