Mr. Bryan Bian, Managing Director of Elcee(China), in addition to introducing procurement requirements, also analyzed that the current decline in casting orders and delays in shipments due to the COVID-19 is temporary. In the long term, the basic needs of Europe have not changed: China has a relatively complete range of casting processes and relatively strong competitiveness. There are more small and medium-sized enterprises in Europe, and the demand for castings is diverse but small in quantity. If suppliers can adapt to this feature, they will be more competitive.

Dirctor Wang from Foundry-Suppliers.Com pointed out in his opening presentation that COVID-19 caused a huge impact on the manufacturing industry. The automotive industry, machine tools, petrochemical pumps and valves, shipbuilding, energy and power industries have a shrinking demand for castings, while the demand for castings in construction machinery, mining machinery, agricultural machinery and other industries is increasing. China's foundry industry is showing the following positive trends in this situation: domestic casting production ha recovered rapidly, and the number of transnational projects is increasing; Brexit is good for China, both the UK and UE need the market and China-India relations slowed the shift of industries such as casting to India.
