While the global economic crisis slashed demand for the Nonferrous Metal Rolling and Alloying industry from almost all of its major markets, leading revenue to contract by close to one-third, revenue rebounded strongly in line with a recovery in global industrial production. In the five years to 2021, the industry will continue to depend on demand from downstream manufacturers. Nonferrous metal manufacturers will be better positioned to take advantage of improving economic conditions and demand from developing economies will increase, bolstering revenue growth. Nonetheless, rising domestic demand will also cause import competition, threatening industry expansion.
Companies in this industry produce semifabrications from nonferrous metals, except copper and aluminum. Primarily, they roll, draw, extrude and alloy shapes from purchased nonferrous metal. Companies also recover nonferrous metals and alloys from scrap.
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.
