Structural integrity: Renewed construction will drive growth, while imports pressure profit
Structural Metal Product Manufacturing in the US
Like many industries, manufacturers of structural metal products suffered from the crash in the construction markets. However, as construction activity rebounds in the next five years, so will the industry's fortunes. Profitability will be aided by a ramp-up in production brought on by rising demand, and increases in the price of inputs will be easier to pass on to consumers. However, these high input prices and an influx of low-cost imports will pressure margins.
Operators in this industry manufacturer one or more of the following products: fabricated structural metal products; prefabricated metal buildings, panels and sections; and metal plate work. Specific items produced include
steel and concrete reinforcing bars, fabricated bar joists and structural panels for bridges, boats and ships.
