Each market segment provides varying levels of growth opportunities and competitive landscapes. Each segment requires different product portfolios and competencies to be successful. The gearbox market is impacted by the penetration of gear-less drive technology and by the increasing preference for the bevel gear system over the worm gear system. Market participants need to understand which segments will be impacted by these major trends. Mega Trends such as innovating to zero and green energy are expected to increase revenue from the gearbox and gear motor market. This report covers market size and forecasts for 16 end-user segments and 4 major geographic regions for 4 major gear technologies across 5 gear power ratings. Also covered in the report are the impact of the product trends and Mega Trends. North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), Asia-Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the World (RoW) are the 4 regional segments. Helical gearbox, helical gear motor, bevel gearbox, bevel gear motor, planetary gearbox, planetary gear motor, worm gearbox, and worm gear motor are the product segments by gear technology. Investments into discrete manufacturing sectors such as packaging, plastics, automotive, and unit material handling are expected to create sales opportunities for certain types of gearboxes and gear motors. 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 by region. The major companies covered in the report are SEW Eurodrive, Siemens AG, Sumitomo Heavy Industries, China High Speed Power Transmission, Rexnord Corporation, Bonfiglioli Riduttori S.P.A, Lenze, Nord Drivesystems, ABB Baldor, David Brown Santasalo, Nabtesco Corporation, and Rossi Group. Key Questions Answered in the Report: What is the size of the global gearbox and gear motor market? How is the market revenue expected to grow during the forecast period? How is the revenue split between different end-user segments across geographic regions and product segments? Which segments are the fastest growing segments and which segments offer significant growth potential for gearbox and gear motor manufacturers in 2017? Which product segments should manufacturers focus on to take advantage of the rising opportunities? Who are the major competitors in the global market and in the different regional markets? What will be the impact of gearless drive technology on gearbox and gear motor sales?

Digitisation is gradually penetrating the manufacturing sector in order to produce cheaper and better consumer products. At times of uncertain and volatile economic conditions, manufacturers are seeking competitive advantages by modernising and upgrading their production methods. Industrialised nations such as Germany have paved the way forward in digitising their manufacturing capabilities through Industrie 4.0 or in broader terms, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). This manufacturing transformation is rapidly catching on in Asia-Pacific with Japan, South Korea, and Singapore leading the way. Governments in APAC are looking to IIoT as a viable way to create sustainable manufacturing growth and affirm their role in the global supply chain. However, not all countries in APAC are ready for IIoT. In this study, Frost & Sullivan investigates the role of governments in promoting IIoT in APAC through initiatives, action plans, and funding schemes. As the manufacturing economies in APAC gradually embrace the fourth industrial revolution, bridging the gaps in infrastructure capacity is a prominent factor. Profiles of 8 export-intensive economies in APAC and their IIoT-readiness ranking are provided. The latter is a Frost & Sullivan methodology that utilises key economic indicators to objectively rank the Top 8 IIoT-ready countries in APAC. Specifically, this report addresses the following points: How are governments supporting Industrial Internet of Things initiatives? Which government agencies are contributing towards the development and deployment of the Industrial Internet of Things? How much funding is available to manufacturers seeking assistance from public institutions? Which countries in Asia-Pacific are ready to implement Industrial Internet of Things solutions? What are the necessary foundations for the implementation of Industrial Internet of Things solutions? How will the Industrial Internet of Things affect the workforce and what are the government s responses to this? The outcome of this research pinpoints these strategic imperatives for growth: IIoT adoption may lead to implementation of Smart Cities initiatives Solution providers should position themselves to address this opportunity Spending on IIoT solutions in emerging economies is likely to come from government agencies instead of the private sector Marketing and business development campaigns should be appropriately aligned. IIoT solutions need to be tailored Governments need to wholeheartedly follow through on their industrial digitisation plans, otherwise any prior investments will be futile Whilst the fourth industrial revolution is beginning to take shape, government agencies should keep abreast with innovative developments and prepare for the next paradigm shift Wed, 5 Jul 2017 00:00:00 +0100
