[60 Pages Report] Post COVID-19, the global machine tool market size is projected to reach USD 68.9 billion by 2021 from an estimated USD 65.6 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 5.0%. The projections were based on the ongoing automotive industry production drop, which is the biggest consumer of machine tools and, additionally, the supply chain disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic in the manufacturing industry.
The machine tool market reached an all-time high in 2018. However, with the continuous decrease in automotive production over the last 2-3 years, the trade war (between the US and China) on tariffs creating a weak demand in downstream industries and the uncertainty in the international relations has impacted investment decisions, resulting in ~11% decline in the machinery demand for 2019.
Even with COVID-19 originating from China, the country has been successfully implementing strategies to control the spread, where it has been successful when compared to Europe and North America. Recently China has slowly started its production activities with minimum workforce and Asia being the largest automotive producer. Thus, the machine tool market is expected to rebound faster with investments in new technologies like chipmaking equipment, which will propel market growth, as the field likely will see increased demand amid advancement in technologies for 5G communication and artificial intelligence.
“Supply chain disruptions during the COVID-19 have made machine tool manufacturers, and other end-use industries realize the over-reliance on China could be destructive.”
Problems in the supply of materials have affected machine tool manufacturers due to supply shortages from China, as most of the materials were imported from China, and due to the lockdown or limited production, other countries were looked for supply. Due to the demand, large suppliers of components that dominate the market prioritized big companies to SMEs at the time of recovery. Also, the recent disruptions in the supply chain have revealed that machine tool manufacturers, over-rely on suppliers of key components, and their weak negotiation power vis-à-vis suppliers of CNC, electronic components, casting, high precision components, and others.
Some OEMs have strategically planned to re-tool their production systems to make completely different products. For example, when the automotive industry was down by more than 90% in China in February, automobile manufacturers like Shanghai-GM-Wuling (SGMW) quickly retooled its production system to produce medical face masks. This positively contributed to mitigating the COVID-19 spread and, at the same time, generated rewarding revenues and a positive reputation for the company.
Some of the major players in the machine tool market are Doosan (South Korea), Amada (Japan), Makino (Japan), JTEKT (Japan), GF Machining Solutions (Switzerland), DMG Mori (Japan), Komatsu (Japan), OKUMA (Japan), Hyundai WIA (South Korea), Schuler (Germany), and Chiron Group (Germany), among others.

The study involved four major activities in estimating the current size of the global machine tool market. Exhaustive secondary research was done to collect information on the market, the peer market, and the parent market, and the impact of COVID-19. The next step was to validate these findings, assumptions, and sizing with the industry experts across value chains through primary research. The top-down approach was employed to estimate the complete market size. Thereafter, market breakdown and data triangulation processes were used to estimate the market size of segments and subsegments.
In the secondary research process, various secondary sources such as company annual reports/presentations, press releases, industry association publications [such as publications of machine tool journals, country-level machine tool associations & trade organizations], machine tool magazine articles, directories, technical handbooks, World Economic Outlook, trade websites, and technical articles were used to identify and collect information useful for an extensive commercial study of the global machine tool market.
Extensive primary research has been conducted after acquiring an understanding of the machine tool market scenario through secondary research. Several primary interviews have been conducted with market experts from the demand- and supply-side OEMs (in terms of machine suppliers, country-level associations, and trade associations) and component manufacturers across three major regions, namely, Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America. Approximately 23% and 77% of primary interviews have been conducted from the demand- and supply-side, respectively. Primary data has been collected through questionnaires, emails, LinkedIn, and telephonic interviews. In the canvassing of primaries, we have strived to cover various departments within organizations, such as sales, operations, and administration, to provide a holistic viewpoint in our report.
After interacting with industry experts, we conducted brief sessions with highly experienced independent consultants to reinforce the findings from our primaries. This, along with the in-house subject matter experts’ opinions, has led us to the findings as described in the remainder of this report. Following is the breakdown of primary respondents.
