The global fabricated metal products market was valued at $1.81 trillion in 2015 and will likely reach $2.35 trillion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 5.36%. The US accounted for almost 20% of the entire global fabrication metal product market. There is an increase in the demand for US-manufactured fabricated metal products worldwide. For example, Mexico, Canada, and China rely heavily on the US for the supply of fabricated metals.
