Top 10 bearing manufacturers in China

As we all know, more than 70% of the world bearing market share is shared by the top ten multinational bearing group companies. Among them, the United States, which accounts for 23% of the global market, 21% of the European Union, and 19% of Japan, are basically dominated by five companies such as Japan’s NSK, Sweden’s SKF, Germany’s FAG, and the United States Timken. At the same time, the high-end market of the world’s bearing industry is monopolized by the above-mentioned enterprises, while the middle and low-end market is mainly concentrated in China.

Chinese bearings are favored by foreign markets because of their high quality and low price. At present, Chinese bearings are exported to the United States, Europe, South America, India, the Middle East, Africa, Russia and other major countries and regions. Different market groups. Relatively speaking, many importers don’t have a deep understanding of Chinese bearings. Let’s talk about the Top 10 bearing manufacturers in China first.
