Market driver: adoption of industrial automation
The growth in technology over the past few decades is driving advances in automation, encouraging the adoption of robots and industrial automation. The use of automation across all industrial sectors across the globe is increasing. The rate of adoption of automation is particularly high in the manufacturing sector. This is anticipated to become a driving force for the industrial gearbox market during the forecast period. Robots and automation equipment are usually used in high-speed, repetitive tasks in manufacturing and other industries. The need to manufacture robots, which have a higher level of sophistication and scope of application, has led to research work on the development of high precision gearboxes.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for engineering tools research, “A major factor contributing to the increasing adoption of automation is the rise in labor costs and the focus on abolishing production inefficiencies and reducing the costs. The cost of labor has been steadily increasing worldwide because of the economic growth in most countries. The economic growth in developing countries is higher than that in developed countries.”

Market trend: decline in the cost of gearboxes used in wind power generation
The growth in wind power generation capacity over the past few decades has been amplified by the decline in the cost of the components used in wind turbines, including the cost of gearboxes. The cost of wind turbine gearboxes has decreased considerably over the years. This is because of the enhancements in designs, optimization in raw material sourcing, entry of new players into the market, and larger economies of scale. The average cost of a gearbox unit has been declining due to the improvements in gearbox technology and reduction in manufacturing costs. The growing trend of vertical integration of gearbox manufacturing by wind turbine suppliers is also assisting the cause.
Market challenge: growing competition from direct drive systems
The direct drive systems have emerged as an ideal replacement for geared drive systems in several end-use applications over the past decade. The characteristics of direct drive systems make them less complex in design and easier to operate and maintain. This is a major factor driving the adoption of these systems in heavy-duty applications such as wind power generation and industrial automation.
