The prominent end-use industries of aluminum casting include automotive, aerospace, industrial machinery, and construction among others. In automotive industry, aluminum castings are preferred for powertrain components, door and hood components, transmission cases, wheels and suspension components owing to its light weight.
The global aluminum casting market is estimated to be valued at US$ 87.11 Mn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.0% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Increasing adoption across automotive industry is driving the growth of global aluminum casting market. With increasing focus on fuel efficiency and emission reduction, automotive manufacturers are incorporating light weight aluminum casted components to reduce overall vehicle weight. According to International Aluminum Institute, aluminum can reduce vehicle weight by 25-35% as compared to steel, which further helps improve fuel efficiency by 12-15%. Moreover, aluminum provides benefits of corrosion resistance, strength, and durability and easy recyclability. These benefits have resulted in growing preference for aluminum parts among automakers. Additionally, robust growth in electric vehicles that uses more aluminum parts is also augmenting the demand. However, volatile aluminum prices and availability issues pose challenge to market growth.
The global aluminum casting market can be segmented based on process type, end-use industry and region. Based on process type, the die casting segment dominates the market and accounts for more than 55% share of the overall market. Die casting process allows manufacturing of complex shapes and parts with close dimensional tolerances in high volumes, which makes it suitable for automotive applications.
