Key Insights Included in the Global Investment Casting Market Report:
• The growth estimates for automotive, aerospace & defense, and power generation are the most impacted. As of 2020, on the demand side, volumes are declining while prices of the casting products have not been allowed to fluctuate drastically due to high competition.
• Globally, the sales of automobiles, such as passenger cars and medium and large trucks, have fallen. China, the world's largest automaker, is struggling to revamp this drop. Automakers in China faced an average decline of around 9.5% in the sales volume in 2019.

The Use of Rapid Prototype Process
Rapid prototyping is a new technology that is gaining immense momentum in the global investment casting market over the past couple of years. The investment casting carried out through the rapid prototyping method is mostly used when only limited parts are needed by the customer and also when there exists a possibility of design modifications. The final output of this method includes fully functional components, matching in strength, features, and quality to that of conventionally cast products. The method is a low-cost alternative and benefits many customers with small requirements. The cost-saving method and time-saving method of rapid prototyping are expected to have higher traction going forward, especially in the post-COVID-19 scenario.
