Over the past five years, the Metal Plating and Treating industry grew as a result of expanding manufacturing and construction activities. These downstream manufacturers then supply the manufacturing sector, which, in turn, supplies consumers such as construction companies. This industry is expected to experience a strong year in 2017; however, the expansion is magnified because construction activity contracted significantly over 2015 and 2016, depressing industry revenue. Over the next five years, this industry is projected to remain steady as demand from the manufacturing and construction sectors hold their current patterns. Construction is anticipated to grow, leading to consistent demand for zinc-coating services.
This industry provides coating, engraving, heat-treating and metal processing services. Other activities include tempering, brazing, plating, polishing, sand blasting and colouring metals.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
