Metal Boring Machines Procurement Category Market Research Report from IBISWorld has Been Updated

Share Article

The average price of metal boring machines has been rising moderately over the three years to 2014 due to rebounding demand; meanwhile, prices have also experienced moderate volatility due to significant fluctuations in the world price of steel. For these reasons and to help procurement professionals make better buying decisions faster, business intelligence firm IBISWorld has updated a report on the procurement of Metal Boring Machines in its growing collection of procurement category market research reports.

Prices of metal boring machines are anticipated to continue increasing, but volatility will subside

Metal boring machines have a buyer power score of 3.1 out of 5. This score is reflective of moderate negotiating power for buyers, which stems from low price volatility, moderate risk in the supply chain and low market share concentration. Current vendors in the market include Powermatic and Technox. Although the price of steel, a key input, has been highly volatile during the past three years, the average price of metal boring machines is expected to grow at a moderate annualized rate. Buyer power is further aided by the machines' slow depreciation, which reduces their risk as an investment.

Furthermore, adds IBISWorld research analyst Agiimaa Kruchkin, “high-quality metal boring machines can achieve a significant value on the resale market, favoring buyers.” Buyer power has been challenged to an extent due to rebounding demand from industrial production and manufacturing on the back of economic recovery, in turn driving average prices up.

Vendors of metal boring machines face moderate financial risk due to steady downstream demand. In addition, the supply chain poses medium level of risk, mainly stemming from volatility in the price of steel. “Typically, input price hikes get passed down the supply chain, eating into vendors’ margins,” says Kruchkin, “which then restricts buyer power due to limited leverage in negotiations.” Nevertheless, repeat customers can secure more favorable terms, especially on high-volume purchases.

In the three years to 2017, IBISWorld estimates that the average price for metal boring machines will continue growing at moderate rate. This price growth and moderate price volatility will stem from a lack of major price jumps for steel inputs, facilitating buyer power in the coming years.

IBISWorld Procurement Report Key Topics

This report is intended to assist buyers of metal boring machines. Types of metal boring machines include horizontal boring machines, jig boring machines, metal broaching machines, internal broaching machines, surface broaching machines and vertical boring machines.
