The global tooling market size was valued at $212,500.0 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $439,994.9 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 7.5% from 2021 to 2030. 

Tooling is the process of producing or acquiring the manufacturing components required for bulk production of parts used in bigger machines such as automobiles, trucks, heavy engineering components, and others. It includes production of molds and dies (presses), forging, gauging, jigs & fixtures, and cutting tools for the manufacturing of different components such as automotive parts, turbines, propellers, plastic components, and others. 


The designing and manufacturing of these tools directly affects the production quality of the end-user industry. Moreover, every manufacturing company requires tooling to conduct the production process of parts manufactured for assembling the machine; therefore, the tooling industry is termed as the backbone of the manufacturing industry. The tooling  market is directly affected by fluctuations and developments occurring in the end-user industries. For instance, increase in consumption of consumer electronics and electrical devices drive the growth of the tooling market to sustain high production demand for the electronic and electrical device manufacturers. Furthermore, rise in focus on product customizations fuels the requirement of new molds and dies, which are specifically designed for the manufacturing of products such as automotive engines, fuel tanks, turbines, propellers, shafts, and others; thereby, driving the global tooling market growth. 

Moreover, growth of the renewable energy systems such as wind power energy generation plants, solar energy generation plants, hydro-electricity plants, and others require sophisticated and properly designed die molds, measuring devices, and machine tools to produce the parts and machines. Thus, growth in renewable sources industry is expected to drive the growth of the global tooling market.

On the contrary, fluctuation in raw materials prices is likely to hamper the demand for dies and molds to manufacture the detailed parts in the high-end manufacturing industries such as aerospace and automotive.

In addition, the current market scenarios such as the China and the U.S. trade war and production cuts in the automotive industry in India restrain the market growth. However, new advancements such as penetration of automation and artificial intelligence are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for growth of the market during the forecast period. Moreover, the plastic industry is anticipated to provide growth opportunities, owing to new developments in bio-degradable polymer material. 

The automotive segment of the market accounted for over half of the global tooling market share in 2020, owing to increase in production of light vehicles followed by growing focus of manufacturers to increase different varieties of tool production in automotive industry. The electronics & electrical industry is expected to be the fastest growing segment by 2030, owing to increased consumption of electronics in normal household activities.

The novel coronavirus has rapidly spread across various countries and regions, causing enormous impact on lives of people and overall community. Originating as a crisis to human health, it now poses significant threat to worldwide trade, economy, and finance. Attributed to continuous lockdown in major countries, the COVID-19 pandemic has halted production of many items in the tooling business. Market players can afford complete lockdown only for a limited period, after which they would have to alter their investment plans. Furthermore, number of COVID-19 cases is expected to reduce in the near term as vaccines for COVID-19 have been introduced in the market. This is further expected to lead to re-initiation of tooling companies at their full-scale capacities, which would aid the market to recover by the start of 2022. After COVID-19 infection instances start to decline, equipment and machinery producers must focus on protecting their staff, operations, and supply networks to respond to urgent emergencies and establish new methods of working.
