This industry research report identifies Amada, TRUMPF, DMTG, DMG Mori, and U.S. Industrial Machinery as the key vendors in the global sheet metal equipment market. This report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by application (metal cutting, metal forming, and metal welding) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global sheet metal equipment market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global sheet metal equipment market will grow steadily during the next four years and will post a CAGR of almost 7% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the growing demand for fabricated metal products as one of the primary growth factors for the sheet metal tools market. The recent years have witnessed a rapid increase in the demand for fabricated metal products from the US. Several countries such as Mexico, Canada, and China rely heavily on the US’s supply of fabricated metals products. Though most manufacturing companies produce only a limited range of products, the requirement of fabricated metals will be considerably high from the segments such as cutlery, boiler, metal can, and springs. This will subsequently result in the increase in demand for machine tools such as sheet metal equipment from this region, in turn, fueling the growth of the sheet metal fabrication tools market.

The increased adoption of metal additive manufacturing or 3-D printing is one of the major trends that will gain traction in the sheet metal machinery market in the next four years. This manufacturing technology involves building up thin layers of material and can effectively produce complex shapes that are not possible with traditional casting and machining methods. 3D printing reduces the number of items in the assembly line, eliminates the need for tools resulting in reduced tooling costs, allows access to complex geometries, and also enables the manufacture of lightweight and customized items, which will result in a rapid increase in their adoption.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

Marked by the presence of a number of sheet metal equipment manufacturers, the market appears to be fragmented. The competitive environment among the major vendors in the market is quite intense. The market is also marked by the existence of several regional and local vendors. These vendors manufacture and provide customized and energy-efficient equipment for a comparatively lower cost, in turn, posing a stiff competition to the international vendors. Though the entry barriers are low, the new vendors find it difficult to compete with the international vendors in terms of quality, features, functionalities, and services. The introduction of products with new features and technologies is expected to intensify the level of competition among vendors.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Amada
  • DMTG
  • DMG Mori
  • U.S. Industrial Machinery

The other prominent vendors in the market are Allied Machine & Engineering, Byjc-Okuma (Beijing) Machine Tools, Doosan Infracore, Fair Friend Group, FANUC, GF Machining Solutions, Haas Automation, Hardinge, JTEKT, Kennametal, Komatsu, Makino Milling Machine, and Sandvik.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the sheet metal equipment market

  • Metal cutting
  • Metal forming
  • Metal welding

During 2015, the metal cutting equipment segment accounted for almost 68% of the total market shares and dominated this industry. The growth of this market segment mainly attributes to the demand for metal cutting equipment from the developed countries in Europe and the emerging economies in Asia. Analysts estimate this market segment to grow at a CAGR of more than 7% during the forecast period.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the sheet metal equipment market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

This market study predicts that in terms of geographical regions, APAC will account for the major shares of the sheet metal equipment market throughout the forecast period and also estimates that this region will account for almost 40% of the total market shares by 2020. The rise in investments in major end-user segments such as the automotive and aviation industry in the developing countries such as China and India, will drive the growth of the sheet metal tools equipment market in this region.
