Computer Numerical Control Machine Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growth in the construction industry in 3D printing worldwide - Construction companies and firms are increasingly adopting 3D printing to produce custom-made parts and structures, as well as for prototyping and testing purposes. For instance, in 2019, a construction engineering firm Skanska partnered with Lough Borough University, UK, to promote the usage of 3D printing technology. These companies will be able to reduce their operational costs and time spent on manual construction, and this is expected to drive significant growth in the CNC machine market.
  • The shortage of competent workers and rising labor costs: The use of CNC machines is mostly handled by the cost of labor, especially in industrialized sectors of the nations. CNC machines are proven to be a boon in the sector of skilled labor shortage that earlier prevailed.
  • Rising Technological developments: The CNC machines are still in research and development with the help of new technologies like machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI). These developments are producing machines that are more capable of carrying out the toolpath commands faster, along with increased memory capacity, CPU speed, and bus communication rates.


  • Exorbitant Initial Investment - Given the high initial cost of the machines, CNC technology requires a large investment since purchasing CNC machine tools requires a substantial upfront payment as they have extensive maintenance requirements.
  • Involvement in complex technology increases the need for skilled operators.
  • Shortage of skilled technicians in several regions may limit its adoption.

Computer numerical control (CNC) Machine Segmentation

Machine Type (Lathe, Milling, Laser, Grinding, Welding, Winding)

The lathe segment in the CNC machine market is estimated to gain a robust revenue share of 60% in the coming years owing to the growing oil and gas industry. A significant portion of the energy industry and the world economy are dominated by the oil and natural gas sectors driven by changing energy consumption coupled with an increase in the focus on sustainable practices and investments in non-traditional energy sources. As per IEA's India Energy Outlook 2021, India's oil demand rises by almost 4 million barrels per day [mb/d) to reach 8.7 mb/d in 2040, the largest increase of any country. A CNC lathe is a device that revolves material around a stationary cutting tool and a central spindle, which is typically employed to accomplish or create exact circular forms that have an inner diameter (ID) and an outer diameter (OD). The oil and gas sector depends on a variety of CNC machining equipment such as lathe machines which allow for the precise and effective machining of lengthy workpieces. For the oil sector, CNC lathes are ideal as they can be employed for a variety of jobs involving the machining of plastic and metal, and the manufacture of complex equipment parts such as pumps, valves, and hydraulic cylinders. For this reason, CNC lathes are a necessary tool in the oil business to ensure proper dimensional tolerances, thread pipes, and machine shaft ends, and to assist in the production, maintenance, and repair of the equipment and infrastructure.
