A sheave bearing is designed and manufactured with ball bearing on the outer ring and pulley with raceway on its outer surface. They are designed for use in general industrial machines which run under heavy loads and at low speed. There are two broad categories of sheave bearings, namely, open type and shielded type. Open ring comes without snap ring. Shielded type sheave bearings comes with and without a snap ring. A snap ring is a fastener that is designed to hold components. A snap ring is also known as retaining ring. Sheave bearings help in increasing the speed of equipment. Design and type of sheave bearings vary based on many parameters, namely, static load ratings, sealing capability, lubrication used, axial location, operating temperature, and application. Sheave bearings are mainly used in rope sheaves. Moreover, it can be used in industries such as automotive, electric, heavy machineries, medical, aerospace, and mechanical engineering. The sheave bearings market is expected to grow rapidly due to increasing use of sheave bearings in the manufacturing industry. In addition, increasing implementation of total productive maintenance and good practices in different industries is anticipated to drive the global sheave bearings market during the forecast period. End-users of sheave bearings demand safety and high efficiency and reliability.

Increase in demand for sheave bearings with user-friendly setup and installation, improved axial load bearing capacity, optimized running, and reduced maintenance is expected to drive the global sheave bearings market during the forecast period. Moreover, rise in automation processes particularly in the manufacturing industry is expected to propel the sheave bearing market in the near future. In addition, the growing automobile sector and aerospace industry is anticipated to drive the growth of the sheave bearings market during the forecast period. Additionally, several advantages of sheave bearings such as low maintenance cost and reduced concentration of stress generated during the running operations are expected to drive the market in the coming years. However, high cost of raw materials used in sheave bearings are projected to restrain the growth of the sheave bearings market in the next few years. Nevertheless, growing demand for improved, reliable products with new technologies is expected to create significant opportunities for the global sheave bearings market.
