Global Non-ferrous Casting Market 2016-2020

About Non-ferrous Casting

Metal casting is a manufacturing process in which metal (molten or liquid) is poured into a mold made of sand or ceramic plaster. The mold contains a hollow cavity of the desired shape, to form geometrically complex parts. The most common non-ferrous metals used for casting are aluminum, magnesium, zinc, and copper-based alloys. Metal casting finds application in vehicles; planes; trains; mining, construction, and electrical equipment; oil wells; pipes; toys; space shuttles; wind turbines; and nuclear plants.

The techniques for non-ferrous casting include die casting, centrifugal casting, high pressure casting, vacuum casting, and investment casting. Non-ferrous casting involves processes such as fluxing, metal refining, degassing, grain refining and pumping, and filtration.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global non-ferrous casting market to grow at a CAGR of 5.82% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Non-ferrous Casting Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Non-ferrous Casting Market: Alcoa, Amcol Metalcasting, Dynacast, Hitachi and Precision Castparts

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Georg Fischer and Schuler

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Growing environmental concerns have pushed many governments to implement stringent regulations on the manufacturing industry. For instance, in order to reduce GHG emissions, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has imposed several restrictions on power plants. Governments are also stressing on the use of high fuel-efficient vehicles to reduce GHG emissions. As a result, automotive OEMs are focusing on R&D to improve fuel efficiency and reduce weight of the vehicle.”

According to the report, the increase in usage of simulation-based castings will propel market growth. Castings are designed precisely using simulation to reduce wastage and costs. However, as metal casting is an energy-intensive industry, its energy requirements increase with the rise in the production of castings.

Further, the report states that the rise in energy cost for the production of metal castings poses a significant challenge for the growth of the market.
