The Auto, Agricultural and construction industry is going through continuous change and this change is the outcome of customer demands as well as new environmental norms.

Forging industry is aligning itself with various technological solutions for the evolving demands from the automotive sector. India is a major force in Forging manufacturing and shall play a crucial part in meeting the new demands of global customers.
Emission norms and light weighting of automotive are driving changes in product configuration and also creating opportunities for alternate technologies like sintering fabrication etc.
Indian organisations are losing their competitiveness as an industry as manufacturers in other parts of the world are embracing new and modern technologies. These industries are identifying niche products and focus their capacities on one or two product lines and focus on going up the value chain instead of being just a general forger.
