Continuous growth in market size, broad prospects for transformation and upgrading

Benefiting from the widespread application of sand casting technology, the market size of core making equipment continues to grow. China’s casting production has consistently ranked first in the world for many years. As the most widely used casting process, sand casting has brought a large demand for sand casting specialized equipment such as core making equipment. Sand casting is currently the main production process in the foundry industry, and it is expected to continue to be widely used in the next 10 to 20 years.

The market size of China’s chip making equipment is relatively large, but it is mostly mid to low-end products produced by small and medium-sized enterprises. Foreign manufacturers still occupy a certain market share in the high-end product market, and the competitiveness of domestic high-end chip making equipment is relatively weak. With the country’s demand for “independence, controllability, and reliability” in the equipment manufacturing industry, the market share of domestically produced high-end core making equipment with excellent performance, reliable quality, and high cost-effectiveness continues to grow. In the future, a few domestic enterprises with core technology and independent innovation capabilities will gradually increase their market share through product technology, cost, and localization advantages, and the trend of “import substitution” for high-end products will become increasingly apparent.

With the implementation of the policy of phasing out outdated casting capacity, China’s traditional casting industry, especially the traditional sand casting industry, is facing significant pressure for transformation and upgrading. The transformation and upgrading of the sand casting industry is driving the development of the core making equipment industry. Core making equipment, especially high-end core making equipment such as core making center, as a major fixed assets investment of downstream customers, has a high amount of early investment. If problems occur in the use process, it will directly affect the quality of products produced and the continuity of production activities. Therefore, downstream customers of high-end core making equipment are currently mainly concentrated in large casting enterprises with strong financial strength, large scale, and high risk resistance.

With the improvement of performance parameters of downstream equipment products, aluminum alloy castings are showing a trend of “high quality” in precision, complexity, and thin-walling, and the production capacity of high-end castings is gradually being released. Automobile is an important application field of aluminum alloy castings, and lightweight automobile has become a future development trend in the automotive industry. Automobile lightweighting is achieved through casting material modification and process reform, improving casting accuracy, reducing casting wall thickness, and reducing casting quality.

Driven by the policy of phasing out outdated production capacity and upgrading traditional tidal sand technology, downstream foundry manufacturers will continue to release their demand for new processes and high-end core making equipment procurement. With the continuous deepening of “import substitution”, downstream foundry manufacturers have increased their trust in domestic high-end core making equipment. Sand casting manufacturers have been engaged in the research and production of casting products for nearly 20 years, possessing independent intellectual property rights and continuous innovation capabilities in core technology. High end core making equipment products have global competitiveness, and have provided core making equipment and services to multiple large domestic casting manufacturers, accumulating high customer reputation and establishing significant competitive advantages. Driven by the aforementioned opportunities and advantages, sand casting manufacturers have broad prospects for the future development of their equipment business.

Sand casting manufacturers have long focused on the research and industrialization of precision core casting technology, building intelligent, green, and high-quality casting production workshops, achieving automated and intelligent production of castings. Sand casting manufacturers adhere to a high-end positioning in their casting business, and their casting products are characterized by complex design, high process difficulty, and high precision. They have established long-term and stable cooperative relationships with multiple well-known domestic and foreign customers. With the lightweighting of automobiles and the elimination of outdated domestic casting capacity, the aluminum alloy casting market, especially the high-quality aluminum alloy casting market, will continue to grow. The development prospects of the aluminum alloy casting business market for sand casting manufacturers are broad.
