Today, non-ferrous foundries worldwide annually produce around 20 m tonnes; and grey cast iron, malleable cast iron, spheroidal graphite iron and cast steel foundries approx. 70 m tonnes of raw and finished components for the automobile, engineering, shipbuilding, hydraulics and construction industries.
