China's economy is still developing rapidly. As the contradiction between the resources and the environment is increasingly intensifying, according to the requirements of Scientific Outlook on Development, circular economy and cleaner production have become the important national policies for the social economy sustainable development. Experts pointed out that the total output of the pressure die casting parts produced through various non-ferrous metal pressure casting technologies including low-pressure casting and squeeze casting, is about 1.5 million tons.
It is understood that the total output of vehicles in China has reached 7.28 million, an increase of 27.6% over the same period of last year. Among them, the output of automobiles is 3.87 million, an increase of 39.7% over the same period of last year. In 2012, the total output of the national pressure die casting parts was 1,024,000 tons, including 802,140 tons of aluminum die castings and 13,620 tons of magnesium die castings. In 2012, from January to October, the total national output of cars was 3,850,100, an increase of 23.4% over the same period of last year, and the total sales were 3,600,100, an increase of 22% over the same period of last year. The market for pressure die casting parts will still remain rapid growth. The recyclability and less-casting-without-cutting technology of die casting non-ferrous metal resources especially meet the requirements of circular economy and cleaner production, in line with the general policy of national economic development. The automobile lightweight accelerates the development of the market for aluminum and magnesium castings. The transfer of the center of gravity of the international non-ferrous metal die casting to our country has become an inevitable trend, and the development space of the die casting market is very large.
Increasing demand for aluminum die castings promotes the development of die castings industry
The automobile industry is one of the important customers of the domestic die casting industry. With the development of the domestic economy and the improvement of the people's living standard, the domestic automobile sales have been increasing continuously, which has greatly promoted the development of the domestic die casting industry, especially the aluminum alloy die casting industry. With the demand for domestic automobile lightweight higher and higher, the optimization and upgrading of the automobile industry are gradually implemented. The aluminum castings are gradually taking the place of the gray iron castings, which stimulates the increasing demand for the aluminum alloy castings. In addition, with the rapid development of the die casting industry in the world, the demand for aluminum alloy castings in all walks of life is increasing, and the development prospect of the die casting industry is very promising.
