    Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    The Non-Ferrous Metal Casting industry is a small component of Australia's primary metal and metal product manufacturing sector. The industry has declined over the past five years due to challenging market conditions. Rising import penetration has contributed to declining activity in a range of downstream manufacturing markets, which has reduced demand for industry products over the past five years. In addition, reduced mining activity has caused demand to weaken further. Rising agricultural and construction activity have limited demand declines, but have not offset revenue declines over the past five years. Industry revenue is expected to fall by an annualised 12.5% over the five years through 2016-17, to reach $68.6 million. This includes a projected fall of 6.4% in 2016-17...

    Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

    The Non-Ferrous Metal Casting industry exhibits low market share concentration, with the four largest operators accounting for substantially less than 40% of industry revenue. The industry contains numerous small, specialist producers that cater to niche markets, largely producing to custom-fitted specifications. In addition, just under 90% of the industry is either an owner-operator or a company that employs fewer than 20 staff. Consequently, the industry is highly fragmented, with no player generating over 5% of industry revenue. Over the past five years, industry concentration has largely remained stable.
