Market Overview

The Die Casting market was valued at USD 57.12 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to reach USD 81.48 billion by 2026, by registering a CAGR of about 5.92% during the forecast period.

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 resume across the world, the market is expected to witness steady growth over the forecast period.

Expanding automotive market, increasing penetration of die casting parts in industrial machinery, the growing constructional sector, and growing deployment of aluminum casts in the electrical and electronics industry anticipated to propel demand in the market during the forecast period. The CAFÉ standards and EPA policies to cut down automobile emissions and increase fuel efficiency are driving the automakers to reduce weight of the automobile by employing lightweight non-ferrous metals.

Subsequently, employing die-cast parts as a weight reduction strategy is acting as a major driver for the former market in automotive segment. However, crunch in raw material supply, volatility in raw material prices, and environmental regulations on emission for the metallurgy industries are acting as major barriers for the market growth.

Asia-Pacific region anticipated to hold largest market share in the die casting market due to rise in the demand for automobiles in countries such as China and India, and rise in the use of aluminium die casting for various application in this region. North America also expected to witness significant growth in aluminum die casting market due to growing output from construction and automotive sector in this region.

Key Market Trends

Aluminum Anticipated to Play Key role in Die Casting Process

Currently, nearly 30-35% of the auto components in a vehicle are made of aluminum alloys, which are mostly developed using high pressure die casting process. The demand for high-pressure aluminum die casting parts has increased across numerous industrial applications over the past years, as the process manufactures lightweight parts and provides high flexibility for complex shapes.

The rise in technological advancements and innovation anticipated to propel the adoption of high-strength and lightweight castings, specifically in the auto sector, offering manufacturers new opportunities in adopting aluminum for die casting parts. In addition, key players in the market have already started focusing on capturing growing market share in the region. For instance,

  • In March 2021, SandharTechnologies has entered a Memorandum of Understanding with Unicast Autotech to acquire its AluminiumDie Casting Business.

Moreover, a rise in the replacement of iron and steel with aluminum in the automobiles sector and rise in the investment in automobile and infrastructure sectors are expected to further propel the market. The growth of the aluminum die casting market is likely to improve during the forecast period to meet the increasing demand for lightweight components and high conductivity metal parts from the automotive and non-automotive sectors.

Die Casting Market Key Trends

Asia-Pacific Region Likely to Witness Significant Growth
