Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) March 25, 2014
Bearings are components that reduce friction and enhance motion between objects. Known as anti-friction components, they are widely used in automobiles, pumps, gearboxes, heavy earth moving equipment's and industries. The growth of the bearing industry is directly correlated with the automotive and industrial sectors. The domestic sale of bearings produced in India recorded a decline of 1.5% in 2012-2013 over the previous year, while the production value fell by 0.5% during the same period. The decline was on account of continued pressure of inflation, fiscal imbalances and high interest rates. Also, commercial vehicle production one of the largest consumer of bearings experienced a steep downfall in the same period.
A major portion of bearings market in India is unorganized that caters to the low-end replacement market. A significant percentage of bearings are imported from countries like Germany, Japan, China, Singapore, Sweden, France and Italy. The demand for the bearings is derived from two key user segments - the automotive and industrial sectors. The industrial market is larger than the automobile market in value terms. Total exports of bearings (ball and roller) declined by both value and volume terms in 2012-2013 compared to the previous fiscal year. The slowdown in exports was on account of the recent crisis in the Euro Zone and a global recession.
