Milling Cutter Market: Introduction
- A milling cutter is a cutting tool used for milling operations in a milling machine and in machining centers. Milling cutters are available in a variety of shapes and sizes. The tool can be selected on the basis of cutting angle, number of cutting surfaces, and coating. Ball cutter, roughing end mill, end mill, etc. are some of milling cutters available in the market. Milling cutters come in two types of material, which are high speed steel (HSS) and solid carbide. HSS milling cutters are mostly used and cost effective but solid carbide milling cutters though more costly last longer and perform better. Milling cutters are commonly utilized in the mechanical, automotive, and automobile sectors. The milling cutter market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period.
Key Drivers and Opportunities of the Global Milling Cutter Market
- Worldwide usage of machine tools in processing of finished products has seen a rise in recent years and has extended to the highest level due to massive demand for high quality products. These products are manufactured with the help of milling cutters for shaping, turning, and similar operations leading to the rising use of milling cutters. The market for milling cutters is expected to witness significant growth from processing industries during the forecast period due to the above mentioned factors.
- Increasing demand for factory automation is driving the use of smart production technologies in production processes and development attributed to benefits such as increased productivity and improved product quality. Labor shortages can be easily handled. Furthermore, quality assurance plays an important role in the manufacturing industry which is directly linked to the equipment used. Introduction of real-time quality assurance process using an automated virtual metrology (AVM) system has been made possible by implementation of Industry 4.0 solutions. The milling cutter market penetration is expected to thus increase as a result of real time quality assurance.
Restraints of the Global Milling Cutter Market
- Several industries are focusing on automating their production process, but this comes at a high cost in terms of training, machine purchase, and maintenances. Also, changing cost of raw materials is one of the major factors affecting the growth of the milling cutter market. Furthermore, companies are experiencing severe financial crisis as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and as a result they are being forced to downsize and reduce manpower. This is predicted to have a negative impact on company revenue in the coming years. These are the factors restraining the growth of the milling cutter market.
Asia Pacific to Hold Major Share of the Global Milling Cutter Market
- In terms of region, the milling cutter market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America
- The Asia Pacific region is expected to dominate the global milling cutter market during the forecast period. Asia Pacific has a number of developing countries which are experiencing rapid growth and development in the industrial sector with rapid developments in automotive, shipping, aerospace industries, etc. Milling cutters are predominantly used in automotive, aerospace, and shipping industries and rapid growth of these industries is expected to drive the demand for milling cutters in the region. Moreover, most of the leading machine tools manufacturing industries are based in Asia Pacific, due to which the region is further expected to dominate the milling cutter market during the forecast period.
