Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Over the past five years, revenue for the Aluminum Manufacturing industry has fluctuated dramatically due to volatile aluminum prices and worldwide demand. Revenue surged over 2011 as aluminum prices spiked in response to rebounding postrecession demand, particularly from emerging markets. However, as growth slowed in emerging economies and remained uncertain in developed countries, aluminum prices started to deteriorate in 2012, with overall annualized revenue declining over the five years to 2016. Despite these challenges, the industry is poised for strong recovery and organic growth over the next five years, in which revenue is forecast to increase, strengthened by demand from downstream manufacturing and costruction industries.
