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.
