Report Scope & Overview:
Plain bearing Market Size was valued at USD 11.63 billion in 2021, and is expected to reach USD 15.26 billion by 2028, and grow at a CAGR of 5.3 % over the forecast period 2022-2028. Plain bearings are simpler than other types because they only have a flat surface and don't have any rolling parts that can be attached to shafts. Also, the plain bearings can carry more weight than other types because they are small and light. Different end-user industries use these bearings for rotary motion.
End-use industries are buying more plain bearings, which is a good thing.
Plain bearings can be made cheaply in the Asia-Pacific region.
In the Asia-Pacific region, plain bearings can be made for a low price.
Changes in the prices of raw materials
Opportunities for Growth in Emerging Economies

More and more fake bearings are being made
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are problems with the supply chain, trade, and the economy as a whole.
Impact of Covid-19:
Effects of COVID-19 on the World Plain Bearing Market
The pandemic is expected to have a big effect on many parts of the value chain of plain bearings, especially in 2021. This effect is expected to show up during the forecast period. COVID-19 has a number of effects, which are as follows:
Effect on plain bearing market: The COVID-19 pandemic had a small effect on the plain bearing market. Plain bearings have a lot of potential in the construction, energy, automotive, and aerospace industries. COVID-19 had a bigger effect on the market for bigger bearings than on the market for smaller bearings because production and sales in discrete industries like cement, mining, etc. were slow because of lockdowns all over the world.
Impact on manufacturers of plain bearings: Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, most of the factories that make plain bearings have either closed or are running at a lower capacity.
Impact on end-use industries: The aerospace industry is the one that will be most affected by COVID-19. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, air travel was stopped in many places, which had a big effect on airlines. The businesses of aircraft OEMs have been hurt by the mass grounding of aircraft fleets and the lack of new large orders and deliveries. AeroCentury Corp. filed for bankruptcy in March 2021 because airlines in the United States and other countries were less interested in renting planes during the pandemic.

In 2021, more than 40% of revenue came from the Asia-Pacific region. The growth of the bearings market in Asia-Pacific is being driven by countries like China and Japan. Sales are expected to rise in the next few years because of the rapid growth of machinery and car manufacturing, as well as a strong aftermarket for industrial equipment repair and car repair.
In the next few years, sales of automotive bearings are expected to go up a lot in Asia and the Pacific, especially in India, China, and Japan. In India and China, where more than a third of the world's population lives, people are buying more cars and two-wheelers. This helps the sales of automotive bearings in these countries. For automotive bearings, the market is expected to grow steadily in North America and Europe, which are more developed. During the forecast period, countries like South Africa and Brazil are expected to have high growth rates.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.
Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.
The 5 steps process:
Step 1: Secondary Research:
Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.
Step 2: Primary Research
When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data. This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.
We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.
Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.
This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.
Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.
Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.
Step 3: Data Bank Validation
Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.
Step 4: QA/QC Process
After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.
Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:
This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
