Metal Folding Machine Market - Introduction

Metal folding processes can be called bending, edging, braking, and flanging. Metal folding is an important stage in the metal fabrication process. Metal folding covers all the processes such as folding, bending, and pressing of sheet metal into a predetermined shape. Metal folding machines are used to create various products such as enclosures, pipes, and boxes. A sheet metal can be reshaped in many ways. This includes rolling, bending, shearing, and indenting. Advanced metal folding technology includes high-speed bending cells and automated panel bender machines. For instance, sheet metal fabricators adopt advanced 3D CADCAM systems to develop and design complex folded components.

Metal Folding Machine Market Dynamics

Emerging Technologies and Rapid Automation to Drive Metal Folding Machine Market

Rise in demand for advanced metal folding technology in the automotive industry is expected to boost the demand for metal folding machines in the next few years. Increase in disposable income of consumers and economic expansion are anticipated to propel the production of vehicles in the next few years. This, in turn, is estimated to drive the metal folding machine market across the globe. Growth in penetration of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines is another key factor projected to propel the demand for metal folding machines across the globe. CNC metal folding machines are automatic machine tools that allow for precise operation of stored programmable commands. On the other hand, an operator decides numerous machine parameters in conventional machines, including the depth and feed of cut according to the requirements. Integration of Internet of Things (IoT) in manufacturing is likely to be a major trend augmenting the market in the next few years.

High Cost of Automatic Metal Folding Machines to Hamper Market

High cost of automatic metal folding machines compared to manually operated machines and with volatility in construction activities due to the sudden economic turmoil across the globe are expected to hamper the global metal folding machine market in the near future. Automatic metal folding machine increases productivity; however, many small and medium sized enterprises across the globe cannot purchase these machines because of their high costs. This reduces the efficiency in penetration of manufacturers in the market, thereby restraining the global metal folding machine market.
