Aluminum Market: North America Remains at the Forefront of Global Demand

The North America aluminum market was valued at $12,076.0 million in 2015 and is projected to reach $17,995.6 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2016 to 2023. The transport segment dominated the market in 2015, with around one-third share, in terms of revenue.

Aluminum is a nonmagnetic and ductile metal with a dull luster due to thin aluminum oxide coating. Low metal density, corrosion resistance, and thermal conductivity are some properties, which makes it ideal for various industrial applications. Growth in transport industry is the major factor that drives the growth of the aluminum market across the globe. In addition, technological advancements and rapid development & urbanization in the emerging economies and growth in aluminum demand from various end-user industries such as foil & packaging supplement the market growth. Modern manufacturers are enhancing the design of aluminum cans to make the cans more hygienic. An overall increase in the production capacity by key leaders and high degree of vertical integration are observed in the industry. Manufacturers integrate their value chain to gain control over supply chain and offer aluminum products to end-use industries at reduced costs. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and Environment Protection Agency (EPA) are some of the regulatory authorities present in the aluminum market. Fluctuation in prices of raw materials, stringent government regulations toward usage of energy, and increase in substitutes such as carbon fiber hinder the growth of the aluminum market. However, rise in demand for recycled aluminum products and growth in usage of aluminum in emerging economies provide lucrative opportunities for market expansion.
