The sewing machine industry is a global industry that is experiencing renewed growth. In developed markets, growth rates are projected to outpace GDP growth, according to Global Industry Analysts, Inc., the leading industry data source. Growth in these markets is driven by the millennial generation that is increasingly attracted to personalization, crafts, and self-expression. In developing markets, the industry is expected to grow at 4% annually, fueled by the emerging middle class and the “need to sew” segment that uses sewing machines to support the household.


In 2021, SVP Worldwide was acquired by Platinum Equity (, a global investment firm with more than $25 billion of assets under management and a portfolio of approximately 50 operating companies that serve customers around the world.
