Increasing Demand for Customized Mass Production will Aid the Growth of the Market
Milling machines produces customized products in bulk quantity. The consumer market is looking for products with differentiation and with the latest updates in the hardware and technology. This has resulted in an increased and continuous production process for various industries such as electronics, automobiles, general manufacturing, etc. Furthermore, companies are looking for seizing every opportunity in order to have increased market share; hence they are looking for continuous improvement in their manufacturing facility for increased output. Moreover, the connected industry, industry 4.0, automation, and robotics are emphasizing the companies to have an automated production process resulting in the demand for milling machines.
Single-Function and Cost Associated with Installation and Maintenance to Limit the Growth
Milling machines are an important aspect of the machine tools market but provide limited milling functions as drill, lathe, etc. Due to this limitation, the industries are required to install other machines as well, which increases the capital investment required. Moreover, multiple machines have different wear and tear schedules thereby resulting in increased maintenance costs to the company. On the other hand other types of machine tools such as machining centers provide multiple functions in which milling is also included; hence, the customers tend to opt for machining centers instead of milling machines. These factors are anticipated to restrict the growth of the market.

Vertical Mills Segment to have Moderate Growth Fueled by their Multiple Functions
Based on type, the market is divided into vertical mills, horizontal mills, & others. The vertical mills segment is expected to grow moderately over the anticipated period, owing to its multiple functions in various industries. Furthermore, this type of mills can be installed quickly and have high energy efficiency and superior performance as compared to horizontal mills. Moreover, horizontal mills provide a more refined surface finish, thus limiting its use at precision engineering and automotive industries. Horizontal mills are used for systematic purposes and complicated parts; hence, they have comparatively extended tool life. Additionally, other types of mills that are included in the scope are mills with different axis options, gantry mills, etc.. These types of mills are comparably compact in sizes, hence are installed and operated by small and medium scale industries.
Precision Engineering to Exhibit High CAGR Backed by Rising Demand from Emerging Economies
Based on application, the market is divided into automotive, general machinery, precision engineering, transport machinery, & others. The precision engineering application segment is expected to grow with substantial CAGR during the forecast period compared to the other applications. This is owed to the function of both horizontal as well as vertical types of mills in the industry. Moreover, the increasing demand from the emerging economies for consumer goods and tools is also expected to fuel the growth. Transport machinery & general machinery segments are expected to have a slow growth rate during the forecast period. Both applications have constant requirements of the milling machine, but due to the slow growth rate of the industry, it is impacting the growth of the market. The automotive application of milling machines is expected to grow at a slow but steady pace. The automotive industry is going through a change that will also impact the demand for the milling machine. Other applications include electrical, construction equipment, and power & energy, which constitute a minor part of the market.
