World Industrial Fasteners to 2016

 

Dallas, TX -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/22/2012 -- World sales to climb 5.2% annually through 2016

This study analyzes the world industrial fastener industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2001, 2006 and 2011, and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 by product (externally threaded, internally threaded, nonthreaded, application-specific, aerospace grade), market (OEM, MRO and construction), world region and major country. The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles industry participants.

Global sales of industrial fasteners market are expected to climb 5.2 percent per year to $82.9 billion in 2016, accelerating from the 2006-2011 rate of market expansion. The economies of many countries around the world will continue to recover from the global recession of 2009, spurring growth in durable goods output, which largely determines worldwide fastener sales. In 2011, motor vehicle original equipment manufacturing was the largest market for industrial fasteners, and this market will post the biggest gains through 2016 in value terms. Also, an acceleration in manufacturing output and fixed investment spending will lead to increased demand for fasteners used in machinery. However, intensifying competition from alternative joining technologies (such as adhesives) will restrain fastener sales increases in some market segments.

Asia/Pacific region to record strongest demand gains

The Asia/Pacific region will record the strongest demand gains from 2011 to 2016, averaging 7.4 percent per year. This expansion will be driven primarily by the strong Chinese market, which will continue to advance at a rapid pace despite moderating from the 2006-2011 period. Rising demand in the smaller Indian market will complement these gains, as sales in this country will climb at the most rapid pace worldwide in percentage terms through 2016. Ongoing growth in the durable goods manufacturing sectors in these nations, along with the continuing need for new and improved components of infrastructure, will foster these large gains in industrial fastener demand. Additionally, sales of fasteners in other developing areas of the world will advance at a healthy pace.

Gains in industrial fastener demand in the world’s highly developed economies -- namely, the US, Western Europe, and Japan -- were much slower than in industrializing countries between 2006 and 2011, and sales advances in most developed nations will continue to be subpar through 2016. Since the durable goods manufacturing sectors in these areas are mature, there will be fewer growth prospects for fastener suppliers. However, recoveries in motor vehicle production and construction expenditures following a period of decline will result in more rapid fastener sales gains going forward.

Developed countries to remain major aerospacegrade fastener suppliers

In the production of fasteners, foreign multinationals will continue to establish new facilities in China and other rapidly industrializing nations to take advantage of lower manufacturing costs for lowerend fastener products. However, the US, Western Europe, and Japan will continue to be major suppliers of aerospace-grade fasteners due to their long traditions of high-tech manufacturing.

Externally threaded types to post largest value gains

Standard externally threaded fasteners represented over one-half of the market total for industrial fasteners in 2011 and will post the largest value gains through 2016, supported by a pickup in production of a wide range of durable goods. However, the strongest growth in percentage terms will be registered by nonthreaded fasteners, bolstered by increased investment in infrastructure in many developing nations, and increased manufacturing of larger capital goods, that tend to use nonthreaded fasteners for secure, permanent joints.

Additional Information

This study analyzes global supply of and demand for industrial or mechanical fasteners. The following types of products are included:
- standard and aerospace-grade externally threaded fasteners (bolts, screws, etc.)
- internally threaded fasteners (like nuts and threaded inserts)
- nonthreaded fasteners (rivets, pins, washers, etc.)
- application-specific (or specialized) fasteners, including miscellaneous formed fasteners.

Excluded from the scope of the study are nails, brads, spikes, tacks, and related items, as well as adhesives and other joining/bonding products, although these are discussed for their potential impact on fastener demand. Nonindustrial-type items such as buttons, paperclips, and zippers are also excluded. For the purposes of this study, the term “aerospace-grade” refers to a category of high-performance fasteners manufactured to the specifications of aerospace/defense organizations. Applications for these fasteners, however, are not confined to the aircraft/aerospace industries, but can also include construction, high-performance automobiles, industrial machinery, and various other settings where the capabilities of such fasteners are warranted.

Historical data for 2001, 2006, and 2011 and forecasts for 2016 and 2021 are provided for industrial fastener demand by product type and by market (motor vehicles, machinery, electrical and electronic equipment, etc.), net exports, and shipments of fasteners on a country-by-country basis, valued in millions of current US dollars, including inflation. The term “demand” actually refers to “apparent consumption” and is defined as shipments (also referred to variously as “production,” “output” and “supply”) from a nation’s indigenous fastener manufacturing facilities plus imports minus exports. “Demand” is used interchangeably with the terms “market,” “sales,” and “consumption.”

Data on world industrial fastener supply and demand are derived from differing sources and developed from statistical relationships. As a result, variations are commonplace in this type of international reporting, and, consequently, data presented in this study are historically consistent but may differ from other sources. Variances may occur because of definitional differences, undistributed exports, inventory accumulation, and goods-in-transit. To reduce the impact of such discrepancies, total world fastener imports and exports have been assumed to balance in any given year.

In addition, major industrial fastener manufacturers are identified and profiled, and the key competitive variables are discussed. The entire report is framed within the global fastener industry’s economic, technological, and market environments, and therefore variables affecting fastener supply/demand patterns (such as manufacturing value added and gross fixed investment) are emphasized. Manufacturing value added is a measure of the manufacturing sector’s contribution to total economic output of a nation or region. World fastener market share data by company presented in the “Industry Structure” section are estimated based on consultation with multiple sources. Tabular details may not always add to totals due to rounding.
