Aluminum a silvery white metal produced from bauxite. Bauxite is processed into alumina which looks like a white powder and then processed into aluminum at smelters using electrolytic reduction. It is lighter than iron metal, flexible and corrosion resistant as it is covered with strong layer of oxide film. It is widely used in automotive, modern construction, aviation, energy and packaging industries which drive the growth of aluminum market.

Aluminum’s usage in commercial and passenger vehicles is accelerating owing to its fastest, safest and cost-effective way to increase performance. Automotive vehicles manufactured form aluminum boosts fuel economy and lower emissions while preserving or advancing safety and stability. As the material is lighter in nature it allows automotive manufacturers to improve dent resistance as they can make body panes thicker while still reducing weight. Moreover, in electric vehicles to achieve a high range for a given battery size and weight, weight reduction is needed, which in turn foster aluminum demand in EV vehicles. However, stringent regulations towards the emission of greenhouse gases form primary aluminum process is anticipated to restrain aluminum market to some extent.

The automotive industry begins to focus on fuel efficiency, reducing CO2 emissions and car design, aluminum play an important role in manufacturing of modern cars. Every kilogram of aluminum used in car lowers the general weight of the automobile by one kilogram. Owing to which, more car parts are manufactured from the material such as wheels, bumpers, suspension parts, body parts and frame which will fuel the aluminum market share. Global cars production was 70 million units in 2018 indicated significant potential for aluminum industry from transportation application segment.

Global aluminum industry is bifurcated based on products such as extruded, flat, forged, long, cast and others. Extruded products hold the largest market share with volume of surpassing 28 million tons in 2018. Aluminum extruded products are used in a diverse range of applications such as high conductivity of heat and electricity; heatsink, air conditioning, radiators, and electronics. Increase in governmental incentives to employ aluminum extrusions in Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPVs), which are used in the generation of renewable energy is driving the aluminum market.  

Extruded products are used in construction application as they avoid deformation caused by weather and building structure movement. They maintain intensity and flexibility under loads and spring backwards up from the shock of effect. The highly reflective characteristics of aluminum extruded products make them useful for safeguarding products or areas from light, infrared radiation or radio waves.

In transportation industry weight to strength ratio is critical which makes these products ideal for engine blocks, panels, roof rails, boats, trucks and as well as for bodies and parts of vehicles. Requirement for extruded products in manufacturing of lighter vehicles such as new 700 pounds lighter Ford F-150 pickup truck will offer lucrative business opportunities for aluminum industry expansion.

Advancement of new applications for aluminum through rolling process will drive the overall market size

Based on production process the market is bifurcated as rolling, extruding, drawn, casting and forging. Aluminum market outlook is attributed to its invasion in various industries such as aerospace, building, packaging, transport and electrical & electronics. Rolling aluminum is one of the principal ways of converting cast aluminum slab into usable form. Rolling process produce thinnest of foil with superior properties including lightness, strength and durability.

Rolling products may witness gains by 4.1% by the end of forecast timeframe. The rolling of   aluminum change over its metallic structure and the metal takes on new qualities & properties. In packaging application these foils, and sheets are generated for making beverage cans, flexible packaging and foil wraps which may accelerate aluminum market.

Based on application, the market is segmented as transport, construction, electrical & electronics, packaging, equipment & machinery, consumer durables, foil stock and others. Aluminum market trends is growing owing to its increase usage in electrical & electronics products as it has been designed for use as rigid electrical conduit. Rigid aluminum does not rust, spark and resist corrosion. These properties are vitally important for electrical applications within grain elevators, coal mines and refineries which in turn propel product growth. Moreover, Aluminum has cost and weight advantages over copper and is ideal raw material for electricity transmission and distribution uses.

Growing penetration for home appliances such as washing machine, dryer, refrigerator and laptops are lighter in weight owing to aluminum. The lightweight nature of aluminum in HD TV’s state that widescreen TV’s can be safely installed on walls with no internal or external bracing. The use of aluminum in consumer electronics initiated with the pioneering designs that came from engineering labs of Apple. The company offered aluminum body laptops in 2003 with the introduction of aluminum PowerBook G4 which in turn induced aluminum market value.
