|Restraints & Challenges:||
Global Cold Heading Machine Market Trends:
Rise in adoption of electric vehicles is a rising trend in the market
Cold headed machines offer significant advantages in manufacturing of electrical and power components utilized in EVs, and other components, tools and products for automotive industry. Cold heading is considered to be highly efficient compared to other techniques such as machining. It lowers scrap by 80% to 100% in several cases. Majority of the components and fasteners in electric vehicles are precious metal, and cold heading provides significant cost saving as well as faster manufacturing time. Thus, growing adoption of EVs is creating high demand for cold headed machines.
Changing regulations and policies regarding emission is a major trend in the market
Due to changing policies for emission and strict regulations for emissions are promoting use of electric vehicles all over the world. Due to the stringent regulations consumers hesitate to purchase vehicles having engines causing more emissions, and are preferring the purchase of EVs having novel technologies. Thus, changing emission policies are indirectly creating demand for cold heading machines, which in turn is anticipated to propel growth of the market in the near future.
Global Cold Heading Machine Market Restraints:
Recent decline in automotive industry to impede growth of the market
