Global Forging Market valued approximately USD 67.88 billion in 2017 is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than 6.32% over the forecast period 2018-2025. The major driving factor of global forging market are growing automotive industry, rising investment in the renewable energy, high strength metal components and cost effective method of metal forming. The major restraining factor of global forging market are increasing usage of casting or stamping process, rising demand for plastics as substitute and environmental rules & regulation and availability of light materials for automotive manufacturing. Forging refers to a process of shaping the material by applying compressive force manually by forging machines or with the use of power hammers. These forged parts include bolts, connecting rods, turbine shafts, crane hooks, hand tools, gears, and other components used in machine manufacturing. Forging process can be carried out on materials in either cold or hot state. Forgings can target a lower total cost compared to casting or fabrication. Hot forging prevents the work hardening that would result from cold forging which would increase the difficulty of performing secondary machining operations on the piece. When metal is shaped during the forging process, its internal grain texture deforms to follow the general shape of the part.
