Industrial Castings: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) November 13, 2014
Follow us on LinkedIn – Casting represents a metal modification process indispensable to the manufacture of products with complex shapes. While casting can also involve use of plaster, plastic resin or concrete as material, it is most often associated with use of metal as molten material. The most common metals used for making castings include iron, magnesium, steel, aluminum, zinc and copper-based alloys. Given its role in production of a range of semi-finished and finished goods, including jewelry, valves and other components for heavy machinery, automobiles, and aircraft, metal casting is of critical importance to the manufacturing sector. Metal castings are used for producing over 90% of all manufactured goods and capital equipment worldwide.
Automotive industry represents one of the major end-use sectors for industrial castings with cars and light trucks increasingly being assembled with a range of metal cast parts and components. Steady increase in automotive production as a result of increase in demand for passenger cars, particularly in developing markets such as China and India will fuel demand for a range of automotive parts and components, production of which will need industrial castings. Modernization and upgradation of assembly line machinery and equipment in automotive plants will also create demand for industrial castings. Increase in the number of vehicle miles traveled, parallel increase in the wear and tear of auto-parts and subsequent rise in replacement demand and production of aftermarket automotive parts will also help drive opportunities for growth. Light metal cast parts are expected to continue to replace iron castings in automotive applications.
Continued strengthening of manufacturing activity in emerging markets, such as India, and other developing countries in Asia-Pacific such as Taiwan, Singapore, Korea and Indonesia, is also poised to drive growth in the market. As stated by the new market research report on Industrial Castings, Asia-Pacific represents the largest market worldwide. The region is also forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 7.2 % over the analysis period. Growth in the market is driven by regional powerhouses, China and India, which continue to witness steady outsourced manufacturing activity. Ferrous Castings represents the largest product market. Non-Ferrous Castings is projected to witness steady growth led by growing demand for lightweight aluminum castings in automotive and other transportation applications.
