Once again, the CAEF – The European Foundry Association – Commission for economics & statistics has compiled a statistical annual entitled „The European Foundry Industry 2021“ from national reports and statistical material gathered from its member countries. The main tables were supplemented by information from European foundry nations being non-members of CAEF as far as data has been

The publication thus presents an authentic statistical picture of the European foundry industry. All the same, data in some categories, particularly those regarding output values, have remained incomplete. Despite those inadequacies the Annual Report published by the Commission for economics & statistics remains the most comprehensive Europe-wide survey of our industry.

The Commission wishes to express its gratitude to all those CAEF member association representatives who helped in preparing these reports and figures.
