    Several automakers are attempting to reduce vehicle weight in order to improve fuel efficiency and lower emissions. Traditional metals such as cast iron are being replaced by lightweight materials such as aluminum to reduce overall vehicle weight while improving vehicle economy. Growing population, rising spending power, and technological advancements are likely to have a positive impact on global automotive production.

    Government rules imposed by regulatory organizations will encourage automotive manufacturers to reduce vehicle weight. To control CO2 emissions from automobiles, the European Union enacted a number of regulations and laws. As a result of these regulations, emissions have been significantly reduced in recent years.

    Covid-19 Impact

    The growth of the automotive industry was severely hampered by the outbreak of the pandemic. Automotive production facilities around the world were partially or entirely shut down as a result of severe lockdowns, resulting in a major drop in output. Furthermore, transportation constraints had a significant impact on the car industry's supply chain. The growth of the automotive casting market in 2020 was impeded by the grave turn of events triggered by the pandemic. The market gathered momentum slowly and steadily as lockdown limitations and transit bans were lifted in the second half of 2020. However, it will take a long time for the market to fully stabilize and reach peak growth rates.

    • Rest of the World 

    By Material Type

    The market is bifurcated into iron, steel, aluminum, and others. Aluminum is likely to remain the most utilized material for automotive casting in the foreseeable future. Aluminum’s use in vehicle production has been steadily increasing over the last few decades, and this trend is expected to continue in the coming years. Aluminum is one-third the weight of steel and has a lower density. Each kilogram of aluminum used in a car reduces the overall weight of the vehicle by about one kilogram. It's also extremely pliable and corrosion-resistant.

    By Process Type

    The market is segmented as sand casting, die casting, investment casting, and others. The die-casting segment is expected to remain the most preferred process type during the forecast period. The process is used to manufacture components that require high dimensional accuracy and surface quality. It's mostly used to cast non-ferrous metals including aluminum, magnesium, and zinc. It's ideal for mass production, and the parts created with this process are quite strong. Because of their weight-saving properties, aluminum die-cast parts are majorly employed in the automotive sector.

    By Application Type

    The market is segmented into engine, transmission and suspension, brakes and wheels, and others. Among these application types, the engine application segment is likely to remain the biggest demand generator for automotive casting during the forecast period. Since the engine is the heart of the vehicle, its efficiency is critical. Engine components require a high level of dimensional accuracy in order to perform at their best, and the casting process helps to achieve this. The growth of casting within the engine segment is likely to be triggered by the positive outlook of the automotive sector.

    By Vehicle Type

    The market is segmented into passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, heavy commercial vehicles, and two-wheelers. The passenger cars industry is likely to dominate the market during the forecast period. The introduction of new technology, along with a focus on reducing vehicle weight, will move the market forward. Government measures and financial support, on the other hand, will help to enhance car production in the future years. Changing customer dynamics, combined with fierce competition among car makers, have resulted in a greater focus on vehicle lightness and the use of innovative materials.

    Regional Analysis

    In terms of regions, Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest market for automotive casting over the forecast period, fuelled by a large number of automobile manufacturing plants that account for a considerable share of global auto production. Furthermore, as the region has a high number of foundries, obtaining raw materials is simple and inexpensive. Several governments in this region have developed initiatives to stimulate the automotive industry's growth. North America and Europe are also expected to offer sizeable growth opportunities in the coming years.
