Hydraulic Tool Holders to Register Healthy Growth

The market, on the basis of tool holder type, has been segmented into collet chucks, end mill holders, hydraulic tool holders, milling chucks, shell mill holders and shrink fit holders. In terms of value, the collet chuck segment is expected to dominate the market and grow at a value CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period.

The hydraulic tool holders segment is expected to gain significant traction during the forecast period. The hydraulic fluid present in tool holders eliminates vibrations by absorbing them. The hydraulic tool holders segment is projected to grow at a prominent value CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period.

Rapidly Expanding Automobile Industry to Play a Crucial Role in Overall Growth of Tool Holders Market

The market for automotive is expanding rapidly. Growth in infrastructure-related industries, such as energy, railway and road construction, in countries such as India, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam, will also give a boost to the market.

This will drive the overall tool holders market as these tool holders are required during the manufacturing of engines, transmission components, turbochargers, gears, brake rotorsbearings, and other components.

On the basis of these factors, it is expected that the market for tool holders will continue to grow at a significant pace annually in developing countries. As a result, companies are opening new centers to strengthen their customer support structure in these markets.

Increasing Penetration of Laser Cutting Technology May Hamper Tool Holders Market Growth

Aerospace and automotive manufacturers are increasingly shifting to fiber lasers to tackle manufacturing challenges. In areas where precision is important, fiber lasers make reliable and stable equipment as they offer best beam quality for material processing applications.

Compared to traditional manufacturing processes, fiber laser equipment offer improved energy efficiency, lower maintenance requirements, smaller machine footprint, faster cycle times for high-volume productions and improved machine lifetime.

Consequently, process speed can be maximized and material and operation costs are minimized. Thus, the growing adoption of Laser cutting technology will act as a challenge for the growth of the tool holders market.

Need for Skilled Professionals for Operation and Maintenance

Tool holders are highly used in CNC machines, lathe machines and drillers. Operators must be skilled and trained, otherwise there are chances of accidents. That apart, a significant increase in operation time can also be expected, which impacts a company’s income.

Moreover, for the maintenance and installation of tool holders, trained labor is mandatory to ensure that preventive maintenance has been done properly and machines operate to their full potential after the maintenance cycle.
