By Type Analysis

  • The Metal Cutting segment held the largest revenue share in 2022

Metal cutting machines play a crucial role in removing excess material from workpieces through cutting or grinding processes. These machines encompass various types, including drilling machines, machining centers, gear cutting machines, lathe machines, grinding machines, among others.

Extensively employed across sectors such as automotive, mechanical engineering, metalworking, and aerospace, metal cutting machines are used to manufacture finished tools with the desired geometry by cutting various ferrous and non-ferrous metals. They provide finished goods with a range of advantages, including specific surface texture or finish, enhanced dimensional precision, intricate shapes, and the desired size. The increasing demand for advanced automated metal-cutting tools is anticipated to drive market expansion.

Metal forming machines find application across diverse industries. Metal-forming machines play a crucial role in various processes, including bending, shearing, pressing, shaping, and forming. The segment is anticipated to be driven by the widespread use of press brake machinery, particularly in industries such as agriculture, aerospace, automotive, shipbuilding, and petroleum machinery, where press brake metal forming machines serve as essential sheet bending tools. Currently, the market for metal-forming machine tools processes could be more cohesive. Key players in the manufacturing of metal-forming machine tools are actively developing cutting-edge technologies to deliver superior products to end-user industries.

By Technology Analysis

  • The Computer Numerical Control (CNC) segment accounted for the highest market share during the forecast period

CNC machines also referred to as "computer numerically controlled" tools, represent advanced metalworking equipment essential for crafting intricate components required in modern technology. The utilization of CNCs, including lathes, milling machines, laser cutters, punch presses, press brakes, abrasive jet cutters, and other industrial tools, has witnessed rapid expansion alongside the evolution of computer technology. These machines receive commands from computer-aided design software, with point-to-point and continuous pathways being the two primary categories of CNC systems. Examples of CNC machinery includes lathes, routers, mills, and plasma cutters. Notable manufacturers of CNC machines include Gedee Weiler, Corporation, Jinagoudra Machine Tools Pvt. Ltd, Esskay International Machine Tools, and Gurmeet Machinery. The integration of a programmable B axis into CNC machines, enabling automatic conversion from Swiss-type machines to fixed machines, results in material cost savings. The demand for these machines is on the rise, driven by their enhanced capabilities and cost-effective features.

The prevalent types of conventional machine tools encompass knurling, screw cutting, turning, facing operations on a lathe machine, drilling holes using a drill machine, and surfacing external & internal keyways on a shaper machine. While both conventional and CNC machining methods are geared towards achieving high-quality tools, CNC technology offers several advantages over traditional machining. For large-scale projects demanding elevated standards of quality and consistency, CNC machining techniques excel in delivering superior product quality.
