The effect of COVID-19 pandemic situation has led to the closure of several non-essential businesses reducing the demand for industrial goods in the world, which in turn, is affecting several industries worldwide. On the other hand, the COVID-19 pandemic is negatively impacting the production activities across automotive and construction units worldwide, the demand for forged parts has declined throughout the pandemic. As research and development of new applications for forged parts has been halted or stopped. The global supply chain has slowed down due to restrictions on national borders. In the forging market, demand has been decreasing in 1st and 2ndd quarter of the year (2020), therefore market growth rate has also slowed down during pandemic situation. Additionally, the forging production and supply are slowly growing and the market is expected to witness growth post COVID.

As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Partha Paul, “The rising geriatric population, and increasing research & development activities in the areas of automotive industry are anticipated to drive the forging market growth significantly. Moreover, the rising use of nuclear power plant as a sustainable power source is anticipated to create lucrative opportunity during forecast period.”

Key Takeaways from the Study:

  • The market in the Asia Pacific is projected to grow significantly owing to the growth in number of automotive and construction companies in the region.
  • The automotive industry itself holds a major chunk of the market. In 2019, the automotive industry holds 65.30% value share of the total forging market
  • Impression die forging which also referred to as closed-die forging, holds majority of the market (4.3%) in value terms in 2019 owing to its high usage in automotive industries as well as the aircraft, aerospace and defense, railroad, mining etc. Impression die forging is widely used, as it can produce complex designs. The number of dyes required for closed die or impression die forging depends on the complexity of the design.
  • the carbon and stainless-steel segment held a substantial share of the market in 2019, and is anticipated to expand at significant CAGR during the forecast period.
