Why Use Investment Casting to Produce Automotive Castings

Update On Sep 29.2022

Investment Casting for the Automotive Industry

The global automotive casting market size is expected to witness considerable growth over the forecast period as governments around the world place increasing emphasis on introducing stringent regulations to improve energy efficiency. The automotive casting market is segmented into investment casting, die casting, sand casting, and others. The market share of the production of auto parts by investment casting is increasing.


Benefits of Using Investment Casting to Make Automotive Castings

Has a clear economic advantage

Investment casting can reduce scrap generation and increase productivity, thereby reducing production costs.


Increase production speed

Investment casting reduces labor time and shortens lead time because it greatly reduces the amount of machining required after the auto part is cast.


Tight tolerances

Investment casting has a tolerance of 0.003 inches, which is tighter than most casting processes such as die casting.


Impact of COVID-19 on Automotive Casting Market Forecast

The current COVID-19 pandemic negatively influenced the development of market in North America as the automotive industry suffered severe disruptions in their production processes. With the regional authorities placing restrictions on movement of people and goods along with social distancing norms and lockdowns, the demand for vehicles dipped to a great extent.

The automotive manufacturing plants in North America witnessed great disturbance in their supply chain processes due to shortage of manpower and transportation facilities. Many production facilities were temporarily shut down, leading to automakers incurring heavy losses. For example, renowned die cast manufacturer Pace Industries LLC was forced to shut down its five production plants in April 2020, which heavily affected its profit margins. However, today North America is witnessing an ease in its lockdown measures and restrictions, which will give the regional market a good chance to recover losses and get back on its feet.
