Geographically, the Asia Pacific region dominates the global die casting market and various players are expanding their operations in China and India to leverage low costs and growing automobile demand.

Market drivers: Rapid growth of the automotive industry especially in developing nations is a key driver for die casting market. Vehicles increasingly incorporate die casted components to reduce weight and costs. Growing demand for aluminum die casting from machinery, aerospace and defense industries is another major growth driver.

Market restraints: Volatility in raw material prices especially zinc and aluminum alloys impacts die casting costs. Stringent environmental regulations regarding disposal of hazardous die casting waste also acts as a restraint.

Segment Analysis
The die casting market is dominated by zinc die casting sub segment which accounts for over 50% of the overall market share. Zinc die casting is preferred material for die casting due to its relatively lower melting point which enables faster production cycles and lower energy consumption compared to other metals. In addition, zinc provides good structural strength along with excellent corrosion resistance properties which makes it suitable for various industrial and automotive applications.

Aluminum is another major sub segment in die casting market. Aircraft components, electronics parts and automotive components are some of the key applications areas of aluminum die casting. Properties like lightweight, high tensile strength and machinability makes aluminum an ideal material for die casting parts in automotive and aerospace industries.

Global Analysis
North America accounts for the largest share in the die casting market, driven by well established automotive industry in US and Canada. Presence of major OEMs and their large production facilities fuels the demand for die casting components. Asia Pacific region is poised to grow at the fastest pace during the forecast period. Expanding middle class population and rising automobile sales in China and India contributes to the growth of die casting market in Asia Pacific region. Furthermore, shifting of manufacturing facilities from developed markets to Asia Pacific by global automakers also supports the regional market growth. Europe holds a significant share backed by flourishing automotive, aerospace and industrial manufacturing sectors within the region.
