Report key highlighters

  • The metal casting market has been analyzed in both value and volume. The value of metal casting market is analyzed in millions while the volume is analyzed in kilotons.
  • The metal casting market is consolidated in nature with few players such as Ahresty Corporation, Aisin World Corp. of America, Georg Fischer Ltd, NEMAK, and Rheinmetall Ag that hold significant share of the market.
  • Countries such as China, U.S., India, Germany, and Brazil hold a significant share in the global metal casting market.

Metal casting is a process that involves pouring molten metal into a mold to create a 3D metal part. The mold contains a hollow cavity of a desired geometrical shape, and the molten metal is allowed to cool down to form a solidified part. Metals such as cast iron, stainless steel, manganese, aluminum and others are widely used for metal casting process. It is employed in various end-use sectors including automotive, electrical and electronics, building and construction, heavy machinery and equipment, aerospace, and others.

Metal Casting Market

Rise in population coupled with rapid urbanization have surged the growth of the architecture & construction sector in both developed and developing economies such as the U.S., China, India, and others, where metal castings are used for providing structural supports.

This factor has fueled the demand for metal casting for the automotive end-use industry.

Metal Casting Market by Region

The Asia-Pacific metal casting market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period and accounted for 63.8% of the metal casting market share in 2021. This is attributed to the rise in building & construction, automotive, electronics, and other sectors, have enhanced the performance of the metal casting market in the Asia-Pacific region. In addition, China's industrial sector is increasing rapidly, which in turn has enhanced the performance of the metal casting market in the region. Furthermore, countries such as India, Australia, Indonesia, and Malaysia, have witnessed a rapid increase in building & construction sector where metal casting are employed to provide structural supports to both residential and commercial building & construction sites, such as hotels, hospitals, homes, flats, warehouses, showrooms, garages, and offices.

    IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON THE GLOBAL METAL CASTING MARKET

    • The metal casting market is expected to recover rapidly post COVID-19 situation due to its increased dependency over automotive, aerospace, marine, and other sectors. For instance, according to an article published by Financial Express, the Indian automotive industry registered a growth of 15% in 2021, and is expected to grow at an average annual growth rate of 18.6% by 2025. This is expected to enhance the performance of the metal casting market post- COVID-19 scenario.
    • Furthermore, as the lockdowns have been lifted during the second-half of the pandemic, the manufacturing sectors have resumed their operations where metal castings are widely used for designing and production of metal parts and equipment of various dimensions. This factor is projected to aid the growth of the metal casting market during the forecast period.
    • Moreover, the increasing adoption of working online or work from home mode have surged the demand for a wide range of electronic devices such as computers, tablets, smartphones, and others where metal casting process is used for designing and producing outer shell and internal electronic parts of these devices. For instance, according to an article published by the Times of India in January 2021, the Indian smartphone market registered 27% year-on-year growth in 2021 as compared to 2020 owing to increasing shipments of smartphones in 2021. This factor has augmented the growth of the metal casting market.
