“One of the primary growth drivers for this market is the Large Volume Demand from the Aftermarket,” says a senior analyst for Industrials at Technavio.

The large volume demand from the aftermarket will be a significant factor driving the growth of the industrial synchronous belt drives market. Unexpected application conditions, installation errors, or the use of components that are not suitable for the operational requirements can result in faster deterioration of synchronous belt drives. The inappropriate use of drives or the improper selection of synchronous belt drives may also reduce the life of these belts. Moreover, these types of belts are often subjected to severe environmental conditions and high temperatures which may cause back cracking of the synchronous belt drive. Hence, periodic maintenance of synchronous belt drives is necessary to minimize the problems associated with the commissioning of these belt drives. End-users usually prefer to replace these belt drives as they are relatively inexpensive. The periodic maintenance activities and continuous replacement of installed drives the growth of the market.

As the markets recover Technavio expects the industrial synchronous belt drive market size to grow by USD 488.87 million during the period 2020-2024.
