The global market for Electrical Discharge Machines (EDM) is projected to reach US$7.5 billion by 2024, driven by continuous technology innovations, recovering plant upgrade projects against the backdrop of improving manufacturing outlook and rising plant capacity utilization rates; and increasing use of complex materials in production such as alloys, composites and ceramics which call for EDM machining. In the medical device manufacturing end-use sector, use of EDM based machining is benefitting from the growing demand for bio-implants in the field of orthopedics, cardiology, dentistry, and ophthalmology. Few of the benefits of EDM driving its adoption include no-contact and no-force process; suitability for machining fragile parts; low wear and tear; and ability to achieve complex shapes. Asia-Pacific represents largest and the fastest growing market worldwide with a CAGR of 8.3% over the analysis period. Major factors driving growth in the region include rapid industrialization, increasing government focus on infrastructure development, expanding manufacturing base, rising income levels and strong consumer demand for manufactured goods; growing strength of the Chinese EDM industry which is the largest in the world; and mushrooming of small and medium job shops in the region as a result of increased production outsourcing to low cost Southeast Asian countries.
