Global Automotive Parts Aluminum Die Casting Market
The global automotive parts aluminum die-casting market was valued at USD 26.98 billion in 2015 and is projected to reach USD 35.57 billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 6.91% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2022.
Transportation alone accounts for over 25% of the aluminum end market share. With the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards becoming increasingly stringent, automobile manufacturers have been forced to continually seek better ways to increase the fuel economy. Reducing the vehicle weight has been the prime agenda to improve the gas mileage and the most popular practice for achieving the same has been replacing steel parts with aluminum parts.
Automotive Parts Aluminum Die-Casting Market- Technological Developments
According to a recent study, aluminum is now regarded as the leading material used in the production of engine and wheels in automobiles. Audi has been manufacturing an all-aluminum structure for its A8 model for nearly 20 years. Ford is developing an all-aluminum structure for its F-150 pickup. Along with the chassis, employing aluminum die-casting parts has also been the latest trend and it was observed that cutting down the weight of the vehicle by 15% could enhance the fuel economy by 25%.
Increased automation in the die-casting industry has spiked the productivity and a parallel demand for die-casting from the automotive industry has been attracting the attention of automotive manufacturers towards highly durable aluminum die-casting parts.
The automobile industry is highly dependent on the environmental protection agency regulations, owing to the high emissions of automotive units. The move by EPA to raise the mile per gallon standards to 35.5 mpg by 2016 and then 54.5 mpg by 2025 has actually helped the die-casting industry, as the auto industry concluded that the only way they can get to those mileage standards is by light-weighting the vehicles. Aluminum and specifically aluminum die-castings in many of the power train and engine areas is the one important way in which they could achieve this. This is one of the major reasons for the predicted growth of the industry in the area of structural die-castings as well. Furthermore, aluminum is becoming an increasingly popular material for this purpose due to its ability to be easily recycled. Approximately 75% of aluminum consumed can be reused, and reclaimed aluminum can be recycled indefinitely, making it the most popular material for automotive part die-casting.
The global automotive parts aluminum die-casting market is segmented on the basis of production process type, application type, and geography.
On the basis of production process type into pressure die-casting, vacuum die-casting squeeze die-casting and semi-solid die-casting.
On the basis of application type, the market has been segmented into body assemblies, engine parts, transmission parts and others.
On the basis of geography, the market has been segmented into North America (U.S., Canada, Mexico, others), Europe (U.K., France, Germany, Russia, Italy, others), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, South Korea, others), South America (Brazil, Argentina, Chile, others) and Middle East & Africa (South Africa, Egypt, UAE, Saudi Arabia, others).
North America is the largest market for automotive aluminum die-casting globally. This huge market in the region was mainly due to large-scale domestic production, government initiative and availability of resources.
