U.S. metal stamping market size, by process, 2018 - 2028 (USD Billion)

The U.S. is among the prominent players in the metal stamping industry. However, the emergence of COVID-19 and subsequent temporary lockdown measures in the country widely impacted the operations of the industry. The downstream demand from key sectors including automotive, aerospace, industrial machinery, and others was largely disrupted owing to the challenges in supply chain and dried-up demand from end-use customers. The situation is projected to normalize by the end of 2021 or 2022 based on the rate of vaccination and control measures to limit new variants of the coronavirus in the country.

In April 2018, a U.S.-based automobile component manufacturer named American Axle and Manufacturing and a China-based manufacturer Liuzhou Wuling Automobile Industry Co. Ltd., entered into a joint venture “Liuzhou AAM Automotive Driveline System Co. Ltd.”, in China to produce rear axles and drive heads. The joint venture aimed at meeting the growing demand for vans, minivans, and sport utility vehicles in the country. The increasing production of auto components is anticipated to propel the growth of the market.

According to the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT), the global electric vehicle production surpassed 2 million, out of which, China accounted for 51.6% in 2018. Government initiatives such as electric car subsidies to local manufacturers to support the growth of electric vehicles are a major factor responsible for the increase in production. This is likely to boost the usage of sheet metal during the production of auto components such as chassis, interior and exterior structural, and transmission components, which in turn, is expected to drive the metal stamping market growth during the forecast period.

The accelerating market growth can be hindered as automobile manufacturers are replacing metals with plastic and carbon fiber as they assist in weight reduction of vehicles. A 10% reduction in weight of the vehicle results in a 5% to 7% increase in fuel efficiency. The increasing production of lightweight vehicles owing to the stringent government regulations in various countries is anticipated to drive the demand for substitute products. For instance, in the U.S., developments in the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) regulations to enhance fuel-efficiency are encouraging the use of these substitute products in automobiles, which in turn is likely to hamper the market.

Process Insights

The blanking segment held the largest revenue share of more than 32% in 2020. Blanking is an integral part of manufacturing automobiles on account of its precise and superior stamping ability. The technique involves the use of a die to obtain the desired shape. The growing use of blanking in the automobile industry on account of its ability to cater to mass production lines is expected to augment segment growth over the coming years.

Embossing was the second largest segment in 2020 owing to its advantages such as the ability to produce different patterns and sizes, depending on the roll dies. This is done by passing a metal sheet or strip between rolls of the desired pattern. Embossing a sheet metal reduces friction, increases stiffness and rigidity, and enhances traction.

Bending process refers to pressuring a metal onto a plane surface to provide the desired shape. The bending process is cost-effective when used for low or medium quantities of metals. The bent parts are utilized in several applications such as wheels, door hinges, and the engine assembly in automobiles.

Coining is a cold working process that uses extreme force to plastically deform a metal workpiece such that it conforms to a die. A gear-driven press, a mechanical press, or a hydraulically actuated press are used in this process. It was earlier used in the minting of coins but with the growing complexity in the designing of automobiles, the coining process is now being used in metal stamping as well.
