Technavio heavy industry analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global turning tools market:

Rise in construction activities in emerging nations of APAC

The global construction market is witnessing a mixed trend across various regions. Although the slowdown in the Chinese economy has impacted the global construction market, infrastructure planning in developing economies such as India and Indonesia will boost the growth of the global cutting tools market.

Gaurav Mohindru, a lead tools and components research analyst at Technavio, says, “Indonesia is another emerging nation in APAC, and it is contributing a double-digit share of its GDP in the construction sector. The government has announced infrastructure spending of billions of dollars between 2016 and 2020, with about 20% of its spending sanctioned in 2016.”

Growth of metal cutting tools in India

The cutting tool and machining industry are witnessing developments, especially in terms of integration of new tools and technology as well as tool materials, to keep pace with the changing dynamics of the market.

With the continuous and rapid technological advances in computer numeric control machines and workpiece materials to be machined and changing requirements of customers, suppliers of machines tools must offer cutting-edge solutions. This must be coupled with the best service support to satisfy the main objectives of customers such as increased productivity, lower cost per component, and the latest innovative technologies,” adds Gaurav.

Increasing need to develop superior-quality products

Manufacturers worldwide are focusing on adopting state-of-the-art tools to minimize the production time without compromising on the quality of the product. Moreover, on-time delivery is rapidly becoming the key buying criterion across industries.

Furthermore, customers are now insisting on Coordinating Measuring Machine reports to verify the quality of products as well as their adherence to specifications. Despite the deployment of several high-quality machining centers and other such machines, the use of the right cutting tools for machining components is a prime factor that determines the quality of the products manufactured.
