Market Dynamics

Secondary Aluminum’s rising popularity in Developing Nations to Boost Market Growth

Secondary Aluminum’s rising popularity in Developing Nations to Boost Market Growth. Aluminum recycled or used again makes up a sizeable component of global use. Scrap from machines, cars, equipment, and Aluminum cans is repurposed and recycled because it is economical. Reprocessing recycled metal or scrap reduces environmental damage by using a fraction of the energy required to create new metal.

Numerous uses across several industries to Drive the Market Growth

Due to its distinct physical features, Aluminum has more applications and is in increasing demand across various industries. Because it is inexpensive and has good electrochemical performance, metal is employed for long-distance power transmission. Among them is Aluminum. This industry frequently employs Aluminum alloys like 6061 because they are easy to cast and form into the wings and cabins of small aircraft. Its superb corrosion resistance makes it the perfect material for use in aircraft. Due to its thermal characteristics, Aluminum is utilized in heat transfer, heating and cooling, and HVAC systems.

Recent Developments

  • April 2022, a high-tech company, PyroGenesis Canada Inc. announced a joint initiative with process optimization and applied engineering firm on its aluminum business offerings in the global industry. The focus of this venture is to use zero-emission plasma torches of PyroGenesis in carbon anode baking, which is a vital upstream step in the production process of aluminum. Use of plasma torches in scrap re-melting and furnace holding in the aluminum industry is expected to increase demand for aluminum in the market.

  • May 2022, South32 Limited announced to acquire additional 16.6% share in Mozal Aluminium from MCA metals Holding GmbH (Mitsubishi) with final consideration of USD 2,002 million. This reflects working capital adjustments and elevated cash from continuous benefits from aluminum prices to continue increasing exposure to metals that is significant for a low carbon future. Eco-friendly developments are expected to support demand for aluminum in the market.

Top Trends in Global Aluminum Market

  • One trend Vantage Market Research (V.M.R.) expects to see in the Aluminum industry is increased demand from the building and construction industry. Aluminum is the second most commonly utilized metal in the construction and building sector. It is widely used in skylights, curtain walls, decking and cladding, solar shade, photovoltaic arrays, railings, shelves, and other makeshift shelters. One of the main reasons propelling the market is an increase in construction activities worldwide.

  • Another trend that V.M.R. predicts will continue in the Aluminum industry is the robust growth of end-use sectors. Construction and packaging are only two examples of the end-use sectors that support the industry. In the upcoming years, the expanding vehicle sector is anticipated to fuel an increase in Aluminum demand in other countries. Due to the rising consumption of aerospace companies, the demand for Aluminum is anticipated to increase further in various European and American countries.
