Waterjet Cutting Machine Market

Waterjet Cutting Machine Market by Product Type (3D, Micro, and Robotic), Application (Glass/Metal Art, Fiberglass Cutting, Foam Product Cutting), Industry (Automotive, Machine Manufacturing, Medical Devices), and Geography - Global Forecast to 2023

Report Code: SE 6540 Aug, 2018, by marketsandmarkets.com

[112 Pages Report] Waterjet Cutting Machine or WCM, is an industrial tool that uses a high-pressure jet stream of water to cut different materials. The jet stream may contain pure water or an abrasive material mixed with it. The waterjet cutting technology is capable of cutting various materials, including metals, glass, stone, foam, and reflective materials without melting, distorting, or warping their original structure. Waterjet cutting machines do not require heat for cutting and thus maintain the base quality of the material being processed. This makes waterjet cutting highly suitable for cutting the materials which are sensitive to high temperatures.

The waterjet cutting machine market was valued at USD 0.86 Billion in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 1.24 Billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 6.25% during the forecast period. The objective of the report is to describe, segment, and forecast the market based on product type, application, industry, and geography. Significant factors influencing the growth of this market include promising growth in the global steel industry, growing automobile industry, development of the industrial sector in the Middle East and Africa, and an overall increase in construction activities.

Waterjet Cutting Machine Market

The market for robotic waterjet cutting machines to grow at the highest CAGR from 2018 to 2023

A robotic waterjet cutting machine consists of an industrial robot and a high–pressure water jet system. The robotic waterjets are used to cut, drill, and clean a variety of materials. These are used to cut automobile internal parts, to cut holes, or trim the edges. Another common application of robot waterjet cutter is to cut helmet or similar 3D products. Depending on the size of parts to be cut, the model of a robot (i.e., the radius of the arm and weight carried by the arm) is selected.

Glass/metal art to hold the largest share of the waterjet cutting market by 2023

Glass/metal art has been the most common application of these machines all over the world. The growing demand for hurricane glass for car doors and windows in the automotive industry is driving the growth of the waterjet cutting machine market. The market for foam product cutting is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2018 to 2023. The rising demand for foam equipment and machine part packaging in the aerospace and automotive industries fuels the growth of the waterjet cutting machine market.

Waterjet Cutting Machine Market

Waterjet Cutting Market in APAC to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The growth of the market in APAC is driven by the expansion of the metal fabrication and automotive industries, coupled with the growing machine manufacturing sector in India and China, among others. The efforts by the Government of India to strengthen the country’s manufacturing industry through its “Make in India” initiative is likely to propel the demand for waterjet cutting machines in the next few years. This initiative focuses on 25 sectors, which include automobiles, aerospace, and railways, and electrical machinery; it aims to facilitate investments, build high-class manufacturing infrastructure, and foster innovation.

Market Dynamics

Driver: Promising growth in the global steel industry

The steel industry has been showing steady growth through its sustainable performance since the last decade. The growing urbanization all over the world is expected to play a vital role in the expansion of the waterjet cutting industry in the future. The inflow of migrants from small towns and villages to bigger towns and cities will create substantial demand for steel, especially in the development of infrastructure, which, in turn, will drive the demand for waterjet cutting machines. Steel is one of the most important and widely consumed raw materials in industries such as energy, construction, automotive, transportation, infrastructure, packaging, and machinery. It is also an essential material in the generation and distribution of renewable energy, such as thermal, solar, and tidal power.

Restraint: High total cost of ownership and requirement of technical know-how

The overall waterjet cutting machine market is growing at a significant pace; however, there some issues restraining the growth of this market. High energy consumption, sensitivity to environmental conditions, probability of improper selection, poor maintenance, high cost of ownership, and difficulties faced during fabrication are some of the major problems encountered during the handling of any equipment.

The energy consumed by waterjet cutting machines directly contributes to the operating cost of any company, which makes it a severe issue for the company. Problems related to accuracy, drift, and sensitivity can only be solved with the proper and timely maintenance of these machines; thus, timely maintenance is a must for the appropriate functioning of waterjets. Moreover, regular calibration is necessary for the efficient operation of these machines; the companies mostly outsource the process of calibration. The majority of the end-users install these machines and use them with minimal maintenance to avoid extra cost, which affects their performance in the long term.

The price of waterjet cutting machines is also high due to the complicated process of manufacturing these machines. These machines may cost 2–4-times more than that of traditional cutting machinery.

Opportunity: Increasing demand for mechanized cutting in the industrial sector of developing economies

Major industries in the developing economies, such as China, India, and Brazil, include petrochemicals, power, chemicals, textile, food, and packaging. These industries are at the peak of their development. This growth of the abovementioned industries is expected to lead to an increase in demand for waterjet cutting machines. Automation in the cutting industry could prove to be one of the significant opportunities for higher productivity and reduced costs.

Automation is considered the most extensive and fastest-growing segment in the cutting industry as it considerably increases productivity and safety, and reduces costs, which fuels the demand for automated and robotic cutting systems. These computerized cutting machines and systems are likely to have a considerable impact on the transportation, automotive, railroad, marine, aerospace, and construction industries, among others. Automation of cutting processes includes some new but prominent processes such as plate grinding, piping, and heavy tubular splicing.

Challenge: Development of cost-effective technologies

The waterjet cutting technology is an expensive one for the commercial and residential customers; however, they play an essential part in these sectors. Sensitivity, selectivity, stability, cost, and portability are the aspects looked for by customers while purchasing this equipment. For instance, cutting machines based on waterjet technology are more expensive than machines based on traditional cutting technologies; however, these machines are far better in accuracy and reliability than the traditional ones. These devices are designed to meet requirements such as high sensitivity and selectivity but are highly-priced. Therefore, it remains a challenge to design a cost-effective technology that is affordable for consumers across all sectors.
