According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled,"Drilling Machine Market by Type and Application: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2018 - 2025,"the drilling machine market accounted for $16.54 Billion in 2017, and is expected to reach $28.76 Billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 7.1% from 2018 to 2025. In 2017, Asia-Pacific dominated the global market, in terms of revenue, and is expected to grow faster compared to North America.
Drilling machine is used to enlarge or drill a cylindrical hole in a workpiece. It is composed of four major componentsthe head, table, column, and base. The motor is attached on the head and spindle is fixed within the quill, which is moved by either manual or automatic feed. The table is mounted on the column, and is used to support the workpiece. The cast iron base supports the entire structure. These machines are basically used for gun drilling, trepanning, BTA drilling, ejector drilling, counterboring, and pull boring.
The market for drilling machine market is primarily driven by increased demand for fabricated metal products and minimized labor cost. However, fluctuation in the prices of the raw materials majorly restricts the growth of the market.
The deep hole drilling machine segment secured the highest share in the drilling machine market in 2017. The multiple spindle drilling machine industry is expected to grow at a highest CAGR during the forecast period. In terms application industries, heavy equipment sector is expected to contribute the highest market share in the coming years, as this industry needs to displace heavy vehicle and material handling equipment parts. Moreover, increase in emphasis on military and defense sector is expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities to small players in the developing economies.
In 2017, Asia-Pacific registered the highest share in the drilling machine market, and is expected to continue this trend during the forecast period, owing to presence of the key manufacturing companies in the region.
