9 Percent Annual Growth Projected for CNC Tools

The global CNC-machine-tools market is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of more than 9 percent from 2017 through 2021, according to a market-research report by Technavio, which shows metal fabrication shops, automotive, aerospace, electronics and shipbuilding as the primary sectors for the technology.

The report credits six-axis CNC machines and new milling tools for driving the global CNC machine tools market: "The advent of the six-axis CNC machine has redefined machining operations. The capability of the machine to turn both ends of the fixture enables the raw material to be processed into a finished product without the use of multiple fixtures and other machining activities."
