The Non-Ferrous Metal Casting industry forms a very small component of Australia's primary metal and metal product manufacturing sector. The industry has shrunk in size over the past five years as challenging market conditions have taken their toll. Industry revenue is expected to contract by an annualised 7.4% over the five years through 2014-15, to reach $90.0 million. This includes an expected contraction of 8.9% in 2014-15, as demand from all of the industry's key markets remains soft.
The industry consists of firms that are involved in manufacturing finished non-ferrous metal products by casting molten non-ferrous metals in moulds. It also includes companies involved in cleaning and finishing cast non-ferrous products. The term non-ferrous indicates metals other than iron and alloys that do not contain an appreciable amount of iron. The industry excludes aluminium smelting or castings activities.
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.
