Market Synopsis:

Metal-Cutting Machine Tools Segment to Retain Dominant Position:

The metal-cutting tools segment led the overall machine tools market worldwide in 2017, contributing to nearly 2/3 of the total market value. Industrial sectors, including automotive, aerospace and defense, machine tools and parts manufacturing, and several others, have material cutting as a major application. With consistent growth observed across these verticals, the metal-cutting tools segment would continue to exhibit promising growth over the forecast period. The segment comprises a variety of machines, including drilling and boring, lathes, milling and machining centers, grinding, lapping, honing, and polishing machines, and others.

With a market share of more than 50%, Asia Pacific dominates.

Asia Pacific leads the overall machine tool market worldwide, accounting for more than 50% of the total market value as of 2017. The presence of a huge industrial manufacturing sector encompassing automotive, aerospace and defense, parts manufacturing, electrical and electronics, and several others primarily governs the market here. Due to factors such as the abundant availability of resources and cheap labor, the manufacturing sector here is expected to continue flourishing over the following years, thereby enabling the region to retain its dominance. China plays the most prominent role in the Asia Pacific as well as the global machine tool market. China has emerged as the world's largest consumer and producer of machine tools as its manufacturing sector has expanded over the decades.

Europe follows the Asia Pacific in terms of revenue in the overall machine tool market. Prominent markets for machine tools in the region include Germany, Italy, France, the U.K., Spain, Russia, and Poland, among others. The demand here is mainly backed by the presence of the automotive, aerospace, and electrical and electronics manufacturing sectors. Further, North America is expected to exhibit promising growth over the forecast period. In August 2017, US manufacturing companies purchased (ordered) machine tools worth nearly US$ 380 million, a 14.3% increase over August 2016. This is attributed to continued growth in industrial production here since 2016.

Geographic Expansion and Service Improvement Will Remain the Primary Strategies:

The overall machine tool market is highly competitive in nature, with major players emphasizing the development of more efficient automated products. CNC machines have seen tremendous penetration across various verticals over the years. Subsequently, market players' focus moved to develop sophisticated CNC machine tools. Companies manufacture sophisticated machine tools and follow a trend of exhibiting them at tradeshows and other such events. In addition, geographic expansion is another prominent strategy observed in the market, with the aim of serving a wide array of customers worldwide. The majority of the companies are involved in expanding their network of distribution to ensure their presence across multiple geographies. For instance, in January 2018, Toyoda Americas Corporation announced Stone Machinery, a machine tool distributor in the U.S., as its new distributor. The partnership allows the company to increase its reach in states such as Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Western Wisconsin.
