The global computer numerical control (CNC) machine market size was estimated at USD 96.4 billion in 2021 and it is expected to hit around USD 153.8 billion by 2030, poised to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.33% from 2022 to 2030.
Asia Pacific computer numerical control machine market size was valued at USD 47.5 billion in 2021.
By 2030, it is predicted that there would be a demand for more than 2800 thousand CNC machines. The main driver anticipated to propel market expansion throughout the projected period is the rising need for medical devices, electric vehicles (EV), telecom communication equipment, and equipment used in the fabrication of semiconductors. The necessity for five-axis milling and ultra-precision machinery to meet the demands of EV manufactures is also projected to fuel expansion.
Due to increased machine orders across sectors, particularly from Europe, Asia Pacific, and North America, the CNC machine market rebounded strongly in 2021. Due to the pandemic's pent-up demand and backlog of orders, the market had significant growth in 2021. In the near future, this pattern will continue as backlogs from 2020 are caught up. However, it is anticipated that the sales revenues of OEMs would be hampered until 2023 by the global shortage of semiconductors, rising steel prices, and logistical expenses.
Over the course of the projection period, the market for computer numerical control (CNC) machines is anticipated to rise favourably due to automated CNC systems linked with industrial robots including simulation software to boost output. Automation of CNC machines are being used primarily to alleviate the present shortage of trained personnel that most sectors are now experiencing. This makes it possible for manufacturing sectors to boost productivity and efficiency. Incumbents in this market, such Fanuc Corporation and OKAMA America Corporation, focus on integrating new technologies with the current product line to meet this demand. Market difficulties are anticipated as a result of rising raw material costs and a potential scarcity of semiconductors used in CNC machines. In these market circumstances, it is anticipated that used CNC machine demand would rise, limiting the market expansion of new CNC machines. Over the course of the projection, the tendency is anticipated to persist. Long-term changes in the price of raw materials are anticipated to drive up the average unit cost of CNC machines.
