Global Sleeves Market Worth US$ 1.45 Billion by 2033, Fueled by High-Quality Metal Casting Demand from Automotive and Construction Companies: Persistence Market Research

China leads the global sleeves market in 2023 with a 4.8% CAGR, driven by automotive, aerospace, and construction industries, bolstered by infrastructure projects and advanced casting tech

New York, Oct. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global sleeves market stood at US$ 902.5 million in 2022 and is projected to reach US$ 1.45 billion by the end of 2033, as per a new study by Persistence Market Research. Demand for exothermic sleeves is high, and this segment is expected to expand at a volume CAGR of 4.3% through 2033.

Foundry sleeves are typically made from clay, graphite, or other high-temperature-resistant substances. Exothermic sleeves are used in the casting process to enhance the quality of molten metal by improving uniformity and reducing impurities. Insulating sleeves, on the other hand, help in modulating the metal’s rate of solidification, eliminating defects like porosity and shrinkage voids.

Increasing demand for different types of castings from several end-use industries, such as automotive and construction, is one of the prominent factors driving the growth of the sleeves market.

As the automotive industry continues to grow and innovate, demand for precision cast components increases, leading to a corresponding rise in the need for these sleeves to ensure casting quality and consistency.

Urbanization and the robust growth of the global construction industry are key factors pushing the demand for foundry sleeves. The construction industry relies on various metal components and structures, such as steel beams, columns, brackets, and connectors.

Sleeves are used in the casting of these metal components. As the construction industry grows, there is a higher demand for these metal castings, which in turn can drive the sales of foundry sleeves across the globe.

Rising need for high-performance components in the aerospace and defense industries is anticipated to boost the demand for sleeves during the forecast period. These sleeves are essential for producing complex and precise castings, such as engine turbine blades and structural aircraft components. They ensure the integrity of critical alloys and maintain the structural integrity of components used in defense systems and aircraft.
