The Automobile Metal Stamping industry was hard hit by the recession as demand for new cars plummeted in 2009, though industry operators experienced a rapid recovery in the past five years. Consumers released pent-up demand for new cars, and automobile manufacturers ramped up their production accordingly, bolstering revenue for this upstream industry. Revenue will continue expanding in the next five years, albeit at a more moderate rate, as the industry will begin the period from a much stronger position than in 2009. However, increased fuel efficiency standards, from regulators and consumers alike, will dampen demand for large vehicles and encourage car manufacturers to use less of the metal produced by this industry, posing a potential threat to revenue.
Companies in this industry manufacture metal vehicle parts like body panels, trim pieces, bumpers and other structural components from sheet metal using either a machine press or stamping press.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
