Report Overview

The global computer numerical control machines market size was valued at USD 71.46 billion in 2020 and is expected to exhibit a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.5% from 2021 to 2028. The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively affected the market in terms of new sales and installations. However, the existing Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machines across the globe are being used to manufacture components for medical products, such as masks, respirators, & filters, and critical infrastructure during the pandemic. As such, even with the imminent slowdown of the market growth, it is expected to recover fully in a short term. The pandemic has compelled several companies operating in the machine tool market to temporarily halt manufacturing operations to comply with new government regulations. Revenue streams have been directly affected due to the adverse impact caused by supply chains and trade disruptions on the overall business operations.

The advancements in production technology provide the ability to produce components with a better surface finish and a reduction in the time required for manufacturing components. Furthermore, the market is driven by emerging needs for smaller factory footprints owing to the lack of availability of space. The modern machine variants are compact and do not require any operator or supervisor to constantly monitor machine operations. This minimizes the need for manual labor, in turn, saving costs for the company. These factors are anticipated to drive the market growth over the forecast period.

End use industries, such as automotive, manufacturing, and power & energy, are focusing on current technological trends in the field of CNC software to enhance the connectivity of machines with operators and improve flexibility on the shop floor area. The evolution of machine learning and the Internet of Things (IoT) has resulted in the introduction of new features, such as an application that notifies the status of a machine to the operators/supervisors on their smartphones or PCs. In addition, these technologies used in CNC machines reduce the time required for manufacturing the workpieces and the chances of errors. Owing to these factors, end users choose Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machines over traditional ones and this is anticipated to drive the market growth. Technological advancements have resulted in the development of software and applications that allow managers to track the activities carried out on the shop floor by the operators. These features enable proactive decision-making by the managers and help improve the productivity of the unit.

However, the costs associated with purchasing and installation of these machines are acting as a challenge to the market growth to a certain extent. Furthermore, manufacturers are dependent on third-party raw material suppliers to manufacture computer control systems and key components, such as drives and motors. An interruption in raw material supply and the significant increase in prices of third-party suppliers are anticipated to have an adverse effect on business and result in the slowdown of manufacturing operations.

Type Insights

The lathe machines segment accounted for the highest revenue share of over 28% in 2020 and will remain dominant throughout the forecast period. The recent variants include5- and 6-axis lathes that perform operations from both ends and can be used for producing fine cuts and providing a better finish. Benefits, such as ease of operation, and their myriad applications are resulting in their increased adoption across the globe.

The laser machines segment is anticipated to gain traction over the forecast period owing to the growing demand for improved speed of machining and reduced requirement of the workforce. In addition, the growing demand for automating metal cutting processes and the increasing adoption of digitalization in manufacturing processes to develop components and products with complex geometry are anticipated to drive the demand for the CNC laser machines over the forecast period.

End use Insights

The industrial end use segment accounted for the highest revenue share of more than 26% in 2020 and will retain its leading position during the forecast years. The rising adoption of technologies, such as IoT, Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning, and robotics, is anticipated to drive the growth of the industrial segment. These technologies help serve the increasing demands from the end users in this segment.

The automotive end use segment is anticipated to register the fastest growth rate over the forecast period. The increase in product demand from automobile manufacturers for the mass production of workpieces in minimal time and expenses is expected to drive the segment growth. Furthermore, the key manufacturers in the market are offering CNC machines to be used for high-volume production in the automotive industry. For instance, Hurco Companies, Inc. offers VT series, a high-speed drill and tap machine for high-volume production of electronics components and automotive parts.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific dominated the global market with a revenue share of over 36% in 2020. The regional market is estimated to expand further at the fastest CAGR from 2021 to 2028 due to the presence of major manufacturers, such as Okuma Corp., Yamazaki Mazak Corp., and DMG Mori Co., Ltd. in the region. Furthermore, supportive government initiatives and organization of trade shows in the region to spread awareness about the latest technologies in manufacturing will drive the market. For instance, in January 2020, International Conference on Robotics and Smart Manufacturing (ICROSMA 2020) was organized to provide a platform for researchers, students, and academicians to share recent ideas and knowledge in the field of smart manufacturing and robotics. Such initiatives are anticipated to drive market growth in the Asia Pacific.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

The market is subject to technological changes, changing customer requirements, evolving industry standards, and improvements in and expansion of product offerings.
