The top three revenue contributing end-user segments are discussed below:

Construction, mining, and material handling equipment

In 2015, the construction, mining, and material handling equipment accounted for a revenue of around USD8 billion in the global industrial gearbox market. Among the various end-users, construction, mining, and material handling equipment capture almost half the share of the gearbox market. The increasing mining activities in the US and Brazil are leading to the extensive use of main metals like copper in the equipment as well as the manufacturing markets.

Rising disposable income in emerging countries such as China, India, and Indonesia is compelling people to shift from rural to urban areas. Improved infrastructural spending in countries such as China and India will create the demand for construction equipment, leading to further development. The growing demand from major end-users such as construction, will boost the global industrial gearbox market,” says Anju Ajaykumar, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on engineering tools.

Wind energy industry

Gearboxes are an important component of wind turbines as they are used for connecting the low-speed shaft to the high-speed shaft and increasing the rotation speed. New and replacement installations are the two key sections of the global wind turbine gearbox market. New annual installations rely on the annual installed capacity of wind turbines, whereas replacement installations depend on the annual installed capacity of wind turbines that are already in existence. The upsurge in demand for power and the stress on clean energy generation have resulted in further spending on wind energy generation. China emerged as a leading player in the industry, with more countries looking to the industry as a better source of producing clean power.

Automotive industry

It is expected that the automotive industry will show a steady demand during the forecast period. Easy availability of loans with reduced interest rates, low fuel prices, and constant demand led to the growth of the industry. Several large automobile manufacturers have seen a steady growth and are witnessing tight competition in the luxury vehicle segment in the US market. China has emerged as the leading player in the first quarter of 2016, followed by the US. The US is likely to dominate the industry during the forecast period by making vehicles affordable to many more middle-class people. The upsurge in automotive sales will have a positive influence in the gearbox industry.
