Global Chain Drives Market – Introduction
Chain drives are used to transmit power to the sprockets through chains. These machine elements are also responsible for increasing torque and transmitting speed from engines to wheels with the help of looped chains. Demand for chain has been increasing in the last few years, owing to certain advantages offered by chain drives over belt drives. Unlike belt drives, chain drives do not slip, which subsequently mitigates the power loss and increases its operational efficiency. Furthermore, chain drives are more compact, easy to install, and less expensive, as compared to other drives.
However, need for frequent lubrication and generation of comparatively higher levels of noise and vibration are some disadvantages that hamper its adoption. Nonetheless, extensive utilization of chain drives in heavy material handling, rigging, and operation of conveyor belts is estimated to boost its market during the forecast period.
