The global CNC Machine Tools market size was valued at US$ 19.916 billion in 2020 and expected to reach around US$ 34.402 billion by the end of 2030, growing at a CAGR of 6.50% over forecast period 2021-2030.

CNC is the short form for Computer Numerical control. We have seen that the NC machine works as per the program of instructions fed into the controller unit of the machine. The CNC machine comprises of the mini computer or the microcomputer that acts as the controller unit of the machine. While in the NC machine the program is fed into the punch cards, in CNC machines the program of instructions is fed directly into the computer via a small board similar to the traditional keyboard.

With the aim to contain the spread of the coronavirus, the need for plastic shields and face guards has heightened since the pandemic began. These items are manufactured on CNC routers such as the M-Series Router made by the US-based CNC machining specialist, C.R. Onsrud. Engineered from plexiglass, polycarbonate, and other transparent polymers, these materials can be customized according to the needs of the business. As retail stores, restaurants, and other commercial spaces begin to reopen, the demand for plastic partitions is expected to soar, creating unprecedented opportunities for manufacturers of CNC machine tools.

Based on the product type, the CNC Machine Tools is primarily split into CNC Lathe, CNC Milling Machine, CNC Grinding Machine, Others, etc.

CNC Lathes are machines that cut workpieces while they are rotated. CNC lathes are able to make fast, precision cuts, generally using indexable tools and drills. They are particularly effective for complicated programs designed to make parts that would be infeasible to make on manual lathes. CNC lathes have similar control Specifications to CNC mills and can often read G-code as well as the manufacturer's proprietary programming language. CNC lathes generally have two axes (X and Z), but newer models have more axes, allowing for more advanced jobs to be machined.

Many CNC milling machines use G-code, which is a standardized programming language that many CNC machines understand, while others use proprietary languages created by their manufacturers. These proprietary languages, while often simpler than G-code, are not transferable to other machines. CNC mills have many functions including face milling, shoulder milling, tapping, drilling and some even offer turning. Standard linear CNC mills are limited to 3 axis (X, Y, and Z), but others may also have one or more rotational axes. Today, CNC mills can have 4 to 6 axes.

The milling machine segment holds the major market share of the machine tool market and is expected to grow more in the future because of the increasing demand from the manufacturing companies for productivity improvements and product innovation. Growth in the manufacturing sector has led to a rapid increase in demand specifically for the increasingly sophisticated CNC machines. Automation of machine tools leads to enhanced productivity, time saving, and elimination of human errors. The new age CAD/CAM CNC machines are compact in size are equipped with automatic tool changers along with multi axis machining technology and can carry out the complete machining process using a single machine. Additionally, the use of CNC machine tools also reduces the requirement for extra tooling and accessories and human intervention, which results on the overall reduction in operating costs. Such benefits will increase their demand in the coming years, fueling market growth.

CNC Grinding Machines are machine tools which use a rotating grinding wheel to achieve material removal on a metallic workpiece by means of cutting. Grinding Machines are mostly used for the hard-fine machining of workpieces (parts).

As of 2020, CNC lathe machining tools segment holds the largest market contributing more than 65.5% of the total market share, reach to US$ 13049.4 million.

Extensive Advantages of CNC Machines in the Automotive Industry to Aid Growth

The applicability of CNC machine tools in the automotive industry is wide, with automobile manufacturers extensively utilizing this technology to enhance efficiency and productivity in assembly plants. For example, CNC machining can be used to design and engineer many of the vehicle’s critical engine components, which can be fitted into the engine block through this machining technique. The advantages offered by these tools to carmakers are several and this is one of the central factors fueling the CNC machine tools market growth. The most distinct advantage of CNC machining is speed. Operated automatically through computer programs, these tools eschew the need for human intervention in the manufacturing process. As a result, they can work without breaks and can elevate production levels of a plant, especially when producing parts in large volumes.

Excellent Growth of the Automotive Industry to Generate Sales Opportunities in Asia Pacific

Asia Pacific dominated the CNC machine tools market share in 2020, having a market size of USD 44.65 billion. The region is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period on account of the promising growth displayed by the automotive industry in China and India. Moreover, the demand for CNC machines is also growing from other significant industries such as aerospace, transportation, and equipment manufacturing.

The Middle East & Africa region is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for market players as the oil-rich countries are gradually developing their non-oil business sectors. In North America, the demand for CNC machine tools is likely to remain stable owing to the quick adoption of advanced manufacturing technologies in the region.
