LONDON -- Technavio, a market research company, has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global 5-axis CNC machining centers market report (see chart in gallery).
The global 5-axis CNC machining centers market is moderately consolidated and is characterized by a mix of global and regional vendors. In the present market scenario, vendors are constantly trying to invest in technology to develop innovative, energy-efficient, and advanced CNC solutions, which can be used in end-user industries.
“Local vendors operating in the market are unable to sustain profit margins, owing to the dominance of established global players. End-users are more inclined toward reputed players that provide high-quality and premium products at a higher price,” says Raghav Bharadwaj Shivaswamy, a lead automation research analyst at Technavio.
As the global 5-axis CNC machining centers market is in a growth phase, it is expected to see a number of mergers and acquisitions during the forecast period. The Asia-Pacific (APAC) region promises to be a high-growth market where vendors are expected to diversify in terms of their global presence.
According to Technavio, the top five 5-axis CNC machining centers market vendors include:
Haas Automation provides a wide range of CNC machines under four major categories, namely, horizontal machining centers, vertical machining centers, CNC lathes, and rotary products.
