Market Overview

The Automotive Die Casting Market is valued at USD 40.23 Billion in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 58.4 Billion by 2026 registering a CAGR of over 6.19% during the forecast period (2021-2026)

The COVID-19 pandemic had a profound impact on manufacturing operations and the market witnessed a slowdown due to supply chain disruptions and trade restrictions worldwide. However, as economic activities resumed across the world market to witness steady growth during the forecast period.

The market studied is largely driven by supply chain complexities in the die casting industry, expanding the automotive market, increasing penetration of die casting parts within the current automotive industry, and future use of die casting in electric vehicles.

The automotive industry witnessed dramatic growth over the past couple of years. Owing to new innovation, it has never restricted itself. At present, automotive manufacturers are striving to meet the targets for highly tensile chassis frames and strong automotive parts, which are long-standing, lightweight, and cost-effective.

CAFÉ standards and EPA policies, to reduce automobile emissions and increase fuel efficiency, are driving the automobile manufacturers to reduce the weight of the automobile, by using lightweight non-ferrous metals. Subsequently, the use of die-cast parts as a weight reduction strategy is acting as a major driver for the market studied.

Rules imposed by the OSHA and the initiatives by the NADCA to improve the technical workforce in the die casting industry are expected to improve the overall production of the market studied.

The automobile industry is highly dependent on the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) regulations, owing to the high emissions of the automotive units. The move by the EPA to raise the miles per gallons (mpg) standards to 54.5 mpg by 2025, has actually helped the die casting industry, as the automotive industry concluded that the only way to get to those mileage standards is by manufacturing lightweight vehicles.

Key Market Trends

Vacuum Die Casting is Expected to Witness a High Growth Rate

There have been significant developments and improvements in the conventional die casting process. Currently, the ultra-high-vacuum die casting process is applied for producing large and thin component parts, such as space-frames and pillars, which are usually welded to automobile chassis.

Electrical and hydraulic components in an automobile work simultaneously. Reliability and quality are given prime importance in transmission parts. The transmission system in an automobile is a complex combination of mechanical functions. It is prone to extreme conditions and environments. This enhances the importance of integrity. Valve bodies, stators, and clutch pistons are some of the commonly die casted transmission parts in the automotive industry.

It has been accepted that ultra-vacuum die casting produces better weldable automotive products than most of the die casting processes. However, products produced in this process are large and require huge-sized die casting machine, like 2,500-4,000 metric ton of die clamping force. This impacted the popularity of the ultra-high-vacuum die casting process among OEMs and large die casters.

However, vacuum die casting production process eliminates the air from the mold and allows the front of molten metal to merge freely without forming any shuts or pores, which is a major issue in pressure die casting process.

A sudden shift from pressure die casting to vacuum may not be possible due to the higher productivity and ease of manufacture of the automotive die casting parts, which employ pressure die casting method. However, this change is gradual and expected to continue to increase, during the forecast period.

The Asia-Pacific Region is Dominating the Market

The Asia-Pacific region dominated the market studied and accounted for over 55% of market share in 2020, and it is also expected to witness the fastest growth rate during the forecast period.

The Chinese automotive industry accounted for 27.3% of the total demand for casting in the region. The Chinese economy is growing, and the disposable income of middle-class consumers is also increasing. This, in turn, reflects positively on the growing demand for the vehicle. Over the past five years, owing to the low production costs in the country, the production for vehicle production has gone up drastically.

Passenger car sales in 2020 have witnessed a 6.8% decline, to 19.29 million units in China as compared to the previous year. This decline has continued across the Asia Pacific region during 2020 due to the economic slowdown and the outbreak of the Corona Virus during the first quarter of 2020. However, with several initiatives taken by the country to boost the automotive industry, passenger car sales are expected to increase over the forecast period, which in turn is driving the demand for die casting market in the country.

Competitive Landscape

The global market for die casting is highly fragmented with many regional small-medium scale players from the developing countries entering the market.

Major recognized players, such as Nemak, Georg Fischer Automotive, Ryobi Die casting, Rheinmetall AG, Form Technologies Inc. (Dynacast), and Shiloh Industries, together, accounted for over 16% of the overall global market share.

Koch Enterprises (Gibbs Die Casting Group), Linamar Corporation, Bocar Group, Endurance Group, Sandhar technologies, Sundaram Clayton Ltd, and Rockman Industries are few other key players in the market.

These key players have focused their revenues on R&D, mainly to develop better production processes and alloys. This strategy may assist in the production of premium quality die cast parts for the global automotive and industrial sectors. Key players have also expanded their reign globally by various mergers, expansions, partnerships, joint ventures, and acquisitions. For instance, Rheinmetall AG development activities were very diverse in 2018. In the field of aluminum casting, the company focused on the development and production activities relating to engine blocks, structural and chassis parts, and components for electromobility with their joint venture partner HUAYU Automotive Systems Co. Ltd (HASCO).

Recent Developments

  • In March 2021, Sandhar Technologies Limited announced that it has entered into a non-binding memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Unicast Autotech (P) Ltd for the purpose of acquiring an aluminium die casting Business.
  • In February 2021, Endurance Technologies commenced commercial production at its new plant in Vallam, Vadagal, Kancheepuram, Tamil Nadu. The plant will manufacture aluminium die-castings and carry out the integration of disc brake components with control brake modulators for supplying machined aluminium castings to Hyundai, Kia, Royal Enfield.
  • In December 2020, Ryobi Aluminium Casting (UK) Ltd announced that it has secured a significant new multi-million-pound contract with an emerging transmission supplier specializing in electrified drivetrains for the automotive market. The deal is worth almost GBP 15 million annually, the deal will see the manufacturer produce 150,000 clutch and transmission cases per year for new hybrid vehicles commencing 2023.
