According to analyst Technavio , the global sheet metal market size is expected to increase by US $ 76.39 billion between 2021 and 2026 , expanding at a CAGR of 4.14 %. The market is driven by the growth in the machine tools market owing to factors such as rising automotive production ; increasing investments in renewable power projects and technological innovations across various sectors such as semiconductors , heavy equipment and robotics .
“ The adoption of 3D ( 3-dimensional ) technologies for sheet metal production will have a positive impact on the market and is expected to contribute to its growth significantly over the forecast period . Over this period , 2021-2026 , the 3D-printing market in the aerospace industry is expected to reach nearly US $ 3 billion . The APAC region led the sheet metal market in 2021 followed by Europe ; North America ; the Middle East and Africa ; and South America respectively ,” said the analyst .
In this issue of ISMR , we have added a new research category to our news coverage to unveil the latest global sheet metal research projects ( page 18 ). We highlight new forecasts , challenges and changes in global energy markets for manufacturers ( page 24 ). We also spotlight a selection of new stamping processes , technologies and press models ( page 46 ) and outline metal bonding benefits ( page 20 ).
We chronicle a UK sheet metal subcontractor ’ s path to Industry 4.0 on page 28 and analyse MENA markets for manufacturers on page 32 . We also uncover the potential of hollow-profile hybrid technology ( page 52 ) and Augmented Reality for operators ( page 44 ), as well as pinpointing what to look for when sourcing large sheet metal enclosures ( page 38 ). Robot welding and fibre laser cutting also come under the spotlight .
