Top 5 Vendors in the Global Off-the-Shelf Gearbox and Drives Market from 2016 to 2020: Technavio

LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global off-the-shelf gearbox and drives market report. This research report also lists 18 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

According to the report, the global off-the-shelf gearboxes and drives market hosts well-diversified international and regional vendors. Established vendors, such as Bonfiglioli, Renold, and Sumitomo Drive Technologies, generate revenue via direct and indirect sales and together contributed approximately 26%-28% of the global market share in 2015. Indirect sales are made through local representatives, certified distributors or dealers, contractors, and system integrators.

“The differences in product performance, portfolio and service offerings, applications, knowledge of integrated systems, and quality of products make the market highly competitive and volatile,” says Bharath Kanniappan, lead automation analyst from Technavio.

The report also states that off-the-shelf products are dominating engineered solutions due to distinct advantages such as proven design, easy availability, quick part replacement, and high level of product differentiation in terms of end-user applications. Established OEMs primarily focus on geographical expansion, product and service innovation, capacity expansion, and customer retention. They are reaching out to sell off-the-shelf gearboxes and drives to Southeast Asia, Africa, and South America, in addition to traditional markets such as North America, Europe, China, Japan, India, and South Korea.

Although established international vendors have a large customer base, customer retention has become a major concern for them with new entrants offering products and services at lower price. The growing adoption of off-the-shelf gearboxes and drives by various industries offers ample opportunities for smaller players to thrive in the market.
