Research and Markets: Global Investment Casting Market 2014-2018

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/zt563n/global_investment) has announced the addition of the "Global Investment Casting Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.

Over the last four decades, a staggering number of foundries in developed countries have closed down because of high labor, production, and raw material costs, and more recently, the low demand triggered by the global recession. Owing to these reasons, manufacturers prefer to set up production facilities in emerging countries.

The shift is also driven by rigid environmental stipulations and initiatives with regard to waste, energy, and environmental taxation by governments in Western countries. In emerging countries, raw material is abundantly available though sometimes inferior in quality, and, in addition, the availability of cheap labor in these countries hints at the untapped potential of these markets.

According to the report, one of the main drivers in this market is industrialization and development in the APAC region. Since the global economic recession many organizations have been expanding their manufacturing operations across the globe, especially in the APAC region, to tap the potential of the rapidly growing market in countries such as China and India.

Further, the report states that one of the key challenges is the increase in energy requirements for the production of castings. The prices of metal castings are also increasing because of the increasing raw material costs.
