Ball bearings and taper roller bearings are the two bearing types often used in passenger automobiles. Additionally, they change based on the application and load. The heavy demands placed on a wheel hubs car are growing due to expanding transit volumes, improved performance, and altered driving habits.

On a different dimension, as automated driving systems are entirely controlled by sensors, there is a strong demand for automotive wheel bearing in this industry as well. As ball thrust bearings are often employed for low speed, non-precision applications, they are needed for mostly in agriculture and transport vehicles as typically these run comparatively at low speeds in the fields.

This type of automotive ball bearings support axial stresses in both directions when used in back-to-back pairs. The need for tapered roller bearings is also anticipated to increase more in the next years as the automotive sector is anticipated to expand.

Competitive Landscape for the Global Automotive Wheel Bearing Aftermarket

Some of the well-known contact automotive wheel bearing aftermarket players are Federal – Mogul Corporation (Tennenco Inc.), Schaeffler AG, Mahle GmbH, Continental AG, The Timken Company, NSK Ltd., JTEKT Corp, NTN Corporation, Rheinmetall AG, NRB Bearings Ltd., Nachi – Fujikoshi Corp., MinebeaMitsumi Inc., and Wafangdian Bearing Group Corporation among others.

As the automotive market is well developed in almost all parts of the world so the automotive wheel bearing market is highly fragmented. Thus mergers and acquisitions are a very common feature in this sector. For instance, Drake Manufacturing Services. Co. LLC was bought by CW Bearings USA, Inc. in the year 2017. The business was able to join the Machine Tools sector thanks to the purchase.

Shortly after, the global market saw the acquisition of ABC Bearings Ltd., an Indian manufacturer of conical or tappered, circular or round roller bearings as well as slewing rings, by Timken India Ltd, which is a division of The Timken Company.
