The Metal Coating and Finishing industry has shone over the past five years. A range of metal products are used in downstream construction and manufacturing industries, and these goods typically require coating and finishing to make them more durable and to provide protection against rust and corrosion. Strong demand for these services from heavy and civil engineering construction markets has driven the industry's performance over the past five years, while demand from building construction and manufacturing industries has been more subdued. Overall, revenue is estimated to grow at a compound annual rate of 5.3% over the five years through 2014-15.
Companies in this industry are mainly engaged in engraving, polishing, heat-treating, plating, galvanising, anodising, colouring, plastic dipping, ceramic coating or finishing metals or metal products that customers supply. Firms that galvanise steel sheets or strips are excluded from the industry.
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.
