Distribution of Metal Foundries in China

Since 2000, China has become the largest country for producing metal castings. There are over 20 thousands of metal foundries in China. The following is the distribution of these metal foundries.

1. Liaoning, Hebei, Tianjin, Shangdong and Beijing Provinces

These five provinces have about 8000 metal foundries, and occupied about 26.7% of total foundries in China. There are about 433 thousands of workers in these areas. The annual production output can reach 11 million tons, and occupied over 33% of total metal casting production in China. Our factory, Dandong Foundry, is located in Liaoning province.

In these areas, the distribution of metal foundries are concentrated comparatively, the basic conditions and development trend are better. These metal foundries are mainly producing iron castings and steel castings by sand casting processes.

2. Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui Provinces

The metal foundries in these areas can produce 8.65 million tons of metal castings each year, occupied about 25.8% of total output in China. There are about 6300 metal foundries, and occupied about 20.8% of total metal foundries in China.

3. Guangdong, Fujian, Jiangxi, Guangxi, Hunan, Sichuan and Yunnan Provinces

In these provinces, there are about 4000 metal foundries, occupied 13.3% of total foundries in China, their annual output is about 3.7 million tons of metal castings, occupied about 11% of total output. There are many die casting foundries in Guangdong province, and zinc alloy die castings in China are mainly produced in this province.

4. Sichuan, Shanxi and Chongqing Provinces

In these provinces, the annual output is about 2.0 million tons of metal castings, occupied about 6% of total production. There are about 1300 metal foundries located in these areas. Chongqing city is an important base for die castings.

Although there are many metal foundries in China, but there are large differences for their technical level, production capability and equipment conditions. Moreover, although these metal foundries are concentrated, but China is too large, so they are also decentralized comparatively with the areas. In other words, maybe some metal foundries are located in the same province, but perhaps, they still have hundreds of kilometers distance.
