From the period of 2022 to 2028, the Global Industrial Gearbox Market is expected to reach USD 33.7 Billion in terms of revenue, growing at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.1%.
An Industrial Gearbox is an enclosed system that transfers mechanical energy from one device to another. Typical product variations include spur gearboxes, helical gearboxes, coaxial helical inline gearboxes, and bevel helical gearboxes. Increased operating output, reduced workload, torque maintenance, vibration and noise reduction, and more are all advantages of these devices. Industrial gearboxes are utilized in a variety of industries, including power generation, construction, food and beverage processing, maritime, material handling, metal and mining, agriculture, and automotive.
The increasing use of automation in all industrial sectors, as well as the rapid growth of the construction industry and expanding manufacturing industries around the world, are driving up demand for industrial gearboxes. In addition, the growing usage of digitalization and robots in manufacturing industries such as paper, rubber, plastic, chemical, and cement is assisting the growth of the Industrial Gearbox industry.
Furthermore, increased demand for robot development for usage in auto and electric vehicle manufacturing is positively boosting market growth. The rapid expansion of the global automobile industry is accelerating the growth of the Industrial Gearbox Market. Over the forecast period, however, a slowdown in European industrialization and technical challenges such as power overload, gear wear, and water and oil particulate contamination are predicted to stifle market growth.
Key Highlights from the Report
- The market is divided into six types: planetary, helical, bevel, spur, worm, and other (Helical-Bevel, Planetary Worm). Helical was the market leader in 2020. In a helical gearbox, the teeth of a helical gear are cut at an angle to the gear's face. During the process, contact between two teeth is gradual, starting at one end of the tooth and continuing until the gear is fully engaged. As a result, it can operate smoothly while producing enormous thrust outputs. Helical gearboxes are used in medium and heavy-duty industrial vehicle transmissions because they can manage high speeds and loads. Modular design and construction provide numerous engineering and performance benefits, including a high degree of interchangeability of parts and sub-assemblies. As a result, significant cost reductions are realized while the highest level of component integrity is maintained.
- The market is divided into three categories based on design: parallel axis, angular axis, and others (non-coplanar and non-parallel axis). The parallel axis leads the worldwide Industrial Gearbox Market, and this position is expected to hold during the projected period. Due to the parallel axis design employed in the construction of helical and planetary gearboxes, the parallel sector is predicted to lead the market. Parallel gearboxes are also quieter than non-parallel gears and have larger load capabilities. All of these factors are projected to enhance market growth throughout the forecast period.
- is the fastest regional segment in terms of growth. One of the key factors driving market expansion is increased investment in residential and industrial infrastructure development, particularly in developing economies such as China, Japan, India, and South Korea. An increasing variety of manufacturing industries, such as metal, paper, plastic, food, packaging, and chemical, are also contributing to the region's demand for industrial gearboxes.
Industrial Automation is Becoming More Widely used in a Variety of Industries
The rapid modernization of manufacturing infrastructure, combined with increased energy demand in emerging nations, will drive gearbox use worldwide. Material handling equipment, conveyors, crushers, cranes, and cooling towers all employ them. Several gears are utilized in the manufacturing business during the production process. They're used in a variety of raw material rolling, processing, and refinement applications. Band saws and driving rollers, bending presses, and tube bending machines are examples. The US Department of Energy (DoE) stated in February 2020 that it would invest USD 74 million in 63 projects across the country to test, study, and create flexible and energy-efficient technology. Furthermore, the government organization expressed its enthusiasm for improving the energy flexibility and efficiency of commercial and residential structures in the United States. During the projected period, this factor is expected to boost the global market.
Developing Economies, such as the Middle East and Africa, are Becoming More Industrialized.
As the world becomes more industrialized and automated, the demand for gearboxes will rise. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Qatar, and Bahrain are becoming a key supply chain potential for the automotive sector, according to a poll by LMC Automotive Ltd, with light vehicle sales predicted to rise by 6% by 2020. From an engineering standpoint, the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi (RNM) company partnership leads logistics from Japan to bring Nissan Patrol Safari to market and create export growth potential cheval In April 2021, EURODRIVE announced new standards for the industrial gear unit. The new standards pertain to the Assemble to Order (ATO) - 5 programmers, which resulted in industrial gear units being shipped in 5 days from the manufacturing plant.
During the forecast period, North America is expected to increase at a faster rate. The region's market growth is supported by rapid economic expansion, substantial infrastructure development, and the application of AI and automation in manufacturing industries.
