Abstract Global awareness of environmental improvement has been growing in recent years, and therefore it is necessary to continue responding to environmental issues on an industry-wide scale. To achieve this, it is important to understand the evolution and transformation of motor vehicles precisely, as well as assess bearing technological trends that respond to this evolution and transformation, and advance the development of fundamental technology. This paper presents the trends of automotive bearings and introduces the evolution of technologies for powertrain bearings, drivetrain bearings and chassis bearings which respond to these trends.
