The Cutting Tool and Machine Tool Accessory Manufacturing industry experienced adverse effects from the economic downturn. During the recession, negative economic conditions reduced demand for machined parts at tool and die businesses, causing demand for custom work to decline. As the economy improves, downstream demand will continue to rise, spurring marginal revenue growth. Nevertheless, stagnant product innovation will hamper overall growth.
This industry primarily manufactures metal-cutting and metal-forming machine tools, accessories and attachments. Firms may also provide custom fabrication and repair work on a contract basis.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
