Industrial Gearbox Industry- Key Players, Share, Trend, Applications, Forecast- 2030

An Industrial Gearbox is an enclosed system that transmits energy from one device to another output device. Industrial gearbox transmits the speed, torque, and other attributes to convert energy into useable form. The output shaft of a gearbox revolves at a slower rate than the input shaft. The reduction in speed provides a mechanical advantage as it increases the torque for mine hoisters, ship unloaders, cranes, and other machines within industrial operations. Some of the types of industrial gearboxes are helical, bevel, planetary, and spur.

The growth in industrial automation in Europe and rapid growth of the construction industry in developing nations are expected to drive the Industrial Gearbox Industry during the forecast period. The global population has been growing since the past few decades and is expected to continue growing during the forecast period. The global trends of digitalization and automation in the manufacturing has further enabled the growth of the markets for industrial gearbox. Globally, Europe leads in terms of automation and technological development for manufacturing and robotics. As per the Germany Trade & Invest, an economic development agency, the automotive industry has the highest use of industrial robots in Germany. According to the Mechanical Engineering Industry Association, in the year 2017, the total robotics and automation turnover in Germany accounted for approximately USD 16.35 billion. Additionally, the yearly shipments of multipurpose industrial robots have also increased in the leading European countries. According to the Germany Trade & Invest, in the year 2016, the machinery and equipment companies invested approximately USD 6.30 billion in research and development activities in Germany. Such investments are expected to raise industrial automation in the country and in the region. Industrial gearboxes form an important aspect of industrial automation as they offer flexibility, reliability, speed, and movement in various applications, such as lifting systems, conveyors, feeder screws, and machine tools. Furthermore, countries such as India and China are substantially investing in infrastructure development and are expected to remain the highest investing countries during the forecast period. According to the India Brand Equity Foundation, India will need to invest USD 777.30 billion, approximately, in infrastructure by 2022 for sustainable development. Moreover, many commercial entities in the country are investing in developing infrastructure, which would boost the growth of the construction industry. For instance, in June 2018, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (China) invested USD 200 million in the National Investment & Infrastructure Fund (India). The investments were aimed at developing infrastructure in the country. Industrial gearboxes form an important aspect of the construction industry, as they are useful in driving conveyors, crushers, plastic extruders. Such factors are expected to lead to the demand for industrial gearboxes between 2019 and 2024.

Market Research Analysis

In terms of region, the market is segmented as Europe, Asia-Pacific, North America, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. North America dominates the global industrial gearbox market. The growth in industrial automation in Europe and the rapid growth of the construction industry in developing nations are expected to drive the industrial gearbox market in the region.   

Asia-Pacific is one of the largest markets for industrial gearbox market in the world. As per the International Renewable Energy Agency, in 2017, the region accounted for almost two-thirds of the global renewable generating capacity. The region’s renewable energy capacity doubled over the past five years, reaching nearly 9,168 GW in 2017. China and India had the highest contribution in the region’s total renewable energy generation capacity. In Japan, according to Bloomberg New Energy Finance, in 2017, the total new investments in clean energy in Japan was approximately USD 23.40 billion. The clean energy investment includes renewable energy segments such as solar and wind. The increasing investments in wind power and power generation through renewable sources will boost the installation of industrial gearboxes to fulfil the energy demand in Japan. As per the India Brand Equity Foundation, in 2018, the total gross value added by agriculture, forestry, and fishing was approximately USD 284.62 billion. Additionally, the Government of India (GoI) is also taking various initiatives to promote the growth of the agricultural industry. For instance, the GoI started a scheme, Transport and Marketing Assistance (TMA), to provide financial assistance to transport and marketing of agricultural products to increase agricultural exports. Industrial gearbox in agricultural equipment and machines are required to provide the required speed and torque. Various applications in which industrial gearboxes are used in the agriculture industry are grain conveyors, sprayers, and seeders Such factors are expected to increase the demand for industrial gearbox between 2019 and 2024.
