Foundries Global Market Report 2018

Starting Price : $ 4000.00 | Pages : 125 | Published : February 2018 | SKU CODE : 3170 | Format :

Foundries market include iron foundries, steel investment foundries, steel foundries, non-ferrous metal die casting foundries, aluminum foundries and other non-ferrous metal foundries. These establishments pour molten metal into molds to manufacture castings. They also perform operations like cleaning and deburring, on the castings they manufacture.

The global foundries market was valued at $222.4 billion in 2017. Asia Pacific was the largest geographic region accounting for $79.1 billion or 35.5% of the global market. The USA was the largest country accounting for $64.7 billion or 29.1% of the global foundries market.

Computer-Aided Designs (CAD) programs is a major trend in the foundry market for enhanced productivity. This technology involves the adaptation of CAD files to guide additive manufacturing programs. This is similar to 3D-printing of bonded sand into optimally designed molds and cores. CAD programs help the companies in this market to optimize the casting designs.

The companies covered are Alcoa, Bharat Forge, Hitachi Metals, Precision Castparts, and AMCOL Metalcasting.

The countries covered are USA, China, Germany, Brazil, Japan, UK, Spain, Russia, France, Australia, Italy, India and rest of the world.

The foundries market is segmented into Ferrous Metal Foundries; and Nonferrous Metal Foundries.

Ferrous Metal Foundries comprises establishments primarily engaged in pouring molten iron and steel into molds of a desired shape to make castings. Establishments in this industry purchase iron and steel made in other establishments.

- Iron Foundries include establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing iron castings and further manufacturing them into finished products are classified based on the specific finished product.

- Steel Foundries comprises establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing steel castings (except steel investment castings). Establishments in this industry purchase steel made in other establishments.

Nonferrous Metal Foundries comprises establishments primarily engaged in pouring and/or introducing molten nonferrous metal, under high pressure, into metal molds or dies to manufacture castings.

- Nonferrous Metal Die-Casting Foundries comprises establishments primarily engaged in introducing molten nonferrous metal, under high pressure, into molds or dies to make nonferrous metal die-castings. Establishments in this industry purchase nonferrous metals made in other establishments.

- Aluminum Foundries (except Die-Casting) comprises establishments primarily engaged in pouring molten aluminum into molds to manufacture aluminum castings. Establishments in this industry purchase aluminum made in other establishments.

- Other Nonferrous Metal Foundries (except Die-Casting) comprises establishments primarily engaged in pouring molten nonferrous metals (except aluminum) into molds to manufacture nonferrous castings (except nonferrous die-castings and aluminum castings). Establishments in this industry purchase nonferrous metals, such as copper, nickel, lead, and zinc, made in other establishments.
