Automotive Forging Market: Introduction
Forging is a manufacturing process involving the shaping of metal using compressive force. Automotive forging involves the manufacturing of automotive components, including engine parts (such as connecting rods, injection, crankshaft, camshaft, piston, etc.), chassis, bearings, gears, axles and others. The automotive forging process can be carried out on materials either in hot or cold state, depending upon the mechanical properties required. Automotive forged products offer superior toughness, strength and high strength-to-weight ratios. Some of the most common materials utilized in the automotive forging market are aluminum and steel. Steel is commonly used in the automotive forging industry owing to its strength, availability and high resilience. Aluminum is gaining traction in the automotive forging industry owing to increasing demand for light weight vehicles. Aluminum provides high strength, desirable anti-corrosion, surface finish, lower cost and design flexibility to automotive forging.
