This study examines the various product segments within the pneumatic equipment market such as valves, actuators, FRLs, fittings, and others and splits the market revenue across various end-user industries. Market shares of the global market participants are provided for the base year. Regional analyses are provided for North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Asia-Pacific (APAC), and the Rest of the World (ROW). This study examines the key growth drivers, restraints, product segments, and end-user industries in each region, and provides forecasts by end-user industry, product segments, and individual regions. In this research service, Frost & Sullivan's analysts examine the following product segments: Pneumatic Valves - include direct solenoid, solenoid pilot, air pilot, and manual/mechanical valves. Pneumatic Actuators - include National Fluid Power Association (NFPA), Non-repairable, Compact, International Standards Organization (ISO) / Verband Deutscher Machinen-und Anlagenbau (VDMA), Rodless, Rotary, Slides, rod-thrusters, and specialty actuators. Pneumatic FRLs - include air preparation equipment that is customized based according to the end user. Pneumatic Fittings - include component, piping or tubing part of pneumatic equipment that can attach or connect larger parts. Pneumatic Others - include pneumatic grippers, positioners, pneumatic guns and pneumatic nozzles. Rising investments in Asia-Pacific, focus on energy efficiency, and increased penetration of IIoT are set to drive market growth. Asia-Pacific, home to two fastest growing major economies in the world, has emerged as the key growth engine for this market due to the rising wealth in the region and the growth of the manufacturing sector. Increasing demand for industrial automation in key end-user industries such as automotive, food processing and packaging, chemicals, plastics, and oil, material handling, and semiconductors and electronics, as well as the lifesciences industry, is anticipated to boost the growth of the pneumatic equipment market, on account of their simple design, easy maintenance and low purchase costs. However, commoditization of the product increases the price pressure, affecting the profit margins of the market participants, especially in the face of increased competition from low-cost Asian manufacturers. On the other hand, increased focus on energy-efficient products is expected to sustain market growth, especially in developed markets such as North America and Europe. This is also complemented by the increasing penetration of IIoT across the manufacturing sectors, which is expected to steady the demand for pneumatic equipment over the forecast period and sustain competition from competing technologies (e.g., electric actuation solutions). While increased focus on total cost of ownership and reduced energy consumption are expected to result in increased substitution of pneumatic systems with electrical systems in the long term, the high cost of electric systems, practical limitations in hazardous environments, and the complexity involved in the conversion of brownfield facilities are expected to slow down this trend.

Tue, 7 Nov 2017 00:00:00 +0000 European Bearings Market, Forecast to 2021 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=MD42-01-00-00-00 http://www.frost.com/prod/servlet/sublib/display-report.do?id=MD42-01-00-00-00 The research provides the European bearings market size estimate for 2016, historic data from 2013 to 2015 and provides market forecast from 2017 to 2021. Market revenue is provided in $ million for 2 product segments, 8 end-user segments and 9 regional segments in Europe. Product technology include Ball bearings, Roller bearings, cylindrical roller bearings, Tapered roller bearings, Spherical roller bearings and Needle roller bearings. Regions include Germany, France, Italy, the United Kingdom, Scandinavia, Benelux, Iberia, Rest of Western Europe, Central and Eastern Europe. End users include: industrial (energy, heavy industries, general manufacturing, others) and mobile (automobile, aerospace and defence, off-highway and construction equipment, and railway). The report gives detailed information on the revenues and growth rates of these end-user segments across regions. Competitor analyses and market shares for 2016 have been provided. The major companies covered in the report are SKF, Schaeffler AG, NSK Ltd, NTN-SNR, The Timken Company, JTEKT Corporation, Nachi Europe GmbH, Kinex Bearings and Fersa Bearings. The European bearings market is dominated by 6 major global brands that have significant presence across all major end-user segments and regional segments.The bearings market is likely to be positively impacted by increasing demand for sophisticated bearings. In general, the demand for bearings with longer service life, higher efficiency and lower maintenance requirements is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period. On the other hand, higher adoption of smart bearings is expected to reduce the replacement frequency of bearings, as smart bearings will be replaced on the basis of the actual condition of the bearing rather than on a predetermined replacement schedule. This trend is expected to reduce the growth in demand. The research methodology is a combination of primary and secondary research. Secondary research involves desk-based research. Primary research involves interaction with market participants and getting their perspective and feedback on our analysis. Key Questions Answered in the Report: Is the European bearings market growing? How long will it continue to grow, and at what rate? What is the impact of smart bearings on bearing replacement frequency? What new opportunities await bearing manufacturers due to the adoption of smart bearings? What are the major purchasing criteria considered by bearing customers in Europe? How does the suppliers brand influence the purchasing decision? What are the threats this market is likely to encounter? What are the factors that may drive the market? How is the demand for rolling element bearings distributed across the various end-user segments and regions within Europe?
