Impression Die Forging Market Overview:

The Global Impression Die Forging Market size was $18,293.6 million in 2017, and is projected to reach $27,163.6 million in 2025, growing at a CAGR of 5.2% from 2018 to 2025.Impression die forging, also referred to as closed die forging, is a metal deformation process that employs pressure to compress a piece of metal to fill an enclosed die impression. In most of the impression die forging processes, a succession of impression dies are used to modify the material into the final desired shape or form. This process involves two dies, each containing a single impression or a series of multiple impressions that cut into each die. Typically, the bottom die is fixed in a set position and the upper die is generally raised at a height. While they are separated, desired quantity of metal is heated to a particular temperature and is positioned between them. Extreme amount of force is then applied to deform the metal, and it is forced to flow into the die chambers while the excess is removed. Two types of pressing equipment are generally used for impression die forging process: mechanical forging and hydraulic forging.

The global Impression Die Forging market for impression die forging is driven by the improving global economic conditions, innovations in components and manufacturing process, and developing end user industries. The market growth is restrained by the rising input metal and labor costs and high cost of impression die forging process.
