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).
For more information on some key components of the fabricated metal
product manufacturing industry, please also see the following industry
profiles: Architectural & Structural Metals Manufacturing; Gun &
Ammunition Manufacturing; Handtool, Cutlery & Flatware Manufacturing;
Machine Shops; Metal Coating, Engraving & Heat Treating; and Metal Valve
& Pipe Fitting Manufacturing.
Demand is driven largely by the needs of other industrial companies and
is therefore linked to economic growth. The profitability of individual
companies depends on technical expertise and efficient manufacturing.
Large companies have economies of scale in purchasing raw materials.
