Key Market Trends

Increasing Focus on the Implementation of Industry 4.0

  • The growth of Industry 4.0, or the Internet of Things (IoT), which is a key trend, is expected to have a profound influence on tooling and fabricating equipment, as it relates to the flow of information to machine tools and engineers/operators. Smart tooling is expected to provide real-time feedback about problems, such as vibration, and send alerts to the engineer.
  • The transition to Industry 4.0 starts with machining environments that are highly consistent in day-to-day operations. Tool presetting is vital to the beginning of this process. Once the tool holder assembly is preset, data can be sent directly to the machine tool (saving time and preventing potential machining mistakes) or it can be transferred to an RFID chip installed in the tool holder.
  • Manufacturers find the presetting process to be a huge factor in reducing scrap during production. The demand for Industry 4.0 solutions is increasing as companies move toward consistent, highly productive machining.


Metal Fabrication Equipment Market Trends

Growth of Machining Centers and the Machine Tools Market

  • The metal cutting machine market, which was valued at USD 5.99 billion in 2016, is expected to record a CAGR of 5.7% between 2017 and 2025.
  • Automotive was the largest application segment for the market studied in 2016, and it is expected to register a CAGR of 6.5% between 2018 and 2024.
  • The metal fabrication market in Asia-Pacific is likely to experience a substantial growth over the next few years, owing to the robust growth in various application industries, especially in the automotive, and aerospace and defense markets.
  • In terms of value, the Asia-Pacific market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.7% between 2018 and 2024. Moreover, the increasing demand for metal cutting equipment is expected to increase the demand for metal fabrication equipment over the next few years.
