European Automotive Casting Market size is expected to reach USD 28 billion by 2027, according to a latest forecast report by Graphical Research.
The growing concern towards the reduction of vehicle emissions has resulted in the shift of manufacturing trends to lightweight vehicles which is anticipated to generate huge revenue gains throughout the forecast period. Europe is home to some of the largest automobile manufacturers across the globe. The growing production in the region along with the presence of stringent regulations has resulted in higher adoption of aluminum in passenger vehicles. The use of aluminum casting provides with economical and efficient process offering for a wide range of shapes and components.
Zinc castings are used in exterior parts including sunroof windshield wiper, and chassis. It provides with excellent tensile strength that twice as strong as aluminum parts. Moreover, zinc casting also allows efficient thermal and electrical conductivity and high corrosion resistance.
In terms of processes, sand casting will hold over 25% market share throughout the study timeframe. This casting process typically has a low production rate however can be utilized to produce complex shapes and sizes. These are widely used in automobile components such as engine manifolds, engine blocks, transmission cases and cylinder heads among others.
