Sewing Machines Market By Product (Industrial, Flat Bed, Post Bed, Cylinder Bed, Off The Arm, Home/Domestic, Manual, Electric, Computerized, Over Locker), By Application (Apparels, Shoes, Bags, Others), By Sales (Online, Offline) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

Sewing machines with enhanced functionality are expected to be in high demand in the coming years.

The sewing machines market was worth US$ 62.35 billion in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2018 to 2026. After decades of struggle, the sewing machine market is finally experiencing a boost, mainly owing to renewed interest in the DIY (do-it-yourself) culture. Home arts, such as sewing and knitting, are gaining popularity among people in order to give a more personalized touch to garments, either by adding appliques to their clothing or by reconstructing old items to achieve vintage looks. With advancements in sewing machines, sewing has become easier and less time-consuming than in the past.

The role of electronic sewing machines in this context has been vital, as it facilitates amateur tailors to make the most of modern features such as automatic intricate embroidery, automatic size adjustment, and "cruise control" options. Moreover, the fact that electronic sewing machines have become less expensive as compared to the past has further contributed to market growth and aided their adoption even among modest households. Another major factor supporting the growth of the sewing machine market is the increasing demand for industrial sewing machines. Garment manufacturers prefer high-end sewing machines because they allow them to save time and energy while also reducing complexity. Moreover, for leading garment manufacturers, producing high-quality products in the least possible time with standardized precision is of prime importance, a factor further fueling the demand for industrial sewing machines.

Market Synopsis

Is this the future of sewing machines?

With the outburst of Industry 4.0, the apparel industry is witnessing an outbreak of innovations in the sewing process. These innovations are transitioning the status of apparel manufacturers from being manually reliant to being technologically and digitally focused. Sewing machines have witnessed massive technological innovation in recent years, with a focus on reducing time to market on the part of manufacturers. For instance, recently, Xi'an Typical won the Texprocess Innovation Award for developing the first sensor-based technology offering entire control over industrial sewing machines without pedals. Another recent trend is the concept of "vision sewing," which enables flawless decorative stitches where there is a scarcity of high skill sets. Key benefits of the vision system include automatic sewing of patterns, consistent sewing speed for multiple patch sewing, improved or less handling of garments or fabrics, and no operator sewing skills.

Automatic bobbin changers are another trend that is gaining popularity. One of the first companies to commercialize the use of automatic bobbin changers was Kinoshita, which stocks eight bobbins in the exchange plate. Leading sewing machine manufacturers are investing heavily in research and development activities, and the results are visible in the form of technological advancements. Some of the other recent developments witnessed in the market include real-time monitoring in sewing machines, convertibility in sewing machines, modular sewing machines, smart sewing machines, a digital feed system in sewing machines, and a USB port in sewing machines, among others.

Technological Advances Will Drive Demand for Industrial Sewing Machines in the Coming Years

The demand for industrial sewing machines has witnessed a steady rise in recent years, mainly owing to the increasing demand for high-end industrial sewing machines. These sewing machines are increasingly being preferred by garment manufacturers as they facilitate saving time and energy and reduce the complexity of the manufacturing process due to their enhanced features. Another important factor aiding the growth of industrial sewing machines can be attributed to the fact that these machines enable the production of high-quality products with standardized precision in less time. Moreover, technological advancements have facilitated the development of lightweight, small, durable, and energy-efficient industrial sewing machines, a factor further complementing the market growth of industrial sewing machines. Recent developments in industrial sewing machines include multi-needle positioning, high-powered motors, laser technologies, touchscreens, and LED lighting, among others.

Asia Pacific is expected to remain the largest market throughout the forecast period.

Asia-Pacific represents the largest market for sewing machines worldwide. Owing to low manufacturing costs, the manufacturing of products, especially through industrial sewing machines, has shifted from developed regions such as Europe and North America to developing countries in Asia and the Pacific. Favorable government policies, cheap labor, and raw materials are some of the important factors that make the region a hub for apparel and non-apparel manufacturers. This factor has positively influenced the demand for sewing machines across the Asia-Pacific region. Moreover, the fact that a large number of sewing machine manufacturers are headquartered in the region further contributes to the market's growth in the region.
