Research and Markets: 2012 Report on the $295 Billion US Fabricated Metal Product Manufacturing Industry

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/7hv9g9/fabricated_metal_p) has announced the addition of the "Fabricated Metal Product Manufacturing" report to their offering.

The US fabricated metal product manufacturing industry includes about 55,000 companies with about $295 billion in combined annual revenue. Major companies in specialty segments include Ball Corporation, Flowserve, Mueller Industries, Snap-On, and The Timken Company. Because of the special manufacturing processes involved for individual parts, most companies make a limited range of products. The industry as a whole is fragmented: the largest 50 companies account for about 20 percent of revenue. But concentration can be high in industry segments such as boiler, cutlery, metal can, and spring manufacturing.

Globally, the fabricated metal product manufacturing industry generates about $1.5 trillion in annual revenue. Top producers include the US, China, Japan, Germany, Italy, and Canada. Major companies based outside the US include Schaeffler Technologies (Germany), Toyo Seikan Kaisha (Japan), and Jiangsu Guotai International (China).
