Electro-Discharge Machines (EDM) to 2018: Report Provides Market Analysis Based on Machine Types, End-Users and Geographic Region

DUBLIN, IRELAND--(Marketwired - March 6, 2014) - Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Electro-Discharge Machines (EDM) to 2018" report to their offering.

EDM technology includes three main types of machining: wire, small-hole, and RAM-type (or sinker). Each of these find application in very specific areas, and several alternative technologies are competing for market share in the advanced machining sector. Advancements in high-speed machining continues to temper the momentum in the die sinker market, and laser ablation is also making inroads into applications typically accomplished by chemical etching.

This report provides a complete analysis of the global market for RAM and Small-Hole EDM Machines. It also covers the global market size of the machining industry including wire EDM, electro-chemical, laser machining, and traditional mechanical machining. Market trends and forecasts are provided for the years 2012-2018.
