The global Cold Heading Machine Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 3557.05 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.5% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Cold heading machines are commonly used in metal forming processes like cold forward extrusion, cold backward extrusion, piercing, as well as cold upsetting and swaging. It forms various parts like bolts, screws, connectors etc from wire or blanks with high dimensional accuracy and finish by applying compressive forces without any heating process. This process helps in mass production of parts at lower cost.
Market key trends:
The cold heading machine market is driven by increasing demand across industries like automotive, fasteners, and engineering. Adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies has increased automation in cold heading process, improving production efficiency. Additionally, development of multi-station machines having automatic tool changing facility helps in mass production of complex parts with reduced changeover time. Growing popularity of electric cold heading machines over hydraulic and mechanical types due to lower energy consumption, noise and maintenance costs is another trend. However, high initial investment remains barrier for small manufacturers.
