Industrial sewing machines are in high demand in the modern world. Numerous manufacturing objects are equipped with overlock, interlock models, flat-seamers, and other sewing items. Semi-automatic and fully-automatic units simplify and speed up shirring, sewing, scissor-cutting, and stitching processes.
Industrial Sewing Machine Market in the Period of Coronavirus Pandemic
In spite of the coronavirus outbreak, the sewing machine market is developing and continues its modernization. According to the latest research data, the most demandable type of the industrial sewing machine is of robotic type. It allows manufacturers using pre-programmed patterns for various sewing purposes:
- Decorative stitching;
- Label setting;
- Fabric folding;
- Scissors cutting;
- Other industrial processes.
The first industrial sewing machines with fully-automated options appeared in 2018. This year became the year of introducing robotic-based models into the global sewing industry. In 2019 the market of fully-automatic industrial sewing machines increased significantly – Asian, American, and European brands started to offer models with software automation.
The growth of the market became slower in 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic. Nevertheless, the rampant development in the previous 2 years, makes available market size estimation and its segmentation as well.
Segmentation of the Modern Market: Fully-Automatic Industrial Sewing Machines
The main aim of the modern robotic sewing models is to turn most of the handle-hand processes into automatic ones. All the available fully-automatic industrial sewing machines are distinct in:
- Type (general, special-task, decorative machines);
- Application (apparel, footwear, garment, others);
- Brands (global industrial players like Brother, Singer, Juki, Gemsy, Lowry, Sunstar, etc.).
With the help of the following partitioning data, it is possible to analyze the global marketplace area and the way of its expansion. The maximal growing point of the market is expected to be in 2025.
Experts predict that more than 45% of global textile, footwear, clothing, and accessory manufacturing objects will be equipped with robotic models. Statistics say that one modern fully-automatic sewing machine allows manufacturers to replace about 10 workers and speed up the ongoing processes by 25%.
