Published Date: May 3, 2017 Authors: Kiran Pulidindi, Soumalya Chakraborty
According to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc., the Aluminum Alloys Market size is slated to cross USD 150 billion by 2024. Rising air travel trends for domestic as well as international commuting and rising global trade activities will boost the aluminum alloys demand in the aviation industry.
According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), number of flyers witnessed a steep increase from less than 3 billion in 2011 to more than 3.7 billion in 2016 and this number will double over the next two decades. U.S., China, and UK accounted for majority of the total with more than 1 billion flyers in 2016, but India is likely to surpass UK and other countries including Germany, Japan, and Indonesia in the coming years. Annual delivery of commercial aircrafts is gradually increasing to successfully serve the high number of flyers, hence propelling the overall aluminum alloys market.
Rapidly rising population and increasing urbanization in the BRICS nations will be an important driver for the global product market during the forecast years. These nations are gradually shifting their focus towards investments for industrial developments in order to create job opportunities to the increasing number of young as well as middle age population. Government initiatives to develop the infrastructure and housings in these countries, especially in China and India, will further catalyze the aluminum alloys market growth.
The construction industry was worth beyond USD 3 trillion in 2016 in the BRICS countries and this number will reach close to USD 8 trillion by 2024. Growing usage of advanced materials in building construction as well as infrastructures such as flyovers and bridges will drive the global aluminum alloys market share in the near future.
Aluminum alloys market is primarily dependent on the availability of aluminum along with other alloying materials including zinc, copper, magnesium, manganese, tin, etc. Fluctuation in the prices of aluminum owing to its application in various end-user industries may inhibit global market growth in coming seven years. Price volatility of other alloying elements such as copper, zinc, and magnesium due to competitive market may also pose hindrances to the industry growth.
