RALEIGH, North Carolina, October 17, 2019 - The global market for gearboxes is currently estimated to be worth $23.88 billion and for crushers is estimated to be $6.6 billion, according to Beroe Inc., a procurement intelligence firm. The market for gearboxes is driven by the growth of emerging nations and recovery of the US market, while the market for crushers is driven by an increase in metals output and growing industrialization.
High market maturity regions for gearboxes are North America, Europe, and Asia with Africa as a medium/low market maturity region. Asia accounts for 46 percent of the market with a market worth of $9.85 billion, growing at a rate of 3-5 percent. For crushers, high market maturity regions are North America, Europe, and Asia, with South America and Africa being medium/low market maturity regions.

The growth in the downstream industries, such as mining, construction, food processing, and energy sector is expected to drive the growth of the gearboxes market, however, an uncertain financial environment poses a real threat. An increase in urbanization and mining activities act as major drivers for the crushers market, but the reduction in mineral output from mines and current mining industry slowdown are adversely impacting the crushers market.
The planetary gearbox is the fastest-growing among industrial gearbox category offering a host of benefits. Major applications and complex machines in the mining and power generation sector require larger precision gearboxes, which can run at the highest efficiency level. Mining industries extensively use jaw and cone crushers, where impact crushers are more popularly used for soft ores for the aggregates industry, such as stone, recycled concrete, and asphalt products.
The research methodology adopted for the report included:
Raw materials are the biggest cost components in the gearboxes and crushers markets, constituting 40–60 percent of the cost of production. For gearboxes steel rods and forgings account for 40 percent of costs and labor for 20–25 percent. For crushers, HRC Steel constitutes 48–53 percent of costs and electricity for 18-22 percent. To offset the large initial investment and sudden requirement, major companies sometimes indulge in rental agreements with the suppliers.
