Consumer prices rise more than expected pushed by 9.1 percent jump in gasoline has an effect on motor drive end bearing

The Labor Department reported on Tuesday that consumer prices surged in March, buoyed by a strong economic recovery and compared with a time when the COVID-19 pandemic was about to choke off the US economy.

The consumer price index rose 0.6 percent from the previous month but was up 2.6 percent from a year ago. That was the highest year-on-year increase since August 2018 and well above the 1.7 percent recorded in February.

The index is expected to gain 0.5% month-on-month and 2.5% since March 2020, according to Dow Jones estimates.

Gasoline prices were the biggest contributor to the monthly rise, surging 9.1 percent in March, accounting for about half of the overall CPI increase. Gasoline prices are up 22.5% from a year ago, part of a 13.2% increase in energy prices.

Food prices also edged up, rising 0.1% for the month and 3.5% for the year. Household food was up 3.3 percent. All six components of the government\'s grocery index rose, with meat, poultry, fish and eggs rising the most, by 5.4 percent.

Dining out was up 3.7 percent, while "limited service meals" (which include takeout, takeout and delivery) were up 6.5 percent year on year, the biggest annual increase in the survey since 1997.

Markets reacted mildly to the news, with stock futures coming off early lows but still pointing to a down start. Government bond yields were little changed.

Core CPI, which excludes volatile food and energy costs, rose 0.3 percent from the previous month and 1.6 percent from a year earlier.

While the inflation numbers look high, many economists, as well as policymakers at the US Federal Reserve, expect the rise to be temporary. There could also be a big rise in April, but that number is expected to fall as the worst months of the shutdown fall out of the data comparison.

Fed officials have said they don\'t adjust policy based on short-term jumps in inflation data. Powell told the CBS program "60 Minutes" that aired Sunday night that he does not expect a rate hike this year.

However, markets have been pricing in faster economic growth and inflation, with bond yields rising to their highest levels since before the outbreak. Economic reopening and unprecedented levels of government support are contributing to an inflationary environment.

Fed officials expect GDP to grow at about 6.5% this year, which would be the fastest pace since 1984.

Affected by Consumer prices rise more than expected pushed by 9.1 percent jump in gasoline, the motor drive end bearing market is changing rapidly. These changes are indicators of market rising. Bearings are an important part of modern machinery and equipment, and its downstream is widely used in industrial automation, high-end equipment, robotics, automobile manufacturing and other fields. In recent years, due to the decline in demand from downstream industries such as automobiles and machine tools, as well as the adjustment of industrial structure, the phase of transformation and upgrading, the phasing out of backward production capacity has changed the relationship between supply and demand.

The price of motor drive end bearing continues to be affected by some kind of factors such as market rising momentum, various opportunities and challenges. However, during the forecast period from 2022 to 2027, the global motor drive end bearing sales market is expected to continue to be above average. The growth rate will continue to increase. It is expected that In the second half of this year, the price of motor drive end bearing will increase to a certain extent.   

Due to changes in the raw material price of bearings rising, consumer demand, import and export conditions, and various investigations on the development of motor drive end bearing, the cost of motor drive end bearing is constantly changing. Taking into account the current market macroeconomic parameters, value chain analysis, channel partners, demand and supply, the cost of motor drive end bearing will also be affected to a certain extent. It is estimated that the cost of motor drive end bearing will increase slightly from next year.

The market trend of motor drive end bearing?

The cost of raw materials is still the biggest concern for manufacturers. Raw materials account for approximately 60-62% of bearing manufacturers revenue. The price of raw materials for bearings fluctuates continuously according to market economic conditions. Such fluctuations in raw material prices are becoming a real challenge for companies to maintain competitiveness and ensure sustainable profits. As high-grade steel and alloy steel are the main raw materials used to manufacture motor drive end bearing, bearing prices are highly correlated with global steel price trends. Therefore, fluctuations in the price of raw materials have brought challenges for bearing manufacturers to compare prices and quality to manufacture bearings. In addition, the bearings require regular maintenance to avoid failures and extend their service life, which further increases maintenance costs. Therefore, factors such as raw material price fluctuations and regular maintenance costs are expected to hinder the growth of the bearing market.

The market demand for motor drive end bearing?

The global bearing market value in 2020 is 123.34 billion U.S. dollars and is expected to reach 153.62 billion U.S. dollars by 2027, and the compound annual growth rate will also increase steadily.

A bearing is a mechanical element that supports relative movement and helps reduce friction caused between moving parts. Bearings are widely used in various industries such as automobiles, wind turbines, construction machinery, mining machinery, agricultural equipment, and machine tools. It is used in automobiles to ensure smooth driving of automobiles, electric vehicles (EV) and other types of vehicles (such as light commercial vehicles and heavy vehicles such as trucks). Due to the increasing utilization of bearing motor drive end bearing in various end-use industries, rolling mills and electric vehicles, the global motor drive end bearing market has become more and more important. The development of technology has improved the overall efficiency of bearing products in the field and extended the product shelf life.
