Global Forging Industry 2016-2020 Market Share and Size, Trends and Growth, Analysis and Forecast
Market outlook of the forging market

Technavio predicts the global forging market to exhibit a healthy CAGR of around 8% during the forecast period. Forging is an appropriate substitution to the casting methodology as it ensures greater efficiency, reliability, and precision. Custom forging accounts for the largest segment. In North America, this segment achieves sales figures worth $6 billion annually. Some of the major end-users of the forging industry include automotive, aerospace and defense, agriculture, construction, mining, general industrial equipment, and material handling equipment to name a few.

This industry research report outlines the automotive sector as the major end-user for the forging market. Characteristics associated with forged parts such as reliability, strength, and economic viability have increased the importance of the use of forged parts in this sector. But with the automotive industry reaching a mature stage in the forging market, it is expected that other non-automotive sectors will mostly contribute to the growth of the global forging market until 2020.
