Over the past five years, the Metal Stamping and Forging industry has grown aggressively, propelled by rising demand for forged and metal products in downstream markets and by higher selling prices charged by operators. In the coming years, the trends affecting the industry over the past five years are expected to continue. Demand from downstream industries, especially aerospace, will drive growth, as will a forecast resurgence in metal prices.
Operators in this industry forge, stamp and rollform ferrous (iron) and nonferrous metal products for use by other industries. Forged metal is compressed in hot or cold temperatures, while stamped metal is placed into a press to make sheets; rollformed metal is bent into shape on a set of rolls. Operators also manufacture powder metallurgy by blending and compressing fine metal powder into a desired shape. This industry excludes the stamping of coins, cans and automotive metal.
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.
