LONDON--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global forging market report. This market research report also lists 36 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.
“However, the global market is witnessing a gradual shift wherein the vendors are trying to reduce their dependence on the automotive sector and are emphasizing on generating demand from non-automotive applications”
Competitive vendor landscape
According to the research analysis, the global forging market is fragmented, with the clear dominance of large international players. The market is capital-intensive, and hence, it poses a stiff challenge to local players. These small players find it quite difficult to compete with international vendors in terms of quality, features, functionalities, and services. With the introduction of products with new features and technologies, the competition will become more aggressive. Vendors operating in the market experience maximum demand from the automotive sector, which is expected to drive the demand during the forecast period. The automotive sector, which comprises heavy trucks, light commercial vehicles, passenger cars, and buses and coaches accounted for about 64% of the global forging market in 2015. The automotive market dynamics will have a direct impact on the demand for forged components.
“However, the global market is witnessing a gradual shift wherein the vendors are trying to reduce their dependence on the automotive sector and are emphasizing on generating demand from non-automotive applications,” says Gaurav Mohindru, a lead analyst at Technavio for metals and minerals research.
The report also states that the industry has been increasingly focusing on enhancing forging efficiency, which has led to the demand for automated technology and equipment. The automation of the forging process and related machinery is now turning into a key technology trend among the industry players.
