Growing Automobile Production & Sales Drives the Gears, Drives and Speed Changers Market, According to a New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) January 30, 2015

Follow us on LinkedIn Transmission systems are omnipresent in the world of mechanical engineering. Gears, drives, and speed changers are critical elements in virtually every mechanical system that involves force and movement. The increase in the use of electromechanical machinery across diverse industries across the globe is therefore the single most important factor driving growth in the market. Market development, over the decades, has been guided by electrification of machine tools and rapid industrialization. With the proliferation of CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machines, the importance of gears, drives, and speed changers remains undiminished even today. Plant automation and developments in industrial kinetics will continue to drive demand growth in the market.

Growth in the market is also supported by the increase in the use of industrial conveyor systems in industries such as automotive, agriculture, computers, electronics, food processing, aerospace, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, bottling and canning. Recovering global manufacturing PMI and renewed activity in power generation, mining, and oil & gas, are expected to drive growth in the market. The automotive industry represents a major end-use market, with growth supported by stable automobile production and sales in developing countries. Growth in GDP, improvements in standard of living, increase in discretionary spending and expanding base of middle class population represent factors favoring the rise in per capita automobile ownership in these markets.

Growth in the military sector will benefit from the growing fleet of military aircraft. Increase in the aircraft sales and production will positively impact market opportunities for aircraft power transmission components, including gears and gear drives. Increasing investments in nuclear power plants, wind energy farms and coal fired thermal plants, against a backdrop of rising global energy demand, will help spur demand for a range of gears, drives and speed changers used in power generation equipment like turbines. Growing focus on renewable energy amidst growing concerns over fossil fuel depletion and environmental pollution is driving demand for wind turbine gears. Wind turbine gearboxes form an integral component of wind power generation equipment and increased development of onshore as well as offshore wind farms is offering robust growth opportunities for wind turbine gearboxes.

As stated by the new market research report on Gears, Drives and Speed Changers, Asia-Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing market, with a projected CAGR of 6.3% over the analysis period. Growth in the region is led by rapid industrialization, strong GDP gains, growing investments in the industrial sector, and outsourcing induced expansion of the manufacturing base in low cost Asian countries.
