Global Waterjet Cutting Machinery Market - Snapshot

A waterjet cutting machine is an industrial appliance which is used for the purpose of cutting various materials with the help of high pressure jet of water or mixture of water and abrasive material. Pure waterjet is used for cutting soft material such as wood and rubber whereas hard materials such as granite and metal are cut with the help of abrasive waterjet.

North America and Europe are pioneers in the field of waterjet cutting machinery. Waterjet cutting technology being versatile and environmental friendly is installed in various manufacturing plants across North America and Europe. New research and development are carried out in these regions to produce more efficient waterjet cutting machine, thus lowering maintenance cost.

The key strengths of waterjet cutting technology are versatility and environmental friendliness. Versatility of cutting any soft or hard material is the key strength of waterjet cutting machines. Water which is abundantly available is the key raw material of waterjet technology and hence no other raw material cost is involved. In terms of environmental friendliness, the technology is a cold cutting process and environment friendly unlike laser cutting or plasma cutting.

In terms of product type, waterjet cutting machinery is classified as 3D waterjet cutting, micro waterjet cutting, and robotic waterjet. Based on machine size, the market is classified as small size, medium size, and large size. On the basis of end-use application, the market is segmented into job and machine shop, exotic metal and non-traditional material cutting, machine manufacturing, ceramic/ stone cutting, glass/ metal artwork, gasket cutting, fiberglass cutting, surgical instrument manufacturing, foam product cutting, slitting operations, electronics and others. In terms of pressure range, the market is segmented into up to 4,200 bar and more than 4,200 bar. Further on the basis of horse power, the market is segmented into 0 to 50 HP, 51 to 100 HP, and others.

3D waterjet cutting can be a one dimensional waterjet cutting system, two dimensional waterjet cutting system, or three dimensional waterjet cutting system. One dimensional waterjet cutting systems generally use pure water for cutting metals which is also known as pure waterjet cutting process. Two dimensional waterjet cutting systems are the most popular. A three dimensional waterjet system has five axes and are generally used in heavy-duty applications. Three dimensional waterjet cutting can be used both as a pure waterjet cutting process or abrasive waterjet cutting process

EDM shops are seeing rising adoption of waterjet cutting machines as the cost of these machines is less compared to electrical discharge machining (EDM) cutting machines. In EDM cutting machines, the heat generated has a temperature ranging from 8,000 degree Celsius to 12,000 degree Celsius. On the other hand, waterjet cutting machines create no heat affected zones (HAZ). As waterjet cutting machines produce no HAZ, the metal that is cut is not thermally deformed. Thus, there is a rising demand for small, medium, and large waterjet cutting machines from EDM shops across the world.

Global Waterjet Cutting Machinery Market: Trends and Opportunities

Automation of manufacturing activities has created the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), and Industry 4.0 is the term given to current trends in industrial automation. China which is known as the factory of the world is increasingly using automation technologies to increase its industrial output. As per United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO)’s Industrial Development Report 2018, world manufacturing activity was valued at US$ 5,643.0 Billion MVA in 1990 which in 2000 increased to US$ 7,535.0 Billion MVA and in 2016 was US$ 12,316 Billion MVA. The MVA CAGR (1990-2000) was 2.9% and CAGR (2000-2016) was 3.1%. Globally, rising manufacturing activity is increasing the demand for waterjet cutting machinery.

Waterjet cutting technology is a cold cutting process and does not create any HAZ; hence,there is no thermal deformation of materials that are cut. These machines can perform minute cutting jobs with a high level of precision and minimum kerf. A kerf is defined as width of a cut made by a waterjet cutting machine. These machines are environment friendly as they cut materials without producing any heat, dust, or smoke like other cutting technologies such as laser cutting or plasma cutting.  Water a naturally found material, therefore no additional cost is involved in sourcing of raw materials. Due to all these factors, globally there is an increasing demand for waterjet cutting machines.
