The analysts forecast the Machine Tools market in the U.S. to grow at a CAGR of 2.32% for the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increase in private non-residential fixed investment.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: One of the major trends is the increasing technological advancement. Vendors are designing new machine tools, which provide ease of operation, less time consumption, and are highly efficient, such as electrical discharge machines, ultrasonic, and electronic beam technologies.

According to the report, one of the major drivers is the increase in private non-residential fixed investments. Private vendors are increasingly making investments in the construction of infrastructure, which uses machine tools, thus there is an increasing demand for such tools in the U.S. Another major driver is the increasing growth of fabricated metal products.
