Forge forward: Industry revenue will rebound moderately moving forward with renewed demand

The Metal Stamping and Forging industry has experienced moderate volatility over the five years to 2017. Despite strong demand from the aerospace manufacturing market during most of the five-year period, weakened demand from other markets, particularly oil and gas machinery and agricultural machinery manufacturing, has hurt manufacturers of forged ferrous and stamped metal products. Furthermore, the recent downturn in the world price of steel, aluminum and most other metal inputs has pressured domestic operators across all product segments to lower selling prices, subsequently placing downward pressure on industry revenue. Over the next five years, the industry is expected to rebound moderately...purchase to read more.

    Stamped metal productsStamped metal products are the largest industry offering and are expected to account for 32.5% of industry revenue in 2017. Metal stamping includes a variety of metal-forming manufacturing processes, such as blanking, punching, piercing, forming and drawing, to transform flat metal sheets into various shapes. Each of these processes is typically performed on cold-rolled steel sheet purchased from upstream steel or aluminum manufacturers (see IBISWorld reports 33111, 33122 and 33131). The process, which typically uses a machine press or stamping press, could be a single-stage operation or it could occur through a series of stages. Stamping also includes hard tooling, which is used to make a high volume of parts for one configuration. Met...purchase to read more.

    What's in this report

    What is the Metal Stamping & Forging Industry?

    Operators in this industry forge, stamp and rollform ferrous (iron) and nonferrous metal products for use by other industries. Forged metal is compressed in hot or cold temperatures, while stamped metal is placed into a press to make sheets; rollformed metal is bent into shape on a set of rolls. The industry also includes powder metallurgy companies. This industry excludes the stamping of coins, cans and automotive products.
