DMG MORI and FUCHS PETROLUB SE, for example, signed a partnership deal in September 2017 that entails the two firms working together to develop novel lubricant services and solutions for machine tool applications

COVID-19 Impact

In 2020, the outbreak of the COVID 19 pandemic had a significant economic impact on all industrial sectors around the world. Additionally, machine tool manufacturers are encountering issues as a result of this downturn, which has resulted in a production and sales slowdown in 2020. Furthermore, the imposed lockdown has resulted in the complete halt of manufacturing operations, supply chain problems, personnel availability, and raw material shortages.

Amid the emergence of a global strain caused by a new coronavirus, suppliers are concentrating on resuming production while complying with government guidelines to finish pre-existing orders and support end-users. For example, Mazak Corporation is reportedly serving its clients’ existing orders and aggressively giving help to the healthcare and power generation industries, despite the government’s execution of worker safety regulations.

Market Growth Factors

Growing need for smart machine tools.

The technological breakthroughs such as the increased deployment of robotics and human-machine interaction are found to have an impact on market growth.

As a result, such creative technology combinations are projected to continue to support market expansion in the future.

Market Restraining Factors

Uncertainty related to social and economic factors

Changes in overall economic conditions are causing a significant change in the operation of various industries, including manufacturing sector. The manufacturing industry’s expenditures are proportionate to the sales of these tools. As a result, if the global economy slows, machine tool income is projected to fall. Similarly, due to the increased acceptance of machinery in the industry, trends in the automobile industry have had a greater impact on the tools sector. The patterns in capital investment in the automotive manufacturing sector, on the other hand, have a substantial impact on market revenue. Unexpected changes in a country’s economic, political, or social situations, as well as legislation, can have an impact on the market revenue growth.

Type Outlook

Based on Type, the market is segmented into Lathe Machines, Milling Machines, Laser Machines, Grinding Machines, Welding Machines, Winding Machines, and Others. The Lathe segment acquired the highest revenue share in the machine tools market in 2020. This can be ascribed to the increasing use of lathe equipment for tasks like chamfering, filleting, turning, and slot cutting. The use of lathe machines has increased in recent years as a result of their ability to eliminate human intervention while boosting the precision of machining processes. Manufacturers like Georg Fischer Ltd. and Haas Automation, Inc. are reacting to the trend by concentrating on the creation of novel lathe machines, which is helping the category grow.

Technology Outlook

Based on Technology, the market is segmented into Computer Numerical Control (CNC) and Conventional. The Conventional market segment procured a substantial revenue share in the machine tools market in 2020. It is due to increased demand for mass manufacturing in industries such as paper, pharmaceuticals, and textiles, among others. The construction industry’s increased employment of traditional systems such as saws, drills, and bores, among others, is also propelling the segment’s rise. Conventional machining is often less expensive and is utilized for smaller-scale jobs.

Sales Channel Outlook

Based on Sales Channel, the market is segmented into Direct and Indirect. The Indirect sales segment garnered a substantial revenue share in the machine tools market in 2020. An indirect sales channel is when a third party, like an affiliate or partner, sells a product or service instead of a company’s employees. Indirect sales can be used in combination with direct sales efforts or as a replacement for hiring. Because indirect distribution relieves manufacturers of some beginning expenses and obligations, which might reduce the amount of time they have to devote to running their businesses, the demand for machine tools via this channel is expected to increase in the future years.

End-use Outlook

Based on End-use, the market is segmented into Automotive, Aerospace & Defense, Construction Equipment, Power & Energy, Industrial and Others. The Automotive segment acquired the largest revenue share in the machine tools market in 2020. This is due to an increase in the use of machine tools for the fabrication of engine cylinder heads, transmission housings, brake drums, and gearbox cases among other automotive components. The segment’s growth has also been fueled by the increased demand for CNC machines from carmakers. The COVID-19 epidemic, on the other hand, has impacted Chinese part exports.
