Railway Bearing is a component that is used to reduce load as well as friction between the moving or rotating parts in a train/rolling stock. Railway bearing reduces the axial as well as radial load and improve the fuel efficiency of the train. There are different types of bearings such as roller bearing, ball bearing and plain bearing that are used in various application according to the requirement. Railway Bearing are used for various purpose in both internal and external applications such as doors, transmission panel, wheels, etc. Moreover, now a days, the demand for the high speed trains, metro trains and special trains which directly affect the growth of railway bearing market.

Railway Bearing Market: Dynamics

Growing population in metropolitan areas and increasing number of office workers, particularly in developing countries, are projected to drive the global railway industry during the forecast period. Railways are an integral part of the public transportation system across the globe and will play a key role in future due to increasing public density, urbanization and changing travel behaviour across the world. These factors are expected to boost the growth of the railway bearing market over the forecast period. In urban economies, governments are focusing on investing hefty money to promote the introduction of large-scale transport infrastructure, such as high-speed rails and bullet trains, to make passenger transport faster. Government investments on railways will directly increase the demand for railway bearings and will boost the growth of global railway bearing market. Moreover, the European and Japanese railway networks use solar-powered rails in fix railway routes. The European government has planned to install solar PV array in 15% of the train network across East Sussex, Kent and West Sussex. The aim of this plan is to reduce the consumption of electricity in these particular cities. Increasing demand for new solar powered trains is anticipated to fuel the demand for railway bearing market during the forecast period
