Industrial fasteners are hardware devices used for joining two or more objects or joints and are primarily used across a wide range of industries, such as Automotive, Aerospace, Construction, Consumer Appliance and Furniture, and so on. Over the years, the global fastener market has been experiencing unprecedented growth and is expected to reach around $110.91 billion by 2029. The Indian fastener industry is currently growing at a CAGR of six percent and is expected to grow further, owing to its extensive use in the automotive sector.
While there was a downfall in the industry growth due to the shocking halt in infrastructural activities during the pandemic, the industry has been on a rapid rise due to the massive growth in the Indian construction market. Keeping future opportunities and overall sector growth in mind, many startups as well as global brands have ventured into the Indian industrial fastener sector.
