This industry also includes forging, stamping, coating, engraving, heat treating and allied activities. The metal products market is segmented into forged and stamped goods; cutlery and hand tools; architectural and structural metals; boiler, tank, and shipping container; hardware; spring and wire products; machine shops, turned product, and screw, nut, and bolt; coated, engraved and heat treated metal products; metal valves; and other fabricated metal products.

Asia Pacific was the largest region in the global metal products market, accounting for 36% of the market in 2020. Western Europe was the second largest region accounting for 28% of the global metal products market. Africa was the smallest region in the global metal products market.

Many metal products companies are using robotics and automation to improve plant efficiency and productivity. Sensors are being used in various machines to access invaluable data for improving efficiencies and reduce potential breakdowns. For instance, according to a report by Boston Consulting Group (BCG), 1.2 million industrial robots are expected to be deployed by 2025, thus indicating rise in automation and robotics technology adoption to improve productivity and reduce production costs. According to KPMG report, 16% executives of global metals companies have already invested in robotics for metal manufacturing, 31% executives have set plans to possibly invest in robotics for new technology and opportunities, and 42% are willing to invest on robotics in the near future. Additionally, the report states, 63% of the executives of metal manufacturing companies are considering investing in automation. Examples of companies offering industrial robots to metals companies include FANUC, KUKA, ABB, and Motoman.

Many developed and developing economies are considering imposing restrictions on free trade. Post Brexit, trade restrictions between the UK and other European countries are likely to increase. The US government has repealed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) that created a trilateral trade block in North America. These changes can widen the trade competition between countries and reverse the trend towards global free trade. This will affect the demand for metal products, restricting the growth of the market.

The metal products market have benefitted from the rapid growth in automotive industry during the historic period. For instance, steel, aluminium and magnesium are some of metals commonly used in the automotive industry for manufacturing body panels, engines, transmissions and numerous other parts. The global motor vehicles market grew from $1,477.2 billion in 2014 to $2,085.1 billion in 2018 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9%. According to Deloitte, in 2016, 25% of the domestic steel demand in the US was coming from automotive industry and car sales in the US reached a record level of 17.6 million vehicles in 2016. Therefore, rise in demand for automobiles during this period, positively impacted the metal products manufacturing market.
