The Nut, Bolt, Screw and Rivet Manufacturing industry has faced subdued domestic demand conditions and increasing pressure from imports over the past five years. As a result, revenue is expected to fall at a compound annual rate of 1.8% over the five years through 2014-15. Although revenue has grown in most years over the past five-year period, a massive 17.7% drop in 2010-11 has caused overall industry revenue to decline. Revenue decreased significantly in 2010-11 due to falling demand from downstream manufacturers for nuts, bolts, screws and rivets that are used as intermediate inputs.
Companies in the industry primarily manufacture metal nuts, bolts, screws, rivets, fasteners, metal washers or other precision turned metal items.
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.
