Introduction of 3D Printing Technology Opens up New Avenues for Growth of Multi-tasking Machine Tools Market

Published Date : Mar 14, 2017

Albany, New York, March 14, 2017: The global market for multi-tasking machine tools is fueled by the rising demand for computer numeric control (CNC) machines and products of superior quality. A report added to states that this market will register a CAGR of almost 3.0% from 2017 to 2021 driven by the high potential presented by CNC machines. Titled “Global Multi-Tasking Machine Tools Market 2017-2021”, the report talks about the trending factors impacting the market and the opportunities and threats faced by leading vendors. 

The ability of multi-tasking machine tools to perform several operations at a time on a single machine and several government initiatives to promote the use of these machines will also drive the global market. In contrast, the lack of skilled labor to operate multi-tasking machine tools and financial constraints faced by certain players hold the market back. 

Perhaps the most significant trend that has influenced the multi-tasking machine tools market is the emergence of 3D printing. Industry experts have noted a major shift from conventional techniques of manufacturing to three-dimensional printing and this is because of the several benefits this technology offers, including lower cost of raw materials and reduction in capital costs. Apart from this, the surge in automation and the introduction of hybrid machines will present players several growth opportunities.
