Market Dynamics

Demand for precision ball screws is on the rise in semiconductor, aviation & aerospace, and medical diagnostic equipment industries, owing to their high load bearing capacity, less friction, precision, and high positional accuracy; the paramount necessity of the above mentioned industries. In recent years, the growth of the semiconductor industry has been immense owing to the growing popularity of AI, IoT, Industry 4.0, and others. Hence, growth in semiconductor, aviation & aerospace, and medical diagnostic equipment industries is expected to drive precision ball screw market growth during forecast period. developing nations such as India are witnessing an increase in investments in semiconductors manufacturing industries. For instance, in June 2022, the Indian government announced that it will spend $30 billion to restructure its IT industry and build up a semiconductor supply chain.

According to Gourangalal Das, director-general of the India-Taipei Association, the South Asian country's de-facto embassy in Taipei, the investment initiative is aimed to boost local production of semiconductors, displays, advanced chemicals, networking and telecom equipment, as well as batteries and electronics. All such factors are fueling the growth of semiconductor manufacturing; thereby, positively influencing the semiconductor production equipment market, eventually having a positive impact on the precision ball screw market.

Moreover, the medical industry is surging rapidly, for example, according to the Indian Brand Equity Foundation, the medical device industry is expected to grow to a value of $50 billion by 2030. A similar trend can be seen in other rapidly growing parts of the world. The surge in medical diagnostics industry is expected to accelerate the precision ball screw market. These medical diagnostics equipment need precisely controlled movements for efficient operations, which is achieved by drive train that consist of precision ball screws. In addition, precision ball screws also find their applications in high-tech medical equipment such as dental milling machines, surgical robots, and robotic endoscopy equipment. This makes precision ball screws a critical component in the healthcare industry.

However, fluctuation in prices of raw materials used for manufacturing precision ball screws is anticipated to restrain the market growth. Precision ball screws are generally made up of carbon steel, alloy steel, and stainless steel. Price of steel often fluctuates, owing to different government taxes and demand and supply. In addition, fluctuations in foreign currencies affect price of steel, which impacts the profit margin of suppliers. For instance, in February 2020, ministry of steel of Indian government released a report, as per the report in February 2020, steel exports of India declined by 17.8% as compared to January 2020, owing to hike in domestic prices. In the early 2023 also, the price of steel fluctuated immensely. These kinds of scenarios are expected to restrain growth of the precision ball screw market during the forecast period. In addition, trade tariffs also hinder the market growth.

Moreover, technological advancements and innovations in precision ball screw industry is a major precision ball screw market opportunity for growth of the marjor players in the precision ball screw market. International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and Deutsches Institut für Normung (DIN) have imposed accuracy standards for precision ball screws for positional and transport applications. Lead accuracy is of utmost importance in the medical field. This has created opportunities for players in the market to develop precision ball screws of high lead accuracy.

For instance, MPS Microsystems based in Germany offers a range of high precision ball screws for positioning less than 5 µm. In addition, technological advancements such as industrial robots, 3D printing, and factory automation also create opportunity for innovations in precision ball screw products, which is anticipated to accelerate growth of the precision ball screw market during the forecast period.

The precision ball screw market has witnessed various obstructions in its regular operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic and inflation. Earlier, the global lockdowns resulted in reduced construction activities, eventually leading to reduced demand for precision ball screw from manufacturing sector. However, COVID-19 has subsided, and the major manufacturers performed well in 2023. Contrarily, the rise in global inflation is a new major obstructing factor for the entire industry. The inflation, which is an immediate result of the Ukraine-Russia war, and a few long-term effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, have delivered volatility in the expenses incurred on raw materials used for the production of precision ball screws.

In addition, the price of oil and gas has increased extensively, and many countries, mainly, the nations in Europe, Latin America, and developing economies in Asia-Pacific have experienced intense negative effects on the manufacturing industry. However, India and China are performing relatively well. In addition, inflation is anticipated to worsen within the coming years, as the possibility of the ending of the conflict between Ukraine and Russia is much less. However, a peace agreement between Ukraine and Russia may be devised, with continued talks among the nations.
