Industrial Fasteners

Industrial Fasteners

The largely mature US fastener market is expected to post gains of 2.7% per year through 2023, largely due to pricing growth and an increase in durable goods manufacturing. Competition in this industry is declining, as the shift toward lightweighting has largely already occurred, and further technological development will be necessary before alternative joining technologies can challenge fasteners in end uses where they are harder to replace.

Key growth areas in the US industrial fastener market include aerospace-grade fastener types, which will see gains from a boost in civilian and military aircraft production; and fasteners for motor vehicles and machinery applications. The report also includes an assessment of the impact that global tariffs may have on prices going forward.

Industrial fastener products covered in this report include:
Standard-grade
Aerospace-grade
Additional breakouts are provided based on the physical design of the fastener, including:
Externally threaded (such as screws and bolts)
Internally threaded (such as nuts, locknuts, threaded inserts, and nut/washer assemblies)
Nonthreaded (such as rivets and washers, nonthreaded pins, bushings, retaining rings, stud receivers, and plastic fasteners)

Demand is also broken out by market:
OEM, including motor vehicles, machinery, aerospace equipment, fabricated metal products, electrical and electronic products, furniture and wood products, and other manufactured goods
Maintenance and repair operations
Construction

Scope of the Report
This Freedonia industry study analyzes the US industrial fasteners market. It presents historical demand data (2008, 2013, 2018) and forecasts (2023) by product (standard-grade or aerospace-grade), physical design (externally threaded, internally threaded, nonthreaded), and market (OEM, maintenance and repair operations, construction). The study also evaluates company market share and competitive analysis on industry competitors, including Agrati, Arconic, Berkshire Hathaway, Hilti, Illinois Tool Works, LISI, Stanley Black & Decker, and TriMas.
