Machine Tools Market – Segmentation

  • Metal cutting tools have a higher machine tools market share with over two-thirds of the sales contribution. The sales of these devices are high in critical industries, including aerospace, defense, automotive, and shipbuilding. They are also observing an application in non-electrical sectors, which have crucial components incorporated using high precision machine tools.

  • Owing to the rise in automation, shift toward digitalization, and the advent of industry 4.0, the demand for automated machine tools has witnessed significant growth in the last few years. Computer numerical control (CNC) machines hold over 60% of the market share and are expected to witness substantial growth during the forecast period.

  • The machine tools market demand is expected to increase due to expansion and increased investments by private and public players in automotive, industrial equipment, metal industries in Europe, APAC, and North America. Thus, the demand for machine tools in various industrial applications is anticipated to grow.

Machine Tools Market – Dynamics

These regions require a technology leap in terms of manufacturing. Another evident trend from history is that countries that have attained a significant gain in GDP per capita over the span of a few decades are those that adopted structural shifts in the manufacturing & production sector, i.e., shifting over time from low technology sectors to high technology manufacturing. Japan and South Korea are key examples. In these economies, while low-tech industries typically dominate the low-income levels, offering large scale employment, productivity gains are majorly enabled by the high-tech industry, being majorly advocated by government and institutional reforms to escape the middle-income trap, which can substantially drive the market for machine tools in the coming years.

Key Drivers and Trends fueling Market Growth:

  • Emphasis on Industry 4.0

  • Rise in Investments

  • Growth in Machine Tools Consuming Industries

  • Rise in Infrastructure Development

Machine Tools Market – Geography

In 2020, APAC was the largest revenue contributor to the global machine tools market, accounting for a market share of over 46% by consumption value and around 51% by production value. In APAC as well as globally, China accounted for a major share in the machine tools market. This can be attributed to the increasing number of investments in fully automated industrial machinery and Y-O-Y growth in government spending toward defense aircraft and equipment in major economies across the region. In addition, since the Chinese market is significantly dependent on its manufacturing industries, the demand for machine tools is high. Rising investments in the industrial sector and the constant shift toward urbanization are major macro factors propelling the market during the forecast period.
