A GCiS Limited Publication Study Published In November, 2010

China's market for ball bearings grew by around 16% in 2009, and is set to continue expanding due to derived demand from key end user markets such as automotives and machinery & machine tools. The market currently consists of a large number of suppliers, and this is likely to increase as more domestic suppliers enter the market due to the promise of a big market as well as lower start up costs for less technology intensive product such as deep groove bearings. Despite a large market size and fairly high growth, the market faces challenges in the form of a lack of regulation and uneven enforcement, leading to a less stable market environment. Because of this, suppliers have found it difficult to predict market trends and to plan accordingly.

This GCiS market study draws on a three month, in-depth primary survey of around 90 of the market's supply side and channel players. A detailed understanding of deep groove, angular contact thrust, self aligned and insert ball bearings is provided by five industry segments across China. Five-year projections provided in the study will be indispensible to anyone looking to map out the course of this large market. This report is essential reading for any professional needing accurate and detailed strategic information of this market.
