Bearings Procurement Cost and Supplier Intelligence

Supply chain disruption due to the Russia-Ukraine war has led to a surge in the prices of commodities in most countries. In 2022, due to the wake of the 15% export levy imposed by the Indian government, steel prices followed an upward trend and grew by 40% to reach USD 960 in the Indian markets. With the surge in demand for luxury cars and industrialization, the EU being the major producer, accounted for major imports and export of ball and roller bearing around the world. In 2021, the EU surged the export of bearings by 10% from the previous year reaching USD 12.2 billion. This resulted in an increase in the price of bearings export by 6.6% compared to 2020, reaching USD 18,157 per ton. A surge in the prices of raw materials and export duty has significantly caused a hike in the prices of the category.

Sourcing of the category involves procurement of raw materials and category imports from various countries. China accounts for the top exporter of ball bearings with 23% of world exports. Strategies such as advanced technology, smart bearings, quality standards, and sustainability criteria are allowing companies to lead in the market. Various industrial institutes and organizations, including the Association of Chinese Bearing Industry, have provided recommendations and ideas to advance bearing technology and processing machinery like the use of CNC machining centers, using high-precision machine tools, auxiliary equipment for automatic line connection, and high-speed electric spindles.
