The casting market is poised to grow long term at levels far exceeding global gdp.  Infrastructure build-up not only in the BRIC countries, but in the “Next-11”, as well as major infrastructure transformation in the developed world are key drivers.  The on-going urbanization and development of huge consumer markets, not to mention another billion inhabitants on earth over the next 20 years, are key drivers as well.  And, the tsunami changes in the world’s energy supply, distribution, and conservation are also drivers.      Castings are fundamental to all aspects of society and during the next 40 years will exceed global gdp by 2x to as much as 3x in growth.   Swartzlander has researched and presented numerous papers supporting the case for the castings boom, as well as discussions about the spectacular growth in the castings market in India and China.  Several of these are available through the American Foundry Society:
