(B) die casting market development status

The die casting industry is one of the important support industry for the automotive industry, has been closely related to the development of the car. In recent years the rapid development of the auto industry led to the die casting market rapidly expanding, and broad development prospects. Now, with the development of automobile manufacturing technology, die casting is also facing new technical challenges, the die casting industry structure has undergone tremendous changes.

Die casting a very wide range of applications, involving a considerable number of product areas and industry categories. In all these applications, the terms of the number, variety, and the strict requirements of high quality and large the amount of metal material in the aggregate, it should be the most important automotive industry. Over the years, the automotive industry ranked the largest market of die-casting industry, the development of China's automobile industry in recent years continue to pull the die casting industry has entered a new period of development.

Die casting market, the amount of the share of the automotive industry is extremely impressive, According to official statistics: due to the different national industrial structure, the auto industry's share vary, but the proportion of the total top. Since the late 20th century until the early 21st century, the die-casting total for the part to the auto industry accounted for approximately 48-80%. Example: Australia accounted for 80%, Japan accounted for 79%, Spain 65%, China accounted for 64.5% (including cars and motorcycles), Germany (61%), India accounts for 60%, 49% in Canada, the United States accounted for 48% . According to reports in recent years, this proportion had risen to about 75%. The automobile industry using die casting such a huge share, which shows the important position in the die casting industry. The case of China, in recent years, this proportion is maintained between 65-75% (including cars, motorcycles and other vehicles), auto part point of view, this ratio also shows a substantial increase year by year trend.

As for die castings per vehicle in the amount of U.S. data, for example, the early 1980s, usually per car vehicle weight average in the range of 1315-1542KG, thereafter gradually decline. If the amount of aluminum alloy castings in each car, is increasing year by year, in 1980 the average per vehicle 34KG, 68KG 1990 to 2000, increased to 111.3KG, 2009, 157KG, aluminum die casting is accounted for more than 65 percent of all aluminum castings.

In addition, the car in addition to the aluminum die casting, also uses a zinc alloy, magnesium alloy and copper alloy die-casting, which, per vehicle in the amount of die-casting can be imagined. Die-casting industry is closely related with the automotive industry.

Review the development history of the world automobile industry, in various parts of the design and application process, attaches great importance to the adoption of the die-casting parts, especially in complex, large, important parts, usually as a major research topic. This illustrates not only the die-casting industry in this area is irreplaceable, but also highlights the development of die-casting industry largely based auto industry is relying on. In other words, the die casting industry is one of the important support industry for the automotive industry.

Today, the car tends to be more high-performance, low pollution, low-power. Vehicles to reduce energy consumption there are two ways: First, to improve the power system; to reduce vehicle weight, that is lightweight car. Lightweight of the most effective way is to switch to lightweight materials to manufacture auto parts. Instead of cast iron, aluminum alloy castings in the 1970s is the best option, once prevalent in aluminum on behalf of Iron "slogan. Was the automobile industry in a variety of aluminum alloy castings, die castings should be placed in the most important position. Thus, the use of aluminum die casting practices as automobile parts, swept the countries.

After rising gradually tightening emission regulations with Europe and the United States, energy saving, emission reduction requirements of the automotive industry. At this point, looking for one of the lighter material than the aluminum die casting to produce car parts, R & D direction. It is worth mentioning is that the past decade, some of the leading manufacturers in the automotive industry put forward the idea of ​​greater use of magnesium alloy parts, and has achieved some success.

Some high-tech development and innovation in the die casting industry, mostly around the high-tech requirements of the automotive industry started, including power, transmission, steering, body, architecture, decoration, instrumentation, and other various system requirements and a variety of parts, some structure in these parts, mechanical parts, safety, and trim. Among them, the most compelling, such as: aluminum alloy 390 the entire die casting, aluminum die-casting a cylinder block, get rid of the original aluminum alloy die-cast cylinder block, cylinder barrel cast into the cast iron; use of ultra low the iron content of the new aluminum SF36 manufacture of automotive body architecture to connect to change the traditional manufacturing method of the body; titanium alloy die casting automotive gas patriarch, opened up new areas of the titanium alloy die-casting technology; aluminum alloy die-casting the diesel engine casing has been available in recent years, six-cylinder engine block mold has Hui Wang mold development and successfully used in mass production.

In car weight reduction by magnesium alloy die-casting, has reached a certain extent, the formation of some of the current research focus and major R & D direction. For example, in dynamic systems and powertrains in the use of magnesium alloy die castings, magnesium alloy die castings in the automotive industry to further expand the application. It should be noted, consider the use of magnesium alloy die-casting magnesium alloy, instead of the other alloys, materials, production parts, the first response to the characteristics of this material to understand, can not act blindly, and production should give serious attention to safety environmental protection and other matters.
In another example, the development of a variety of the stomata process method. These methods include vacuum die casting, die casting, the constant acceleration of the slow injection of local compression technology; more squeeze casting and semi-solid forming (including rheological forming thixotropic molding) and other technical. All of these, no doubt to the die casting method has injected new vitality, thus making of high strength, high density become possible to obtain the heat treatment, welding and other characteristics of die-casting parts.

Coupled with recent years, the calculator simulation technology in the die casting increasingly widespread pressure even more widely even more powerful and continue to broaden the scope of application of the die casting. All most of them first to the needs of the automotive parts as a breakthrough, which fully reflects the die casting process to continue to meet the new needs of the automotive parts manufacturing, has an extremely broad market space.

It is worth noting that the accelerated development of fuel cell vehicles has become a hot topic in the automotive industry. According to the data analysis, although the manufacture of such models to some extent affect the casting technology application areas, but the component design of such models still have to die castings, and not too much impact in the automotive industry die casting market.

Global die-casting production and consumption is mainly concentrated in the United States, Japan, China, Italy, Germany, Mexico and other countries. With the continuous economic growth, global demand for automotive, electronics and communications products, die-casting industry has been rapid development. From the global metals, die castings, ferrous metal die castings accounted for up to 80% less than 20%, while the proportion of non-ferrous metals, aluminum die casting which accounted for up to 2/3. See from the non-ferrous metal die castings production and consumption, mainly in Europe and the United States and other countries and regions, the annual growth rate of around 9%.

China's die-casting production began in the late 1940s, after decades of development, has become a die casting production and consumption of one of the big country in the world. From the species composition of the die casting, aluminum die casting and magnesium alloy die-casting has developed rapidly in 1995 and 2003, average annual growth rate of 11.95% and 35.45% respectively.

2007, National Die Casting output was 1,188,920 tons, with an increase of 162% of: aluminum die-casting of 963,220 tons, zinc die castings, 201,200 tons, magnesium die casting 18,260 tons of copper die-casting 6240 tons, this is only a narrow high pressure die casting . Broad die-casting areas, including low pressure die casting and squeeze casting a total of about 1.64 million tons. Die-casting industry to promote sustained and rapid development of die-casting mold market demand, the average annual growth rate of about 20%, has formed the production scale of annual output value of nearly 100 billion yuan.

China's non-ferrous metal die castings has been able to grow faster than the international level, mainly due to the huge demand of the international non-ferrous metal die-casting industry to shift to China and domestic. In addition, China's nonferrous metal die casting products, aluminum die casting to dominate, and magnesium alloy die-casting has just started, but the broad development prospects, the proportion is expected to be dramatically increased.

Second, China's aluminum die casting market development status

Automotive parts manufacturers out of the vehicle and the formation of specialized parts group, is becoming a trend of globalization. The world's leading auto parts enterprises, almost all in Chinese joint venture or wholly owned enterprises, joint venture of the introduction of technology has more than 1000. Domestic group of high technology, and effective, large-scale automobiles and auto parts enterprises to gradually grow up. As the international automotive industry has begun to implement parts of global sourcing strategy and international multinational auto localization strategy, the domestic market will be a great contribution to the parts gap. In 2010, domestic output value of China's auto parts up to about 700 billion yuan.

At present, although the globalized economy, the overall decline, but the past 4-5 years, the actual procurement practice, the achievements of China sourcing is not as optimistic as predicted by the large number of companies, almost 80% more than the company did not meet their purchasing and procurement to reduce costs goals. With the appreciation of the renminbi and the decline of the export tax rebate, the greater the pressure by the Chinese procurement, international buyers has shifted to Vietnam, India, Thailand, Australia and other countries and regions. From the above it seems, China's auto parts industry in the current financial crisis will continue to accelerate growth.
