Metal Cutting Tools Market – Design, Research & Development, Testing & Production Services

Metal cutting tools are a type of machine tools that ensure the effective manufacturing of critical and intricate components with ease and utmost precision. In ancient times, machines such as horizontal lathes existed in one form or another, whereas computer-numerical-controlled (CNC) metal cutting machines are recent additions. Metal cutting tools are powered by electric motors and are used for one of many cutting processes that includes turning, milling, grinding, and boring, to complete the desired cut on the metal work piece.

Metal cutting tools have varied forms which include plasma cutters, fiber cutters, and laser cutting devices. Plasma cutting is primarily used for the fabrication and welding of metals as they ensure accurate results in comparison to other product forms.

Over the years, laser cutting industry has undergone significant improvements in quality and thickness of cutting material, power, and efficiency and this has resulted in development of laser cutting machines. Laser-based metal cutting machines are anticipated to have a positive impact on the market as they offer a high degree of precision.

The key driver identified for the metal cutting tools market is the exponential growth in the automotive industry. In addition, the global market for metal cutting tools is anticipated to expand due to growth aided by recovery in key end-use markets in the developed world.

Furthermore, the growing production of light vehicles will create potential demand for new welded automotive components, as a result, creating demand for metal cutting tools during the forecast period. These tools will continue to account for majority of the total machine tools market.
