logoMarket Overview

Magnesium is a part of numerous alloys and is widely used as a base material for various structures. The most commonly used magnesium alloy in die-casting processes is the AZ91D due to its excellent resistance to corrosion, high strength, and good cast-ability. For highly durable and lightweight parts, the demand for AZ91D has increased over the years. Magnesium is used in the die-casting processes because of the various benefits associated with its application.

For instance, it is 75% lighter than steel and exhibits the same level of strength. For manufacturing almost-net-shaped or net-shaped, thin-walled, and complex castings, magnesium provides greater stability in terms of dimension. It is also considered stiffer and stronger than most of the modern-age advanced and engineered plastics. Other factors that influence the higher use of magnesium include high wear resistance and better energy absorption which means it can limit the effect of an impact. It also offers resistance to high temperatures.

logo Growth Drivers

  • Numerous benefits offered by magnesium and die casting as a combination to propel market demand

The global automotive parts magnesium die casting market is projected to grow due to the excellent advantages associated with manufacturing automotive parts by using magnesium as a material and die casting as a process in combination. Magnesium alloys have proven to be far more beneficial in terms of physical, chemical, and mechanical properties as compared to other alloys like steel or aluminum. They are in fact better than the various engineered and modified plastics which makes magnesium one of the most preferred choices of alloy amongst automotive manufacturers.

Most of the players use die casting methods to produce vehicle parts as compared to sand casting methods. Die casting has proven to provide extremely accurate dimensions whereas the other alternative is less accurate. The production volume is also generally higher in die casting methods. It typically begins at 1000 scales and goes higher whereas in the sand casting method the production scale starts from 1 to 1000. The modern day vehicles have complex parts and it is possible to achieve accuracy in manufacturing the complexities in terms of shape using the die casting method.

logo Restraints

  • Casting defects to restrict market expansion

The most commonly found defects in terms of magnesium die casting include cold shuts and misruns. They both represent the event where the material may freeze before it fills the mold cavity. They have been termed as serious defects because the area around the defect is known to be weaker than the other areas which could lead to serious issues if the defect is not closely monitored or it is managed to skip the attention of the product provider. However, magnesium is one of the easiest alloys to operate the casting process with but there is always a chance of error during the long production process.

logo Opportunities

  • Growing research & development in new magnesium die casting method to provide growth opportunities

Since both magnesium and the die casting process is a popular choices amongst the market players, there has been a growth in the investment toward research & innovation to enhance the output of the die casting process and to achieve 100% accuracy with the use of magnesium alloy. For instance, most corporations are currently using the high-pressure die casting (HPDC) method to manufacture automotive parts; however, the global market is also witnessing a recent shift of interest toward high vacuum die casting processes involving magnesium alloys. These events could provide higher growth opportunities in the coming years.

logo Challenges

  • Management of high porosity level to challenge market growth

Even though the magnesium die casting method provides high outputs, the major concern with the use of HPDC includes the management of high porosity level that is a result of injecting molten material at high velocities. This causes the gasses to get trapped. In the case of thin wall sections, the porosity issue is not a serious concern, however, for parts with thicker walls, management of porosity level is a challenging factor for the global market players.

logoSegmentation Analysis

The global automotive parts magnesium die casting market is segmented based on application, production process, and region

Based on application, the global market segments are engine parts, body parts, transmission parts, and others. In 2021, the body parts segment generated the highest revenue due to the growing revenue in the automobile sector. Die casting allows vehicle manufacturers to explore the areas of complex part production since the process becomes easy with die casting. The segmental growth was also driven by the higher use of magnesium die casting to produce body parts of motorcycles. The sales of 2-wheelers registered surging numbers in 2021. For instance, in India, the sales of two-wheelers rose by 9% in terms of year-on-year revenue.

Based on production process, the global market is segmented into vacuum die casting, pressure die casting, squeezing die casting, and gravity die casting. The highest CAGR was registered in the pressure die casting process owing to the growing demand for electric vehicles. This has resulted in product and service providers phasing out the use of heavy components with lighter-weight structures which can be achieved with magnesium alloys. As compared to aluminum, it is 35% lighter and has almost similar or better mechanical properties.

logoRecent Developments:

  • In May 2022, Bocar and GF Casting Solutions entered a collaboration to conduct research & development activities intended to explore die casting methods. The collaboration is expected to help the companies bring higher value to their customers
  • In June 2020, STIHL Magnesium Die-Casting announced the expansion of its Germany plant with the launch of a new production logistics unit
