Metal Forging Market to Witness Two-fold Growth

Aircraft sales have witnessed a significant spurt in the recent past. Metal forging processes are increasingly being used to manufacture light-weight aircraft components. This is giving significant traction to metal forging market which is projected to register a stellar growth rate of more than 7% from 2019 to 2029. Growth of electric automobiles further adds to the demand for strong and durable forged components which will bolster growth of the market through 2029.

metal forging market opportunity analysis by application

Carbon Steel to be Lucrative Revenue Pocket

Owing to durability properties such as ductility, hardness, yield strength, and impact resistance, Carbon steel is expected to grow 1.9X during the forecast period. Manufacturers prefer carbon steel for a variety of products such as shafts, rails, gears, cars, cutting tools, and blades. Aluminum is the second most demanded metal forging raw material with a market share of more than 21%. Regulations pertaining to use of high-performance components in aerospace & defense industries are projected to drive the demand for Aluminum.

East Asia Leads, with Surging Demand for Metal Forging

East Asia has emerged as the leading region in global metal forging market. Immense support from the government of China on production of aluminum forged components plays a major role in the 41% market share accruing from this region. South Asia & Oceania follow East Asia come a close second in the metal forging market. This can be attributed to countries such as Singapore and Indonesia where the former is a mass-consumer of machine tools and the latter identifies vehicle manufacturing as a key industry both of which require metal forging capabilities to craft durable components.
