Fitting the mould: Rebounding steel prices will spur industry revenue growth

Over the five years to 2018, revenue for the Metal Stamping and Forging industry in Canada has increased despite weak performance in the years leading up to the reporting period. Moving forward, the price of steel is expected to rebound slowly as global demand improves while global supply tightens; the same applies to the price of nonferrous metals. These trends are likely to bolster selling prices, revenue and profit. However, import penetration is also expected to continue rising, placing pressure on domestic manufacturers. Overall, IBISWorld expects revenue to grow slowly over the five years to more.
