Global metal casting market by automotive sector

The metal casting market by the automotive sector was valued at 42.47 million metric tons in 2015. The buoyancy of the automotive sector in developed countries such as the US and Germany in the post-global recession period has seen the sales volume of passenger cars and commercial vehicles returning to the pre-crisis level. Factors such as significant reduction in the workforce and closure of manufacturing plants have not had any effect on production levels. Restructuring of production processes have made this possible. Therefore, automotive companies are no longer in the red but are showing increased profitability.

Global metal casting market by electrical and construction

The metal casting market by electrical and construction industry was valued at 28.22 million metric tons in 2015. Electrical industry is expected to grow at a moderate rate in EMEA and the Americas during the forecast period. The demand for metal casting from the electrical industry will arise from developing countries in APAC such as Indonesia and India due to a rise in industrialization and rapid infrastructural developments put in place to cater to the rising population of the region.

Technavio researchers predict that the global construction output will experience a meteoric growth and account for close to USD 14.5 trillion by 2025, growing at more than 70% when compared to 2015. This growth will subsequently augment the global metal casting market until 2020.

Global metal casting market by industrial machinery

The metal casting market was valued at 22.39 million metric units in 2015. Fall in oil prices is affecting direct as well as indirect demand for industrial machinery. The world economic outlook report published by the IMF in April 2015 highlights worsening operating conditions in some developed and developing countries. This will adversely affect industrial activities, posing a major problem for the growth of the machinery industry.

The world economy is likely to grow 3.5% in 2015 and 3.8% in 2016. While advanced countries are likely to have a growth rate of 2.4% in both 2015 and 2016, developing countries are projected to grow 4.3% in 2015 and 4.7% in 2016. These growth rates will have an impact on the demand for machinery, thereby boosting the demand for metal casting.
