Casting is a manufacturing process in which molten or liquid metal is poured into a mold made of sand, metal, or ceramic, which contains a hollow cavity of the desired shape, to form geometrically complex parts. All major metals can be made into castings and the most common ones are iron, aluminum, magnesium, zinc, steel, and copper-based alloys. 

Metal castings find application in cars, trucks, planes, trains, mining and construction equipment, oil wells, pipes, toys, space shuttles, wind turbines, nuclear plants, and more. Forging is the process of shaping the metals using compressive forces, which are then further processed to obtain a finished part. There are various types of forging methods such as closed die forging, cold forging, and open die forging.

The analysts forecast the Casting and Forging market in Europe will grow at a CAGR of 4.84 percent over the period 2013-2018.

The report, the Casting and Forging market in Europe 2013-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the Casting and Forging market in Europe landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

One of the emerging trends in this market is the growth in renewable energy casting. Metal castings will play a key role in the growth of all renewable energy sources such as biomass, geothermal heat pumps, hydropower, solar photovoltaic cells, and wind.

According to the report, the Casting and Forging Market in Europe is driven by several factors, one of them being increased demand for casting and forging from the automotive industry.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be.
