The automotive market across the globe has been witnessing remarkable growth over the last decade. Not only in Europe, the USA, Japan, South Korea, and China, but the growth in demand for all kinds of automobiles has surged in Southeast Asia including Asia, Latin America, and several countries in Africa. If we talk about two-wheelers like commuter motorcycles and scooters, the demand is mind-blowing. Even, the demand for luxury bikes has increased manifold. The global two-wheeler market size was US$143.3 billion in 2022 and by 2032, the projection is almost US$206 Billion with a CAGR of 6.4% annually. Naturally, there is a rapid surge in the demand for two-wheeler auto parts in the automobile manufacturing industry. It may surprise you but the automotive market is getting dependent on the two wheeler parts manufacturers in India, especially the die-casting auto parts suppliers like Rockman Industries.
Evolution of die-casting parts manufacturing in India
The die-casting sector is quite old in India. However, its remarkable contribution to the manufacturing sector could be traced to the early phases of industrialization in India. Before independence, the sector was mostly unorganized but with the increasing demand for die-casting post-independence, the sector slowly got organized. Today, die-casting is the backbone of the automotive industry. Earlier, there was only one die-casting process called Gravity Die Casting (GDC) where the casting mold was filled with die-casting material like aluminum with the force of gravity. Today, the two wheeler parts manufacturers in India use two more processes, viz. Low Pressure Die Casting (LPDC) and High Pressure Die Casting (HPDC). Rockman Industries follows all these three processes of die-casting according to the clients’ requirements. All these three processes have their pros and cons.
Over the decades, the die-cast manufacturers have evolved technically and logistically incorporating best practices in every department. For example, Rockman Industries applies all three above-mentioned die-casting processes in their seven different manufacturing units located in different parts of the country with an annual capacity of 60,000 tons of aluminum die-casting and a daily production capacity of 180,000 components. Their die-casting supplies are exported all over the globe. Rockman Industries and the other global players of Indian origin are popular for their quality management and client-centric approach.
Contribution of die-casting in the two-wheeler manufacturing sector
Die-casting is the backbone of two-wheeler manufacturing, especially aluminum die-casting. Hundreds of different types of simple and complicated auto parts are manufactured in this process. The two wheeler parts manufacturers in India supply the two-wheeler sector with outer body parts, chassis parts, engine parts, suspension parts, fuel system parts, etc. Right from cylinder heads and engine housings to control levers and handlebar clamps, aluminum die-casting is used vastly in motorcycle and scooter manufacturing.
The present-day rapidly evolving EVs also need a consistent supply of different types of auto parts. Stator housings, battery casings, frame components, swingarms, wheel hubs, wheel covers, cooling fins and housings, suspension brackets, and several other components are die-cast auto parts. With the increasing demand of EVs around the globe, the demand for these aluminum components will also increase in parallel. The die-cast components enhance the overall performance of the EVs.
Indian manufacturers following best practices
Highly efficient two wheeler parts manufacturers in India following industry best practices and adhering to the best quality and international standards fixed by different domestic and international authorities in this domain. With the utmost focus on the latest technology, quality enhancement, customized products, and client deadlines, Indian die-casting manufacturers like Rockman Industries are well-positioned to contribute significantly to the global demand for varieties of die-casting components.
