Emergence of Hybrid Technology to Drive Global Machine Tools Market

Date: 30th Jun 2020 | Category: Metal & Mining

The global machine tool market is forecasted to reach US$67.9 billion in 2024, growing at a CAGR of 6.06% for the period spanning 2020-2024. The factors such as accelerating industrialization, increasing shipments of 5G smartphones, rapid urbanization, increasing electric vehicle deployment and improving consumer confidence are expected to drive the market. However, growth of the industry would be challenged by high maintenance cost, stiff competition and US-China trade war. Few notable trends include increasing laser machine tool sector, emergence of hybrid technology, surging adoption of IoT in machine tool and growing turnkey project demand in Japan.

In 2020, the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has created an unfavorable impact on the market as the machine tools orders have decreased rapidly. 

The machine tools which are operated by a worker turning a handle are used mainly in developing markets. Numerical Control (NC) machine tools that perform automatic operations based on numerical control using a computer are already widespread in developed markets, including Japan, Europe, and the U.S. (NC machine tools account for over 90% of machine tool production value in Japan).

The fastest growing market is China due to strong demand for CNC machining center, lathes & grinding machines; growth in installation of energy grids, growing demand for highly advanced & comprehensive metal cutting machines, rising defence & aerospace industry, increasing technological advancements and rapid urbanization in country.
