Braiding Machine Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Both Developed and Developing Nations Are Seeing an Increase In Industry and Urbanization- Growing urbanization and industrialization in both developed and developing nations is anticipated to propel the braiding machine market during the forecast period. This is because the number of industries contributing to development is on the rise, and the continuous expansion of automobile production is one of the key drivers of the global market. Approximately 4.4 billion people, or 56% of the world's population, live in cities today. By 2050, over seven out of ten people will live in cities as a result of this trend, with the urban population predicted to have more than doubled from its current level.
  • The Fashion Industry's Continued Expansion- In terms of demand, through 2022 and beyond, younger groups like Gen-Z and wealthier consumers from middle-class and up are anticipated to have the greatest hunger for leisure expenditure (including clothing, dining out, travel, entertainment, gadgets, and so forth). Sales in the Chinese fashion industry, which covers both luxury and non-luxury categories, have already recovered to levels seen prior to the pandemic. The intricate network of global supply lines that supports the garment industry is under unheard-of stress and upheaval. To keep products moving in line with customer demand, businesses need to reevaluate their procurement strategy while incorporating cutting-edge supply chain operations and maximum flexibility.


  • Supply chain interruption due to COVID-19- The COVID-19 pandemic has caused the manufacture of a number of products in the braiding machine business to stop, mostly as a result of the extended lockdown in several key international nations. This has greatly slowed the braiding machine market growth in recent months and is probably going to do so in 2020. COVID-19 has already had an adverse effect on machinery and equipment sales in the first quarter of 2020, and it is probably going to have a detrimental effect on market growth all year long.
  • High initial investment required for purchasing and setting up braiding machines can be substantial, especially for advanced automated systems.
  • Advanced braiding machines required skilled operators who can handle complex programming and machine setup. The lack of skilled personnel poses challenge for market growth.

Braiding Machine Segmentation

End User Industry (Textile, Sporting, Automotive, Medical, Aerospace, Electrical, Marine Sector);

The textile segment is anticipated to hold 28% share of the global braiding machine market by the 2036. The rise in demand for ready-made clothing can be ascribed to rising levels of consumerism in developing nations like China, India, Thailand, and Indonesia. Furthermore, the textile sector is experiencing notable technical breakthroughs that are propelling the demand for automatic braiding machines worldwide. The expanding global market can be attributed to the burgeoning textile sector in developing nations like Bangladesh, India, and China. Around 24 million metric tons of textile fibers were produced globally in 1975. That amount had almost quadrupled by 2022 and exceeded 113.8 million metric tons. The manufacturing volume of natural fibers, such as cotton and wool, was 25.2 million metric tons, while the remaining 87.6 million metric tons were produced by chemical fibers. Chemical fibers include artificial cellulosic fibers like rayon and viscose, as well as synthetic fibers like polyesters and polyamides. Additionally, because automatic braiding machines perform better than traditional machines, the demand for them is expected to rise in industrialized nations.

Product Type (Horn Gear Braider, Wardwell Rapid Braider, 4track & Column Braider, Wire Braiding Machines)

The horn gear braider segment in the braiding machine market is expected to hold largest revenue share of about 38% during the forecast period. In automatic braiding machines, horn gear braziers are utilized to engage and disengage the drive train without the need for human interaction. To engage the machine, simply attach the desired chord or cable on either end of the brazier. The machine then snaps into place and shuts off. The brazier is a straightforward but efficient gadget made up of two revolving disks that are each attached to a cable or cord. The disks are placed at the top and bottom of the machine when the brazier is placed on it.
