Iron & Steel casting demand is expected to grow at 5% mainly driven by demand in Valves, Pumps, Cement, Mining & Aluminium smelters
Global Foundry Industry Overview—China still biggest producer; castings consumption driven by passenger cars & CVs; light weighting trends increase need for Aluminium castings
Globally 40,000+ producers with production of ~84 million MT; Producers from China, India, US major control 70%; GCC is nascent with 0.2 MMT
Key Takeaways—Operational Efficiencies, Closer touch points with customers with regard to application engineering shall be a crucial success factor
Diversification into various grades, end-user segments to derive higher margins; JVs/alliances critical for offtake agreements and market expansion
Scope & Limitations
KSA and UAE drive the market in terms of Local Production and consumption
Market for Ferrous Casting is majorly catered through Iron casting which is a high volume & low value; Top 5 players control 20% market
KSA: Ferrous Casting was estimated at around 119,670 MT in 2016; India & China are the major importers
RoGCC: Ferrous Casting was estimated at around 188,585 MT in 2016; is a major exporter due to higher export focus by UAE producers
KSA’s Ferrous Castings demand comprises mainly Iron Castings (GI & DI) with 80%; Machined casting consists of approx. 70% of demand
RoGCC’s Ferrous Castings demand comprises mainly Grey Iron with 65%; Machined casting consists of 71% of demand
KSA: Foundry Market Overview—Approx. 31% of domestic sales consumed in the KSA; Infrastructure & Valves & Pumps are the key drivers of the market with 78% demand
RoGCC: Foundry Market Overview—Approx. 35% of Domestic Sales of Iron & Steel Castings consumed in RoGCC; UAE is the major producer
Valves, Pumps, Cement, Mining & Smelters are the key drivers both from Volumes and value perspective
Ferrous Castings Imports into GCC are mainly from India and China catering to the low end castings (Municipal Castings)
Capacity utilisation is expected to increase in future along with forward / backward integration
Import substitution key opportunity; India’s economies of scale & China’s export subsidies hinder local producers’ capacity utilisation
Vendor Selection Criteria – Price & Value Addition in the form of Machined Castings is a key factor for success
GCC industry is characterised by Direct end user sales from local foundries; India & China sell their casting products predominantly through the trader route
Voice of Customer—Imports delayed due to custom clearances; multiple local foundries preferred for local supply; India preferred import partner
Falling oil prices negatively impact govt. development budgets; countries to reduce subsidies, introduce 5% VAT by 2019
Key Growth Trends in GCC—The Mining & Automotive Industry has a strong demand uptake for Ferrous Casting parts
KSA’s diversification strategy to reduce oil revenue dependence; budgetary cuts impact on non-oil private sector high due to reliance on govt. tenders
Housing and infrastructure development, growth in industrial sector and Aluminium smelters to be regional growth drivers
Decision Makers spotlight—CEOs Perspective (1/2): Benchmarking with leading Indian/European foundries to drive production values; always-on technical support for customers to be key
Decision Makers spotlight—CEOs Perspective (2/2): Potential end customers in the proposed foundry should perceive a distinct advantage in sourcing to ensure sustainability of proposed business model
