Gears, Drives and Speed Changers: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn - Gears, drives and speed changers are crucial components that find application in a multitude of industries for powering machinery. Key end-use industries include automotive, food and beverage processing, paper and pulp, plastic, rubber, power generation, mining, material handling, and oil & gas, among others. Renewed activity in these sectors is helping drive demand for gears, drives and speed changers. The automotive industry represents a major end-use market with opportunities in this space critically hinged upon automotive production and sales worldwide. Strong automotive sales expected in Asia-Pacific and Latin America as a result of healthy economic growth and improvements in standard of living, will therefore benefit growth in this sector. Other promising end-use sectors include aerospace, industrial and marine, among others. In the industrial sector, encouraging gains in global manufacturing PMI signals an optimistic outlook for gears, industrial drives and speed changers. Global manufacturing PMI although fragile and plagued with persistent challenges continues to recover, providing reasons for optimism.

Demand in the military aerospace sector will also gain traction in the coming years, as a result of the growing base of military aircraft fleet, which offers strong market opportunities for aircraft power transmission components, including gears and gear drives. While defense spending in the United States takes a hit due to fiscal cliff concerns and budget sequestration, defense spending in other regions continues to be strong. China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Germany, Turkey and India especially are emerging as top military spenders. Dedicated budget for R&D and development of new military vehicles is also expected to boost market prospects for power transmission equipment in this sector. Safety is of utmost importance in aviation sector and highly relies on sophistication of maintenance, repair and overall (MRO) industry. Increased emphasis on MRO of aging military vehicle and aircraft fleet will bring in significant aftermarket demand for gear boxes and other transmission equipment in this sector.

Spiraling energy demand worldwide as a result of rapid economic and industrial growth in developing countries is resulting in increased investments in power infrastructure development. Establishment of new power plants and planned expansions in existing power plants is expected to drive demand for a range of gears, drives and speed changers used in power generation equipment like turbines. Growing focus on renewable energy amidst growing concerns over fossil fuel depletion and environmental pollution is driving demand for wind turbine gears. Wind turbine gearboxes form an integral component of wind power generation equipment and increased development of onshore as well as offshore wind farms in countries across the globe is offering robust growth opportunities for wind turbine gearboxes.

As stated by the new market research report on Gears, Drives and Speed Changers, Europe represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing regional market with a projected CAGR of 6.8% over the analysis period. Growth in the region is led by rapid industrialization, strong GDP gains, increased investments in the industrial sector, and outsourcing induced expansion of the manufacturing base in low cost Asian countries.
