Industrial Casting Market in the US 2015-2019

About industrial casting

Industrial casting is a manufacturing process in which molten or liquid metal is poured into a mold that contains a hollow cavity of the desired shape to form geometrically complex parts. A mold can be of various materials such as sand and ceramic plaster, and it is like a cup on which the molten metal is poured. The most common metals used for casting are iron, aluminum, magnesium, zinc, steel, and copper-based alloys.

Technavio's analysts forecast the industrial casting market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 7.54% over the period 2014-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Industrial Casting Market in the US 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Industrial Casting Market in the US: Alcoa, Amsted Industries, Chrysler Group and Precision Castparts

The other prominent vendors are: Bharat Forge, Georg Fischer, Schuler Group and ThyssenKrupp

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Many developed countries are applying stringent environmental regulations for manufacturing sectors. It is mandatory for manufacturers of automobiles that offer high fuel efficiency to reduce GHG emissions. Therefore, OEMs and their suppliers have intensified their R&D to reduce the weight of core components of automobiles, and improve fuel efficiency and power. This has also led to the use of non-ferrous materials such as aluminum and magnesium, which provide better structural strength and are lighter than traditional metals. These non-ferrous products are usually casting outputs that determine the specific weight and shape as per the end-user's requirements.”

According to the report, industrial casting manufacturers in the US have implemented many advanced technologies, which enable the use of genetic algorithms and neural nets for selecting optimum pressure die casting based on end-user requirements. Various industries require castings with precise dimensions, i.e., size, shape, and weight. As a result, metal casting manufacturers are implementing simulation-based models to facilitate the development of perfect castings during the manufacturing process. These models also reduce operational costs and help avoid wastage of resources. The use of simulation-based castings has become a standard in the casting industry in the US.

Further, the report states that the high cost of raw materials is affecting market growth.
