The global market for electric vehicle bearings will reach approximately $41,127.0 Million 2031 $2,261.5 Million In 2021, the CAGR will be 34.1% for the forecast period 2022-2031

The rising demand for electric vehicles as well as high-speed electronic vehicle bearings is driving the growth of the global electric car bearings market. The electric vehicle bearings market is growing because of the increased focus on vehicle weight.

Due to the rapid growth of electric vehicle markets, bearings are being tested for various performance parameters. This includes a wider operating temperature and a greater speed range.

Market Lifecycle Stage

The main purpose of bearings in electric vehicles is to support axial and circular loads, and reduce friction. The rising desire to reduce vehicle weight is the main reason for the rise in global electric vehicle bearings markets.

Market growth is expected to be driven by increased investments in research and development by various manufacturers of electric car bearings. In order to increase their innovative capabilities, the electric vehicle bearings market players have been focusing on product launches.

The market for electric vehicle bearings is expected to expand due to favorable government policies that support the adoption of electric cars around the world, technological advancements in bearing material, lubrication technologies and increased competition. There are still challenges to overcome, such as optimizing bearing size without compromising motor performance and cage design challenges for electric vehicle bearings. They will be overcome by the ongoing important developments in the market during the forecast period.

Impact of COVID-19

COVID-19 has had a moderately negative impact on the electric vehicle bearings sector, compared to its impact on other industries. Due to variables such as the growing demand and annual sales for electric cars, there has been a significant rise in the demand for components and parts for electric vehicle components.

In addition, the COVID-19 epidemic had a negative impact upon the exploitation of resources like aluminum, steel, and copper. However, the sales of EVs by prominent manufacturers have increased significantly in the past two years.

Segmentation in the Market

According to propulsion, the battery electric vehicle (BEV), which accounted for the largest part of the global electric vehicle bearings industry in 2021 at 63.4%, was expected to grow at a 35.1% CAGR between 2022-2031. Support from various government agencies, particularly in developing countries, is expected to support BEV’s growth.

E-Axle was the most prominent application in the global electric car bearings market, accounting for 30.2% of the total market. The motor application is predicted to grow at a 35.6% CAGR between 2022-2031. E-Axle’s sales have increased tremendously with the rising popularity of EVs, in terms both of range and performance. E-Axle’s sales are also rising due to better EV performance standards and increased rideability.

According to vehicle type, the passenger vehicle accounted the largest share at 61.0% in global electric vehicle bearings markets in 2021. Commercial vehicle is expected grow at a CAGR 35.3% between 2022-2031. The rapidly increasing adoption of electric versions and the global increase in production and sale of passenger cars is responsible for the growth of passenger vehicles.

Based on sales channel, OEM was the dominant player in the global electric car bearings market with 100.0%. In 2021, the aftermarket was the most important, growing at a 35.0% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) between 2022-2031. Major factors driving the OEM’s share in the electric vehicle bearings industry are the rebounds in production of cars, trucks, buses and other motor vehicles (e.g. vans).

Based on product, the ball bearing held the largest share of the global electric vehicle bearings industry in 2021 at 59.1%. It is expected to grow at a CAGR 34.8% between 2022-2031. Global adoption of electric cars is increasing the demand for ball bearings.

Steel accounted for 50.6% of the global electric vehicle bearings industry in 2021. However, polymer is expected grow at a 35.1% compound annual growth rate between 2022- 2031. The market is boosted by steel being used as the main bearing material for the roller bearings and ball bearings, and also as the rolling component.

The China A significant market share is held by region among other regions like North America Europe. The industry is experiencing a boom due to increasing electrification and changing raw material prices. In addition, the industry’s growth is being driven by the increased use of sensor bearing units as well as the technological developments made possible by the producers.
