The report opines that the growth of the market will behold fluctuations during the COVID-19 pandemic owing to hindered operations in the railway sector. However, governments and private railway network operators are introducing policies and investments to cover lost revenue opportunities, and this is likely to alleviate the impact to an extent.

Key Takeaways

  • The global railway bearings market is poised to surpass a valuation of US$ 4.5 Bn by 2030.
  • Roller bearings will remain top-selling category, accounting for over 3/5th of market value through the assessment period.
  • Based on application, the wheels segment will capture nearly half of global market value.
  • By type of train, freight trains will account for over 40% of global value, ascribed to high spending by private freight rail network operators on timely maintenance and upgrades.
  • The aftermarket segment will channel nearly 65% of revenue to the market owing to increased spending on aftermarket servicing.
  • Europe will reign supremacy over the regional landscape, capturing around 2/5th of market share.
  • East Asia, South Asia, and Pacific will cumulatively account for nearly 40% of global value, backed by soaring investments to develop railway networks.

“Market players are focusing on developing advanced yet cost-effective railway bearings that require minimal maintenance in order to build a loyal consumer base,” remarks FMI analyst.

COVID-19 Impact

COVID-19 pandemic is expected to adversely impact the growth of the market as operations in the railway sector, including maintenance and production, come to a screeching halt. Moreover, hampered productions and travel restrictions are decelerating the demand for railway bearings during the pandemic and the downtrend is likely to prevail through 2020.

However, governments are investing in the railway sector to lower the long-term impact. For instance, China’s Zhejiang provincial government increased its spending on railways in the first half of 2020 to cope up with the losses caused by COVID-19. Such initiatives will alleviate the impact to an extent.
