Metal Stampings, Forgings, and Castings: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) November 13, 2014
Follow us on LinkedIn – Metal stamping, forging and castings are important manufacturing processes that are critical to the production of a range of manufactured parts and finished goods. Metal stamping helps in transforming metals, typically flat metal sheets into desired shapes at ambient temperature by pressing, shearing, bending, folding and stretching. Forging, on the other hand, represents a process where compressive forces are applied on pre-formed metal blocks, typically heated to high temperature, to produce high-strength parts for a range of durable goods. Casting is a metal modification process that uses molten metal injected or poured into a custom mold where it solidifies and forms a molded product. Manufacturing plants related to heavy industrial machinery, automobiles, and household appliances, among others, are heavy users of metal stamping, forgings and casting technologies.
Growth in the market is influenced largely by the demand for manufactured durable goods such as automobiles, computers, and construction equipment, among others. This is because any increase in demand for manufactured durable goods warrants their increased production, involving processes such as metal stamping, forging and castings. Automotive industry represents a prominent end-use market with growth supported by the projected rise in demand for automobiles and automobile parts and components. Aluminum castings are especially poised to benefit, given the growing use of light-weight aluminum parts in automobile interior and exteriors. Projected rise in demand for and production of heavy industrial machinery against the backdrop of improving construction, mining and oil & gas activity is also expected to drive growth in the market. Increasing investments in renewable energy infrastructure and the ensuing development of clean energy infrastructure will spur demand for metal stamping, forging and castings in the manufacture of collecting towers, solar panels/photovoltaic cells, and turbines.
As stated by the new market research report on Metal Stampings, Forgings, and Castings, Europe represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 7.4% over the analysis period. Growth in the region is driven by steady manufacturing activity, particularly outsourced manufacturing in low-cost nations such as India, China, Korea, and Taiwan. Despite growing demand for Ferro-Alloy Castings, Non-Ferrous Alloy Castings market is fast gaining ground given its ability to meet manufacturing challenges involved in developing complex structural shapes.
