Aluminum Casting Market

Aluminum casting is a process of forming aluminum casts of fixed dimensions. Aluminum casting is used for making aluminum objects by pouring molten aluminum into an empty shaped space. The metal then cools and hardens into the form given to it by this shaped mold. Aluminum casting is used in various end use sectors including automotive & transportation, electrical & electronics, building & construction, industrial, aerospace, and others. 

Increase in investments in building infrastructure in countries such as the U.S., China, Japan, Mexico, and India, have led the building & construction sector to witness a significant growth where aluminum casting process is widely employed for deigning and production of both interior and exterior metallic structures, window frames, and others. Furthermore, factors such as increasing disposable income, technological upgrades, and spurring rise in original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have led the automotive & transportation sector to witness a significant growth.

Aluminum castings are widely used in automotive sector for producing various automotive parts of different shapes. For instance, aluminum die castings are used in producing alloy wheels, body frames, pistons, engine blocks, valve covers, carburetors, fan clutches, and others. This is anticipated to fuel the growth of the aluminum casting market during the forecast period.

Moreover, the increase in government spending for manufacturing advanced aircrafts with modern armor facilities have surged the utilization of aluminum casting process for producing various aircraft components. This may act as one of the key drivers responsible for the growth of the aluminum casting market for defense sectors. Furthermore, countries such as the U.S., China, India, and others are constantly engaged in expanding their defense systems by introducing various high-tech equipment where aluminum casting is widely used for producing outer shell, fasteners, and other parts. This may propel the growth of the aluminum casting market in the defense sector.

However, aluminum casting involves several processes such as melting of metal, transferring the molten metal to mold cavity, and solidification of molten metal. These processes require a relatively large amount of heat energy. Furthermore, the overall process consists of different sophisticated equipment that are fabricated to work at high temperature application. These factors make aluminum casting an expensive process which in turn may restrain manufacturers with less investment potential to enter into aluminum casting market.

On the contrary, emerging economies such as China, India, and others are witnessing a rapid surge in demand for various consumer goods which in turn has increased the set-up of various manufacturing units. For instance, according to a report published by the China Industrial Production Index in 2023, China’s industrial production rose by 1.3% in 2022.

Aluminum castings are often considered to be the top metal of choice among manufacturing industries owing to its corrosion resistance, high strength, and low-density properties. These factors make aluminum castings best-suited for manufacturing a wide range of industrial components, outer coverings, structures, and others. Moreover, aluminum is a good conductor of heat attributed to which aluminum castings are widely used in industrial vessels. This factor may increase the demand for aluminum casting in the growing industrial manufacturing sector; thus, creating remunerative opportunities for the aluminum casting market.

The aluminum casting market is segmented on the basis of process, end user, and region. On the basis of process, the market is categorized into die casting, sand casting, and permanent mold casting. As per end user, it is divided into transportation, industrial, building & construction, and others. Region-wise, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.

Aluminum Casting Market by Process

In 2022, the die casting segment was the largest revenue generator, and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period. Die casting is one of the aluminum casting processes where molten metal is forced under high pressure into the mold cavity. This mold cavity is made by using hardened tools steel dies that have a specific shape and size of the desired casting. Generally, die castings are made from non-ferrous metals such as zinc, magnesium, lead, and others.

They are used to manufacture a wide range of consumer, commercial, and industrial products such as automobiles, toys, electronic devices, and others. Moreover, the increasing establishment of industries in both developed and developing economies may enhance the demand for die casting for producing various instruments, measurement vessels, and other industrial machinery parts. This is anticipated to increase the adoption of die casting among the growing industrial facilities; thus, fueling the market growth.

Aluminum Casting Market by End-user

By end user, the building and construction segment dominated the global market in 2022, and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.9% during forecast period. The increasing population coupled with rapid urbanization have surged the demand for both residential and commercial facilities where aluminum castings are used for structural support purposes. This may act as one of the key drivers responsible for the growth of the aluminum casting market in the growing building & construction sector. Furthermore, the increasing building & construction activities based on modern theme architecture has surged the potential application of various aluminum castings for use in interior and exterior structural support applications. This may further aid the growth of the aluminum casting market during the forecast period.

Aluminum Casting Market by Region

The Asia-Pacific aluminum casting market size is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 5.9% during the forecast period and accounted for 57.8% of aluminum casting market share in 2022. The rising electrical & electronics, building & construction, transportation, industrial, and other sectors have enhanced the performance of the aluminum casting market in the Asia-Pacific region. China's electronic sector is increasing rapidly which has forced the glass like carbon manufacturers to produce high-quality aluminum casting in the region.
