By volume, demand for press brake machines is projected to increase at 4.8% CAGR in the first half of the forecast period and 5.3% in the second half, owing to rising manufacturing and construction activities in several industries such as automotive, metal fabrication, transportation, construction, and electronics.
Sheet metal used in automobile production, electrical goods, residential & non-residential construction activities, and mass transit vehicle manufacturing are a few of the end-use applications of press brake machines. Press brake machines are widely used for precision bending of sheet metals, which are then treated and used in a variety of industries.
Sales of hydraulic press brake machines are projected to increase at 6.1% CAGR by volume. These machines employ hydraulic fluids in one or more cylinders to drive the press brake's ram down onto the component being shaped. Hydraulic press brake controls are more precise than mechanical press brake controls, and they can be adjusted to accommodate different bend depths.
Due to high ease of operation, modern design, and digital controls, automatic press brake machines accounted for a higher market share of around 43.1% in 2021; however, demand for semi-automatic press brake machines is projected to expand at a volume CAGR of 5.5% through 2032.
“High Demand for Electric Press Brake Machines at Manufacturing Sites”
Operators of press brake machines confront a variety of challenges, including regular material setup, hydraulic viscosity changes, and oil leaks. Furthermore, end-user operating expenses increase due to regular oil changes and maintenance activities.
As a result, end users are looking for machines with bending technology that streamline workflow, reduce energy consumption, lower operating costs, increase production rates, and reduce carbon footprint. Electric press brake machines offer faster bending speeds and shorter cycle times, as well as lower maintenance costs, resulting in increased demand for these machines.
“Increasing Manufacturing Activities across End-use Industry Verticals”
In terms of end-use applications, the press brake machine market is a fragmented space. Increasing manufacturing of automobiles, mass transit vehicles, electronic products, and the construction of residential and commercial spaces are all key elements driving industry growth.
The transportation sector, which includes the automotive, aerospace, ships, and rail industries, will benefit from increased government spending and varied policies.
Sheet metal pieces used in the design and construction of residential and non-residential spaces can be bent accurately with a press brake machine system. In the electronics manufacturing sector, sheet metal is used to make enclosures, housings, brackets, and other small components.
Sheet pressing machines are widely used in the construction industry to bend metal sheets to form the required shape of structures and dwellings.
“Increasing Construction Activities in Power & Energy Sectors”
Metals, as a critical component in the construction of power and energy infrastructure, necessitate significant sheet metal operations, such as bending, cutting, and punching. Supportive regulations and investments in clean energy projects are helping expand the power & energy sector's infrastructure.
Government regulators are pushing energy efficiency initiatives to promote the electricity and utility industry, which is expected to increase the consumption of press brake machines across regions.
