In 2018, dies & molds dominated the market, in terms of revenue, accounting for over 36.8% share of the global tooling market.

The tooling industry is the backbone of every manufacturing plant. The quality of tools used during the manufacturing process will directly affect the quality of the end product manufactured by the end-user industries such as automotive, aerospace, marine, defense, plastics, electronic & electrical, and many others. The basic tools required in any manufacturing process are dies & molds and machine tools such as drills, grinders, metal forming, boring machines, forges, jigs & fixtures, and gauges. Moreover, the market is directly affected by fluctuations and developments occurring in the end-user industries. For instance, increase in demand of consumer electronics is increasing the production of electronic and electrical devices, which in turn boosts the market growth. However, adoption of 3-D printing is expected to restrain the growth of the market. 

The developments in automation and penetration of IoT in the manufacturing process of tooling are anticipated to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the tooling market. The automation facilities provide better productivities and enhanced product qualities, which also develop the quality of the end product. Furthermore, growth in power generation using renewable resources fuel the requirement of tools for the manufacturing of new parts in the wind power plants such as jet propellers, engine bodies, windmill shafts, and many others.
