India Automotive Bearing Market Overview

The automobile industry is dependent on vehicle reliability and its performance. The need for comfort, electrification, autonomous driving, and noise reduction is forcing manufacturers to evaluate every part of their vehicles for possible weight and space savings. Furthermore, a vehicle cannot be driven without a working bearing, which makes them a crucial component of the automotive industry. The primary purpose of the bearing is to ensure that moving parts of the car, like the seat track rails and steering column, move quietly and smoothly. Ball bearings, roller bearings, and plain bearings are the primary categories of bearings. Although this type of bearing has a restricted load capacity, ball bearings, as its title suggests, uses rows of balls as the rolling elements and offer extremely low rolling friction. Furthermore, Roller bearings, which have rolling components shaped like a cylinder, have a higher loading capacity than ball bearings. The simplest type of bearing, a plain bearing, also known as a sliding contact bearing, consists solely of a bearing surface and no rolling components. Furthermore, with the advent of cutting-edge bearing, they are demonstrating to be economical, enhancing the performance of the vehicle, and having a long bearing service life. Additionally, the demand for the India automotive bearing market also grows because of technological advancement and rising auto sales.

India Automotive Bearing Market Driver

Increasing Automotive Industry

The automobile industry is regarded as one of the key contributors to economic growth because of its relationships with several different sectors. Since vehicles require materials such as steel, aluminum, plastic, and other commodities, the growth of this industry benefits the commodity sector. India is one of the largest automotive markets in the world, with domestic sales of 17.5 million units in FY22. Moreover, the two-wheeler and passenger vehicle segments dominate the automobile sector. This results in increasing sales of bearings in vehicles. In addition, government incentives helped to boost the growth of EV demand which further boosts the production of bearings in India. Due to the aforementioned factors, by 2029, there will be an increase in demand for automotive bearings in the aftermarket as well.

India Automotive Bearing Market Challenge

Fluctuation In Cost of Raw Material

The cost of raw materials is still the major concern for manufacturers in India. Since high grade steel is one of the main raw materials used to manufacture bearing components, its fluctuating price has an impact on the operational revenue of manufacturers of bearing components. According to SteelMint, frequent price changes have been observed over the past 12 months. Furthermore, due to the fluctuations in the market, manufacturers have to rely on low profit margin or increase in end user prices. Moreover, unstable worldwide markets also have an impact on bearing manufacturers as they might not be able to control additional costs, expenses, and profits when raw material prices change. Furthermore, the changing supply and demand situation is impeding the expansion of the bearing sector. Moreover, the sector is anticipated to gain momentum in the next years by accelerating value chain processes and developing future capabilities.

India Automotive Bearing Market Trends

Increasing Penetration of Electric Vehicles and Technology Advancement

The automobile bearing manufacturers are investing in research and development to develop more efficient and durable bearings for vehicles. Additionally, with the Indian governments push towards the adoption of electric vehicle mobility, many manufacturers are focusing on developing specific bearings for electric vehicles. Furthermore, these bearings need to be able to handle high weights and temperature while also maintaining less noise and lightweight. With these developments, the automotive bearing market is expected to rise in the coming years.
