The Structural Metal Product Manufacturing industry has faced several major challenges over the past five years. Demand for a range of industry products from downstream residential, commercial, industrial and institutional building construction markets has been subdued. As a result, industry revenue is expected to fall at a compound annual rate of 2.0% over the five years through 2014-15. Structural metal products manufactured by the industry include garage doors, window shutters, metal doors, door and window frames, railings, steel grating, and curtain walls.
Companies in the industry primarily manufacture architectural steel, wrought iron or other metal products. Items that maintain the structural integrity of buildings are not included and fall into other industries such as structural steel fabricating. The industry also excludes structural products that are made from aluminium.
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.
