LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio announced the top five leading suppliers in its most recent report on the global ball bearing market to 2020. The research report also lists eight other major suppliers that are expected to affect the market during the forecast period.

The report believes that the global ball bearing market is a mature market characterized by a small number of manufacturers occupying a larger market share. The efficiency of ball bearings is the main area of ​​concern for manufacturers, because it is the main means of upgrading products in the market. Market capital is highly intensive and asset turnover rate is low. It is difficult for new players to enter the market. Cartelization is a major challenge for the market.

"In order to limit any new competition, major suppliers participate in cartels to avoid pushing down each other's prices, thereby maintaining the stability of existing supplies. The threat from counterfeit products is another key challenge facing suppliers," Technavio's chief tools and components Research analyst Anju Ajaykumar said.

Suppliers in this market should pay more attention to the entry of counterfeit products, especially into the Asia-Pacific region. Companies such as SKF are launching consumer awareness programs to educate consumers and retailers about counterfeit ball bearings.
