The global Precision Gearbox market size is expected to be worth around US$ 4.97 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.
The global Precision Gearbox market size was valued at US$ 2.49 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 9.3% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.
The novel coronavirus pandemic along with the possibility of the occurrence of future pandemics has accelerated the implementation and development of automation technologies. Automation minimizes the degree of manual operation and ensures minimum human intervention, which, in turn, is expected to benefit sparsely populated regions or countries with a less skilled labor force. Therefore, the demand for such automated machines and systems is likely to have a positive impact on market growth over the coming years.
Improved capabilities of robots and production flexibility offered by them are anticipated to attract a wide range of labor-intensive countries, such as India, to invest in automation technologies, thereby creating opportunities for precision gearbox manufacturers over the coming years. Robotics offers several benefits including higher throughput rates, greater precision & consistency, and minimization of scrap & waste. These benefits have encouraged a wide range of industries, such as food & beverage, medical, packaging, and materials handling, to incorporate industrial robots, which, in turn, has increased the product demand in recent years.
The in-line segment accounted for the largest market share of more than 52% in 2020 and is expected to register a steady CAGR over the forecast period owing to lower backlash and higher torque output of these products than right-angle gearheads. In addition, in-line gearheads are economical and can withstand extreme temperatures and harsh washdowns.
In-line gears offer high energy savings, low noise, low vibration, and high overload capacity. These gearboxes are usually used in servo applications; however, they can be easily integrated into existing drive trains as well. However, they are bulky and expensive to install for longer distances because of their stiffness and thickness and need to be grounded to limit interference.
The right-angle segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR from 2020 to 2027. These gears are often used for applications that require the driven equipment to be closer to the driving equipment. These are usually used in crushing or mixing applications, wherein the gear drive is mounted below or above the equipment.
The planetary gearboxes segment led the global market in 2020 and accounted for a revenue share of over 69%. The segment is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period, compact size, high power density, modular arrangements, high efficiency, 9:1 ratio per stage, low backlash, and longer gear life of these products. The planetary gearboxes have applications in machine tools, cranes, and lifts. Bevel gearboxes are used in power plants, automotive, and steel plant industries on account of the ease of changing the operating angle by increasing or decreasing the ratio of teeth between the driven wheels and drive. Helical gearboxes provide smooth and quiet operations and are prominently used in cutters, elevators, and industrial equipment that are used in the oil industry.
Helical gearboxes can transmit power and motion between both right-angle and parallel shafts. In addition, they are ideal for high-load applications as their load is distributed across several teeth resulting in less wear. Spur gears are the simplest form of precision gears and are highly reliable and offer a constant velocity ratio. They are generally used in applications that require torque multiplication and speed reduction. Moreover, they are more efficient compared to helical gears as they can easily be used to transmit a large amount of power. However, they cannot transfer power between non-parallel shafts and cannot be used for power transmission over long distances.
Robotics was the largest application segment in 2020 and accounted for a revenue share of over 20%. Robotics offers several benefits including higher throughput rates, greater precision & consistency, and minimization of scrap & waste. These benefits have encouraged a wide range of industries such as food & beverage, medical, packaging, and materials handling to incorporate industrial robots, which, in turn, has increased the demand for precision gearbox in recent years.
Pick and place robots are widely utilized in various industries owing to their ability to speed up the process of picking up objects and placing them in new locations, thereby increasing the production rates. Moreover, they offer flexibility as their arms can be replaced & positioned for different jobs and the systems can be reprogrammed accordingly. The rising demand for automated assembly lines is expected to fuel market growth over the coming years.
The packaging application is also estimated to register a significant growth rate from 2020 to 2027. Several complex processes take place on the packaging lines. For instance, on a bottling line, multiple processes, such as filling, capping, and labeling takes place and requires a high level of precision, reliability, and dynamics. Thus, precision gearboxes play an important role in carrying out these complex processes, which is likely to augment their utilization in the packaging machinery industry over the forecast period.
Asia Pacific was the largest regional market in 2020 and held over 42% of the total revenue share. The cost of both computer numerical controllers and robots has declined significantly in the last 10 years, which has led to a shorter payback time for the manufacturing equipment. The labor costs in Asia Pacific have been increasing at a rate of 10 to 15% over the past decade, which has led to an increase in the number of manufacturing companies opting for automation, resulting in an increased demand for precision gearboxes in recent years.
The labor cost increase in China has been severe, where a shortage of labor is causing difficulties for labor-intensive industries. As a result, companies are automating their production lines to cope up with the shortage of skilled laborers. The rising adoption of automation in the industrial sector in developed economies is also expected to create opportunities for market players over the forecast period.
Rising investments across industries to decrease production costs are expected to boost the adoption of industrial robots. In addition, improved capabilities of robots, reinforcing safety increase, decreasing prices, and production flexibility offered by robots are anticipated to attract several labor-intensive countries, such as India, to invest in automation technologies, thereby creating opportunities for product manufacturers over the coming years.
