South Africa Automotive Parts Magnesium Die casting Market

South Africa’s market for automotive parts magnesium die-casting is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.78% during the forecast period. The market is primarily driven by the presence of the vast component manufacturers in the country, constituting a primary reason for the major OEMs to assemble vehicle and source automotive components from the country. Demand for lightweight and fuel-efficient components, as well as sturdy components primarily in the manufacturing of passenger automotive vehicles, has helped to steer the demand of the magnesium automotive parts die-casting market in the country. Major automotive component manufacturers like Arvin Exhaust, Bloxwich, Corning, and Senior Flexonics have established production bases in the country.

The automotive industry in South Africa is also expected to grow significantly driven by the increase in local production of vehicles that is estimated to reach 1.3 million vehicles in the forecast period. Thereby, the growth of the automotive industry in the country expected in the forecasted period, along with the growing acceptance of magnesium die-casting for the manufacturing of automotive components, would help to drive the market to a large extent, by the end of 2020. Bel-Mac, a subsidiary of Bel-Essex, is one of the major die-cast manufacturers in the country specializing in the production and machining of high-pressure magnesium die cast components for the automotive industry.

Magnesium, being the lightest of all structural materials, becomes a preferred choice of material used in the die casting process. The primary advantage driving magnesium die casting of automotive parts is that the vehicles with magnesium die-casted components would be 1/3 lighter in weight than the aluminum die-casted ones. Apart from being light, magnesium has the advantage of greater strength, stability and rigidity along with inherent EMI/RFI shielding, durability, heat-dissipation, and full recyclability features, making it the most preferred die-casting alloy.

The market is segmented based on the production process type and application type. Among the production process type, pressure die casting would continue to dominate the market in the forecast period. High efficiency and the low operating cost are expected to drive the growth of the pressure die-casting market. However, vapor die-casting would grow at a higher rate than any other production process type in the magnesium automotive die-casting market.

Some of the key players in the market are:

  • Georg Fischer Limited
  • Gibbs Die Casting Group
  • Magic Precision Inc.
  • Meridian Lightweight Technologies
  • Morimura Bros. Inc.
  • Pace Industries
  • Ryobi Die Casting Inc.
