Metal Plating & Treating in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Metal Plating & Treating in the US

Over the five years to 2018, revenue for the Metal Plating and Treating industry has risen slightly despite uneven demand conditions from the industry's key end markets. Steel prices, which fell significantly both prior-to and early-during the five-year period, resulted in mixed demand from key downstream customers. While high downstream demand from the Steel Framing industry buoyed revenue for some industry operators, declines in demand from the Steel Rolling and Drawing industry resulted in declining revenue. Furthermore, input volatility pressured industry revenue for the rest of the period. However, revenue increased overall during the period. Additionally, industrial production is forecast to continue expanding, which will stimulate demand for industry services. As a result, industry revenue is projected to increase over the five years to 2023.
