Aluminium Market – Market Overview

Aluminium is a lightweight metal, which is produced from bauxite. Bauxite is rich in aluminium oxides, which is melted and electrolysed to produce different types of aluminium alloys. These alloys are further processed to make value added products such as cans, foils, utensils, frames, and structure among others. The market is primarily driven by the increasing adoption of aluminium in the automotive sector with increasing scrutiny on emissions from vehicle and prevalence of lightweight trends in the automotive sector.

The distinguished advantages of aluminium in terms of cost and weight over copper has replaced the application of copper in the electrical sector. Aluminium is used various for applications in the electrical sector namely, transmission lines, building wiring, motors, and transformers among others. Furthermore, regional standards stipulating use of aluminium wiring for building and construction such as the National Electric Code in U.S, National Energy Administration (China), is expected to further boost the consumption of aluminium in the electrical sector, in turn driving the demand for aluminium.

Addressing the global emission standards has always been a challenge for automotive manufacturers globally, in order to address this issue automotive manufacturers are actively indulged in the production of vehicles by incorporating more aluminium components in the vehicle, thus, reducing the overall weight of the vehicle; for better fuel efficiency, increased performance and reduced emissions. To fulfil the demand for automotive sector, automotive component manufacturers are involved in designing and development of aluminium automotive components; for instance, Sapa AS, leading manufacturer of aluminium products launched the first-ever automotive break liners produced using aluminium. In 2016, the company showcased its newly developed aluminium brake liners for cars, which is nearly 600 grams lighter than the traditional steel brake liners used in cars.

Furthermore, development of full aluminium bodied pickup trucks and cars is expected to be the game changer in the coming years; for instance, in 2015, Ford Motor Company, launched world’s first ever aluminium bodied pickup truck, Ford F-150, the aluminium bodied pickup truck is nearly 700 pounds lighter as compared to the steel bodied FordF-150, making it lighter, fast, durable and enhancing the overall appeal of the vehicle. Thus, prevailing trend of increased use of aluminium is expected to surge demand for aluminium metal with more automotive manufacturers adopting aluminium for automotive production.

Aluminium Market – Competitive Analysis
