Global Machine Tools Market 2016-2020 - Major Trend of Integration of 3D Printing Technology with Machine Tools

Date : 2016-03-04  | From :

The global machine tools market to grow at a CAGR of 6.55% during the period 2016-2020.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global machine tools market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of metal cutting machine tools, metal forming machine tools, and accessories. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
The dramatic changes that 3D printing technology has brought about will likely have an impact on machine tools and plastic injection molding. 3D printing technology reduces material usage by nearly 30%-70% as compared to traditional techniques. This results in faster speed to market for new products and a reduction in development costs. Many machine tool manufacturers are incorporating this technology into their machine tools.

According to the report, the growth in global fabricated metal products market positively impacts the global machine tools market. Fabricated metals are used in ammunition, small arms, cutlery, and utensils, stamped metal products, fasteners, springs, building products, tanks, cranes, and hardware. These metals are manufactured using machine tools. The rising global demand for fabricated metals from the construction and machinery industries is fueling the global fabricated metal products market, which in turn, drives the global machine tools market.

Further, the report states that the slow growth of the real estate and manufacturing sectors in China will have an adverse effect on the global machine tools market.
