APAC: largest revenue generating region for lathe machine

APAC contributed to the highest share in the global lathe machines market in 2015 and accounted for almost 54% of the overall market share. The growth of the market in this region is attributable to the flourishing manufacture sector owing to the low-cost manufacturing havens in the region such as China, India, and the technical expertise available in countries such as South Korea. Increased foreign investments, more advanced manufacturing machinery, and equipment are helping the manufacturing output to grow in these countries. The resultant increase in the manufacturing output is likely to act as an incentive for the growth of the lathe machine market in APAC during the forecast period.

According to Anju Ajaykumar, a lead analyst at Technavio for engineering tools, “Metal additive manufacturing is an upcoming trend in the global lathe machine market. Additive manufacturing is used for creating three-dimensional objects from digital files. The technique can be used to produce complex shapes that may not be feasible with traditional casting and machining methods, or subtractive techniques.”

Lathe machine market in EMEA

During 2015, EMEA accounted for more than 31% of the global market. European countries such as Germany, the UK, and Italy are the primary consumers of metalworking equipment and services in the region. The high demand for metalworking equipment is attributable to the growing investments made in the automotive and aerospace industries in these countries. The growth of the global commercial aviation sector is triggering an upsurge in orders for more aircraft from the European aircraft manufacturing companies such as France’s Airbus. This has led to capacity expansion activities in these industries. It is boosting the demand for metal heat treatment equipment and services in Europe’s aerospace industry.

Lathe equipment market in the Americas

The Americas was the smallest revenue-generating region of the global market during 2015 with a market share of around 15%. In North America, the US is a major market for automotive manufacturers. Traditionally, it has been a global leader in the field of automobile technology. The country boasts of a huge consumer base with high levels of disposable incomes that drive the demand for automotive, resulting in an increased demand for metalworking equipment. The US is the leader in the automotive production, followed closely by Mexico. Availability of cheap labor, land, and proximity to major export destinations have attracted major OEMs like Toyota, General Motors, Chrysler, Ford, Nissan, BMW, Honda, Volkswagen, Audi, and Mazda to the country.
