Increase in renewable power generation: a major market driver
Increase in renewable power generation is one of the major factors driving the global rigid sleeve couplings market. The wind energy sector is the key end-user of rigid sleeve couplings. Wind turbines use couplings to provide interconnection between turbines and generators. The aligned turbines require rigid couplings to connect the turbine and the shafts in a wind turbine assembly.
According to Kalle Deepak, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on automation, “The rise in concerns about environmental pollution and global warming, has led governments around the world to increase investment in renewable power sources such as wind energy. This increase in investments in wind energy will drive new turbine installations and expansion of existing wind farms, which will drive the demand for rigid sleeve couplings.”

EMEA: largest rigid sleeve couplings market
Technavio researchers anticipate high growth for the global rigid sleeve couplings market in EMEA. Contribution from countries such as Germany, Italy, and the UK had underpinned the regional dominance of EMEA in the global market in 2016. In Europe, electricity production from renewable sources has been on the rise. The UK produced more power from solar, wind, and nuclear sources combined than from gas and coal in 2016. Rigid sleeve couplings are used in the mining industry due to high-pressure application requirement to extract minerals. Majority of the demand for rigid sleeve couplings, in the mining industry, will originate from Africa.
Competitive vendor landscape
The global rigid sleeve couplings market is witnessing a stable growth with the presence of a good number of established vendors. The market is expected to witness the entry of new vendors owing to the increasing demand for rigid sleeve couplings. The growing trend for improved energy efficiency in shafts will drive the demand for rigid sleeve couplings, thus making the market attractive for new vendors. Altra Industrial Motion, Regal Beloit, Rexnord, Ruland, and Timken are the key vendors in the market.
