The country is set to become a key player in the global machine tools industry and is likely to see substantial high-end machine tool manufacturing. With emphasis on Make in India and manufacturing growth, for which the machine tools sector serves as the mother industry.

The Indian Machine tool Industry has around 1000 units in the production of machine tools, accessories/attachments, subsystems and parts. Of these, around 25 in the large scale sector account for about 70 percent of the turnover and the rest are in the MSME sector of the industry. Approximately, 75 percent of the Indian machine tool producers are ISO certified.
