Major world regions include North America, Western Europe, Asia/Pacific, and all other regions.

To illustrate historical trends, world, product, market, and regional demand (including product and market segments) are provided for 2008, 2013, and 2018. Finally, global production is segmented by major world region and provided for 2008, 2013, 2018, and 2023.

This report analyzes the global supply of and demand for industrial mechanical fasteners. Excluded from the scope of this report are: nails, brads, spikes, tacks, and related items; adhesives and other joining/bonding products; and nonindustrial type products like buttons, paper clips, and zippers.

For the purposes of this report, the term "aerospace-grade" refers to a category of high-performance industrial fasteners manufactured to the specifications of aerospace/defense companies and agencies. End-use applications for these fasteners, however, are not confined to the aircraft/aerospace industries; they can also include construction, high-performance automobiles, industrial machinery, and various other settings where the capabilities of such fasteners are warranted.

Other various topics, including profiles of pertinent leading companies, are covered in this report. A full outline of report items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
