Industry Insights

The global metal stamping market size was estimated at USD 204.60 billion in 2016. The increasing utilization of sheet metal in automotive industry and consumer electronics is expected to drive the demand for stamping as it is used in manufacturing automotive chassis, transmission components, and interior & exterior structural components of electronics.

Excess supply of metal such as steel has led to the decrease in the prices in the recent past. In addition, European economic crisis had a massive impact on prices. As a result, lower raw material prices is expected to complement the use of lightweight corrosion resistive metal to enhance the stability of the consumer electronics and electrical & electronic products.

U.S. metal stamping market

Technological innovations in the form of improved stamping processes have seen commercial usage in the recent past. In addition, regulatory policies aimed at improving working conditions & safety standards, waste disposal, and materials usage are imperative for shaping growth & sustainability strategies of the stamping companies over the forecast period.

The industry is influenced by consumption patterns in industries such as consumer appliances, telecommunications, and automotive. These industries have traditionally been dependent on metals such as steel, aluminum, cast iron, and titanium for the manufacturing of equipment, machinery, and tools.

Industrial machinery and assembly equipment are made of high strength & durable metal sheets. This industrial machinery segment is highly dependent on precision stamping as components of the machinery have to be shaped into desired geometrics which is expected to drive the industry over the forecast period.

The growing use of polymers in the automotive industry is expected to hamper the industry over the forecast period. Shifting trend of replacing metals with composites and polymers in order to decrease the weight of the vehicle and, in turn, increasing the fuel efficiency is expected to restrain the market growth.

Process Insights

Blanking is an integral part of the automobile manufacturing chain and is expected to witness increased demand over the forecast period owing to its precise and superior stamping ability. Growing use of blanking in the automobile industry, owing to its ability to cater to mass production lines, is expected to aid metal stamping growth over the forecast period.

Embossing is widely used across multiple industries for engraving and metal printing applications; thus, embossing market is estimated to witness rapid growth in the near future. Furthermore, with the global economic revival fueling higher demand for metals, embossing and other processes are projected to witness growth at a brisk rate over the forecast period.

Bending market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.4% over the forecast period. The presence of several bending techniques include air bending, bottom bending, three-point bending, and folding has led its use in manufacturing components of vehicles and industrial machinery as it ensures stability and durability, which is expected to drive growth. 

Application Insights

Metal stamping in automotive application accounted for 37.4% of the overall revenue share in 2016. Automotive is the leading application market for metal stamping industry as key automotive components such as chassis, engine, transmission parts, under the hood, and exterior structural panels are manufactured using sheet metal.

Industrial machinery is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% over the forecast period. The growing demand for machinery and automation to enhance the operating precision is expected to have a positive impact on the machinery market, which in turn, expected to drive the demand for stamped parts used in the manufacturing of machines.

Global metal stamping market

Consumer electronics is expected to emerge as the fastest growing application segment for stamped parts on account of the growing utilization of lightweight components to improve the durability of electronics. Metal parts are used for manufacturing antennas and the outer body of telecom products which in turn is expected to drive industry.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific was the largest stamping market, accounting for 34.8% of the global revenue in 2016. The region is expected to dominate the industry over the forecast period owing to increasing infrastructural activities, particularly in China and India. Growing automotive sector in the region is expected to drive the industry over the forecast period.

Rising capital investments by oil & gas companies in exploration activities, deep-water projects, and refining base expansion, particularly in India, Indonesia, and Malaysia, are factors expected to propel market growth. Europe accounted for the third-largest market share in 2016 owing to large scale use of stamping processes in construction activities over the past few years.

Growing demand for stamping from automotive, aerospace, aircraft, and defense industries and presence of major automobile manufacturers in countries such as the U.S., U.K. Germany, Sweden, and Italy is expected to boost industry revenue in North America and Europe.

Competitive Insights

The companies in the industry are highly competitive with the presence of local as well as global market players and compete on the basis of services and customized products. The local players provide personalized customization services to its clients as well as standardized products to the major industrial machinery producers and automotive OEMs.

The U.S. is expected to remain the dominant market for stamping. The countries such India and China are expected to have highest growth rate on account of growing industrialization coupled with infrastructure development in the region. Furthermore, increasing R&D investments by government in the countries is expected to aid market growth.
