Status Quo of Aluminum Die Casting Industry in China

Aluminum casting refers to equipment and devices of pure aluminum or aluminum alloy obtained by casting. Generally, a sand mold or a metal mold is used to pour the aluminum or aluminum alloy heated into a liquid state into the mold cavity, and the obtained aluminum parts or aluminum alloy parts of various shapes and sizes are usually called aluminum die castings.

The market concentration of China’s die-casting manufacturing industry is low. Most enterprises have small production capacity. There are relatively few enterprises with scale advantages in the entire industry. Only a few enterprises have the ability to develop new products, use new materials, mold design and manufacture, The overall manufacturing capacity of multiple production links such as precision die-casting manufacturing and CNC finishing, therefore, it is difficult for the industry as a whole to obtain industrial chain synergies in production and R&D, which is not conducive to the improvement of the overall competitiveness of the industry.

In recent years, with the development of the global economy, the demand for precision die castings in many fields such as automobiles, 3C products, communication infrastructure equipment, household appliances, and medical equipment has grown steadily. The metal materials used in die casting are mainly aluminum alloys, magnesium alloys, zinc alloys and copper alloys. Since aluminum alloy die castings are widely used in the automotive industry, they account for a high proportion of die castings. At present, the market maturity of die casting parts in developed countries is relatively high. As more and more high-end manufacturing industries transfer their production capacity to China, China’s die-casting industry is also continuing to upgrade its structure in the process of growth, and the proportion of precision die-casting parts is gradually increasing. As one of the most important application fields of die-casting products, a large number of precision die-casting parts are used in automobile engines, gearboxes, transmission systems, steering systems, and electronic control systems. The demand for auto parts will greatly affect the overall die-casting industry. development prospects.

There are mainly two types of large-scale production enterprises of automobile die castings in China. One is the supporting enterprises of enterprises in the automobile field, which are subordinate to the group companies in the downstream industry; The production of precision die castings has established a relatively stable long-term cooperative relationship with downstream customers. With the development of China’s automobile industry and the trend of lightweight automobiles, the good industry application prospects of light alloy precision die castings such as aluminum alloys and magnesium alloys are attracting new competitors, including some large foreign-funded die casting enterprises. With the development of the industry, the market competition in the future will become increasingly fierce. Local automobile precision die casting manufacturers must continuously improve their technical level, introduce advanced equipment, and expand production scale in order to maintain their market position in the industry.
