The Present and Future of the Forging Industry

The demand for forgings essentially originates from the automotive sector which accounts for about 61% of the total forgings production. Within the automotive sector, it is the commercial vehicle segment that is predominant; this is followed by the passenger car segment. It is no exaggeration to say that the growth of the forging industry is automotive-led growth. It is therefore of paramount importance to the forging industry to closely follow the health of the automobile industry.

The year 2013-14 was one of the most challenging ones for the automobile industry; both vehicle and auto component sales saw a decline during the year. The industry recorded a decline of 2 per cent. The Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) for the industry has been 14 per cent for the last six years.

However, the auto component industry expects a growth of 4-6 per cent in the 2014-15 fiscal, if the vehicle sales continue to grow like they have in the last couple of months. Also, some positive initiatives taken by the government during the union budget for 2014-15 will help the industry record growth. ACMA has rightly acknowledged that there is a greater need for collaboration between the component manufacturers, OEMs, machine tool supplies and the raw material industry. This means there will be an increase in job opportunities for Forging Shop Shift In-Charge.
