Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Weakened demand and prices for aluminum have led industry output to decline over the past five years. Over the next five years, the Aluminum Manufacturing industry will benefit from rising investment in new structures, machinery and equipment that use aluminum inputs. In addition, increasing fuel and emissions standards from the Canadian and US governments will further reinforce demand for aluminum in automotive and aerospace applications. Moreover, improvements in the US construction sector in coming years will help bolster export sales. Strengthening demand for aluminum worldwide will support higher prices for aluminum, bolstering industry revenue... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

The Aluminum Manufacturing industry produces alumina and primary aluminum, as well as processed aluminum products, such as sheet, plate, foil, rods, bars and tubes. In addition, some operators produce secondary aluminum from recycled aluminum scrap. Exports of primary aluminum for further processing generate the majority of industry revenue; most exported aluminum is shipped to the United States, which alone accounts for over three-fourths of industry revenue. Due to its high strength-to-weight ratio, aluminum is widely used as an alternative to steel in transportation equipment, such as automobiles and airplanes. Moreover, aluminum foil, which provides a complete barrier to light, oxygen, moisture and bacteria, is a popular material in food and pharmaceutical packaging... purchase to read more
