The new woodworking machines market research from Technavio indicates neutral growth in the short term as the business impact of COVID-19 spreads.

"One of the primary growth drivers for this market is the Adoption of Automated Woodworking Machines," said a senior analyst for the Industrials industry at Technavio.

The increasing focus toward ensuring flexibility and highly personalised products in the woodworking industry has increased the need for highly specialised woodworking machinery in the production process. This leads to the integration of automation technologies into traditional woodworking machinery. With the use of automated and IoT-enabled equipment, this integration is gaining prominence among all functions within and outside the company floor. Automated standalone machines are also flexible enough to find easy integration with other machinery and monitoring systems in the wood industry with the help of software; this enables the large industrial plants to partially shift toward the automated production process hence ensuring high performance and flexibility of production process with low human resource requirement.

As the markets recover, Technavio expects the woodworking machines market size to grow by US$679.38 million during the period 2020-2024.
