A stitching machine is a machine that is used to stitch fabric, leather, and other materials together with threads. It usually has a needle and shuttle to carry the thread and is powered by a treadle or electricity. There is a trend of inventions in the stitching process in the garment industry. Inventions such as vision sewing, pedal less sewing, digital feed systems in stitching machines, and voice-enabled stitching machines are changing the status of garment manufacturers. The stitching machine industry is switching its processes from manual to digital.
Key factors driving the stitching machine market are very high demand for apparel and accessories and an increase in the global population. Promotion of stitching machines through online channels, especially among youngsters and less experienced sewers, is estimated to offer attractive expansion opportunities to the stitching machine market. With the emergence of new technology, smart sewing machines are coming into existence. Smart sewing machines improve the quality standards of end-products. They also change the functionality of stitching machines by offering features such as touch screens, multi-needle machines, powerful motors, and LED lighting, which add value. Smart sewing machines are light in weight, durable, and consume less electricity, which is beneficial for both home and industrial stitching machines. Due to advancements in technology, robots are soon expected to become a part of the apparel making process. These factors are projected to drive the stitching machine market in the near future.
However, developing countries are still not adopting the latest technology because of the availability of cheap labor and high cost of initial investment in technology. Robots are expected to be utilized in cutting fabrics, but manpower is still required to feed fabrics into stitching machines. Moreover, duplicate products provided by small suppliers are available in the stitching machine market. These factors are projected to hamper the stitching machine market in the coming years. The global stitching market can be classified based on type, application, distribution, and region. In terms of type, the stitching machine market can be segmented into home stitching and industrial stitching. Home stitching machines are those that are typically used in homes by stitching enthusiasts. In terms of adaptability, home sewing machines are unable to work on heavier or thicker types of fabrics. Industrial sewing machines have more robust external motors and can therefore run for the entire working day and remain maintenance free for long periods of time. Based on application, the stitching machine market can be divided into apparel, accessories, bags, shoes, and others. In terms of distribution channel, the stitching machine market can be categorized into online & offline.
In terms of region, the global stitching market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. Asia Pacific is going to be the fastest growing market of stitching machine in the near future, followed by Europe, Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is a rapidly expanding region of the stitching machines market. Increase in the standards of living, rapid urbanization, and increase in demand for apparel are likely to propel the market in the region. China is a prominent manufacturer of stitching machines in the region. In Middle East and Africa region, because of awareness about technological development, product innovation and increase in per capita income are some of the significant reasons which is projected to show rapid growth in the forecast period.
