Growth Returns to the Computer Numerical Controls (CNC) Market

Computer numerical control (CNC) is an application-specific motion control system for industrial machinery, with a primary focus on the machine tool market.  The largest segment of the machine tool market is metal working machinery; however, the application of CNC systems has continued to expand into other areas such as additive manufacturing, 3D printing, laser cutting, water-jet, wood, plastics, and glass sectors.  This offers good growth opportunities for CNC suppliers and OEMs alike.

The machine tool industry faced a difficult business environment in 2015 and 2016.  However, in 2017, the strong recovery of the Chinese market after two weak years and stable economic development on a global scale helped exceed the expectations. 

The CNC market witnessed remarkable growth in 2017.  A key driver for this growth was the rapid development in global machine tools market, the primary market for CNC systems.

ARC research says that the demand for CNC systems will continue to grow, but at a slower pace compared with the 2017 growth level.  The key drivers for this growth will be emerging economies and an anticipated surge in infrastructure investments.
