Increasing Vehicle Ownership Worldwide to Bolster Instrumented Bearing Market


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/10/2018 -- Global instrumented bearing market was valued at USD 570.4 million in 2014, growing at a CAGR of 8.6% from 2014 to 2020. Bearings are machine elements that are primarily used for reducing friction between moving parts. Instrumented bearings are integrated with sensor units for measuring angular position of the rotatable ring with respect to the fixed ring of the bearing. The information collected through these sensors are used in various applications such as anti lock braking system, adaptive cruise control, tire pressure monitoring system and other industrial sectors.
The global instrumented bearing market is segmented by region into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC) and Rest of the World (RoW). The instrumented bearing market is primarily driven by increase in automobile production globally. In addition, the growing demand for instrumented bearings from defense and aerospace industry is also influencing the growth of this market. Need for energy efficiency while operating various types of machinery is also contributing to the growth in demand for instrumented bearings globally.
