Demand for wind turbines has been increasing, due to the rise in the number of wind turbine installations, across the world. It permits the positioning of one part with respect to another in such a way that relative movement is possible, coming into play in different parts of the turbine. The total net installed capacity in Europe stood at 169 gigawatt in 2017, which is the second-largest form of power generation in Europe. Wind turbine bearings are intended to withstand extraordinary temperatures, load fluctuations, support access, and grease enhancement. Developments and improvement in the field of wind power generation, vast number of wind installation projects, and rise in demand for effective wind turbine components are driving the wind turbine bearings market. The other factors, such as adoption of Industrial Internet of things based smart bearings, increment in government activities and policies worldwide to support the installation of wind turbines, increment in application of high capacity bearing in wind turbines, rise in energy consumption, will propel the demand for the wind turbines bearings market during the forecast period.

Increase in wind Installation Projects in the Region

Clean energy investments in Europe is receiving huge impetus from the governments in the region, with intentions to reduce green-house gas emissions in the region. In 2017, the total capacity of wind energy projects that reached final investment decision in Europe stood at 11.5 gigawatt, which had a value of EUR 22.3 billion. The installation of offshore wind energy projects is likely increase in the region on account of the huge potential that would promulgate the wind turbine bearings market in Europe, during the forecast period.

European Bearing Market Continues to Grow

The European bearing market is showing healthy growth because of use of more sophisticated bearings, with improved performance and growing demand for bearings with longer service life, more noteworthy load capacities, higher productivity, and lower support requirements. The acceptance of Industrial Internet of things (IIOT)-based smart bearings, which can self-analyze approaching shortcomings and failures is anticipated to witness growth in the wind energy sector. In the renewable power segment, spherical bearings for wind turbines rotor blades and cylindrical roller bearings for generators are expected to be the differentiating product segments that offer opportunities for high-quality bearing suppliers.
