About Ultra Hard Material Cutting
UHMC machines are equipment comprising of electrical discharge machining (EDM) and laser cutting machines, which are used to cut ultra-hard materials (whose hardness value exceeds 40 gigapascals), such as polycrystalline diamond or polycrystalline cubic boron nitride. The manufacturing industry has experienced radical changes in processes that are used for fabricating and engineering products. Earlier, goods were produced manually. Subsequently, with advances in technology, machines were used to build goods.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global ultra hard material cutting machine market to grow at a CAGR of 10.07% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global ultra hard material cutting machine market for 2017-2021. The report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AAEDM, ALPHA LASER, AMADA AMERICA, Anstar, Beaumont Machine, Belmont Equipment & Technologies, Chevalier Machinery, CHMER EDM, Current EDM, Cutlite Penta, CY Laser, DANOBATGROUP, DPSS Lasers, Fives, GF Machining Solutions Management, Hypertherm, JENOPTIK, Jet Edge, Kent Industrial USA, Laser Photonics, MC Machinery Systems, Methods Machine Tools, ONA Electroerosión, PRIMA INDUSTRIE, Sodick, Trotec Laser, Universal Laser Systems, and Vytek Laser Systems.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Increasing number of mergers and acquisitions. Several local and international vendors are engaged in intense competition, making the market highly fragmented. Therefore, major players in the market are resorting to acquisitions as a strategy to increase their presence within the market. Strategic alliances and mergers and acquisitions are being implemented to access untapped markets. Large and emerging contenders in the market are looking for mergers with smaller players to establish their market presence.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Rise in automation. Companies are increasingly opting for automation as a way of meeting anticipated quality standards. Also, due to the increase in globalization and population, there is a rise in demand for automation techniques. Investment in the process automation market in the US is increasing and is projected to reach $30 billion by 2021, indicating a growth rate of approximately 5%. This growth is specifically related to sectors, such as technology, software, hardware, services, and the communication protocol used in automation.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Growing need for after-sales services. The increased adoption of cutting technology in manufacturing and other industrial processes can be attributed to its enhanced productivity and efficiency. However, to ensure that its efficiency and productivity is not compromised with, a laser cutting machine needs continuous maintenance and servicing, which is inhibiting its adoption among end-users. Even a few hours of machine downtime can result in heavy losses for customers. However, some vendors are unable to provide the rigorous maintenance and support required. This has led to customer dissatisfaction.
