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.

Key Findings:

  • The global gearbox market is fragmented with a lot of industrial participants and a few major players consolidating half the market. European manufacturers lead in this sector with a market share of around 35 percent.
  • The global crushers market is fragmented with regional players offering cost-effective solutions. Metso, Terex, Sandvik, Atlas Copco cumulatively constitute approximately 30 percent of the market. Product innovation, acquisitions, and global reach are their key strengths.
  • The barrier to new entrants is high in the global gearboxes and crushers market as both the products require high capital investment to set up the production facility and require skilled labor. 
  • For gearboxes and crushers, most of the BCCS suppliers accept 30 percent payment in advance and remaining prior to the delivery of equipment from the suppliers' side. Some of the suppliers also accept payment with a 100 percent Letter of Credit (LC) at sight.
  • Standard gearboxes are usually sold to distributors at listed prices and customers can procure these gearboxes directly. For crushers, buyers have the option of buying from manufacturers directly or through dealers. 

The research methodology adopted for the report included:

  • Experts with twenty years of domain experience
  • Interaction with buyers
  • Inputs from supply chain partners

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.
