Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Machine Tools Market in Japan 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Machine Tools Market in Japan: Amada Machine Tools, JTEKT, Komatsu and Yamazaki Mazak

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Doosan, Fives Group, Flow International, Gleason, Makino Milling Machine, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Okuma, Tongtai Machine & Tool, and TRUMPF Group.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The continuous development in R&D has resulted in introduction of advanced machine tools especially CNC machines. CNC machines are highly efficient and productive, hence incorporation of new technologies now mainly happens in these machines. Vendors have started offering their services through mobile devices using apps and other support functions via the Internet. As manuals of CNC machines are cumbersome, having a physical copy of the manual is proving difficult and becoming unpopular in the shop-floor operations. Therefore, many vendors are providing apps that help to understand the operation and working of CNC machines.”

According to the report, increased development of NC and CNC machines has been observed in the machine tools market in Japan. This has led to a shift from conventional machines, which are controlled manually, toward new and advanced machines operated using programmed commands and computers. NC and CNC machine components are designed using CAD and CAM, delivering a highly accurate machine that can operate efficiently and effectively. End-users are increasingly adopting NC and CNC machines that increase product quality and reduce human effort and time.

Further, the report states that China is one of the major importers of machine tools from Japan. But the recent slowdown in China will negatively affect Japan's machine tool industry.
