Worldwide Wind Turbine Bearings Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, 2018-2019 & 2025 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

April 8, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 8, 2019--The “Wind Turbine Bearings: Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2018 to 2025” report from Wintergreen Research, Inc has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global wind turbine bearing market is expected to be $10.6 billion in 2025 driven by the availability and cost effectiveness of new, stronger, more efficient bearings.

Next generation bearings permit wind turbines to product more power, operate in a less expensive manner, and last longer before bearing replacement. The adoption of widespread use of new bearings makes the turbine devices an optimized choice for renewable energy generation.

The vendors in the wind bearings industry have invested in high-quality technology and processes to develop leading-edge wind turbine capability a being implemented in the on shore and offshore sites. There are a number of different bearing designs that can be found in the gearbox of a wind turbine, but most often, various combinations of CRBs, TRBs, and ball bearings are used.

If the bearings are bigger, the bearings last longer but making the bearings larger increases friction, which decreases turbine efficiency. Current bearings have a replacement cost that is too high. What we need is a quantum leap in bearing technology - bearing materials which are at least ten times tougher than current materials are evolving.

Wind turbine bearings are mission-critical devices. They function inside MW-class turbines, endure dynamic and unpredictable stresses to support movement inside the system Stress is causing untimely, expensive repairs for many wind turbines. Reliability of main shaft bearings is an issue. Recent turbine failures have been dramatic, the investigation has centered on SRBs: Self-aligning Roller Bearings. Solutions for retrofitting single self-aligning roller bearings (SRBs) in a three-point mount arrangement, including wear-resistant SRBs and a pre-loaded TRB design are in play.
