Global Automotive Sheet Metal Components Market: Overview
This market research study analyzes the automotive sheet metal components market on global basis and provides estimates in terms of revenue (US$ Bn) from 2016 to 2025. It describes the market dynamics affecting the industry and analyzes their impact through the forecast period. Moreover, it highlights the significant opportunities for market growth in the next eight years.
Sheet metals are metals, which are formed or developed by industrial processes into flat and thin pieces. Sheet metals are refined form of metals which can be cut and bent into various shapes and sizes as per the required specifications. The thickness of sheet metals can vary significantly depending on the type of application. Extremely thin sheet metals are called leaf or foil and sheet metals thicker than 6 mm are called plates. Sheet metals can be available in coiled strips or flat pieces. The coiled strips are formed by processing coils of metals through a roll slitter. The most commonly used sheet metals range from 30 to 7 gauge. Gauge differs between ferrous metals, which is iron based and non-ferrous metals such as aluminum or copper. There are numerous metals that can be used to form sheet metals such as titanium, steel, tin, nickel, brass, aluminum, gold, platinum, silver and copper. However, steel and aluminum are the two major type of metals used as automotive sheet metals.
