Aluminum foil has a prominent position in food service and processing industries owing to its unique advantages such as lightweight, non-toxicity, flexibility, and others. With the growing intake of frozen foods, the requirement for aluminum packaging solutions will rise.
 

Despite the favorable environment, the introduction of strict regulations associated with aluminum metal exports may create a hindrance to market development to a certain extent. For example, the Department of Commerce and International Trade Administration issued a rule effective January 2021, mandating the submission of import licenses to U.S. Customs for aluminum product imports. However, the growing popularity of secondary aluminum is likely to create lucrative growth opportunities for aluminum developers over the estimated timeline.

Aluminum market value from construction applications was worth over USD 34 million in 2022, due to the adoption of aluminum as a crucial industrial construction material in developed economies. Aluminum structures can deliver the same strength characteristics as their steel counterparts while ensuring a 35% to 65% reduction in weight. Aluminum composite panels are also used for drywalls, façades, and ceilings as an alternative to plaster and brickwork, fueling product usage across the dry construction sector.
 

Packaging applications is set to depict a 6% CAGR through 2032. The fundamental role of this metal in distributing, protecting, and displaying goods will increase its application scope across the packaging sector. Packaging material developers are also producing aluminum containers with high aesthetic appeal and striking package designs. These products are reflective, bright and have the option to be printed or color-lacquered, thus addressing consumer demands for valuable packaging materials.
