Industrial Fasteners

US demand for industrial fasteners will reach $12.5 billion in 2013. Gains will be supported by a recovery in motor vehicle production and residential building construction, as well as by the offering of innovative, better-performing fasteners that can be sold at a premium. Aerospace-grade fasteners will slightly outpace standard types.

This study analyzes the US industrial fastener industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 type (e.g., externally threaded, internally threaded, nonthreaded, application-specific, aerospace-grade) and market (e.g., original equipment manufacturing, maintenance/repair/operations, construction).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 39 industry players, including Illinois Tool Works, Alcoa, and Precision Castparts.
