Aluminum Market Insights

Aluminum Market size was valued at USD 170.7 billion in 2019 and is poised to grow from USD 179.9 billion in 2023 to USD 256.53 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.2% in the forecast period (2024-2031).

The global aluminum industry has been growing due to China's quickly increasing need for this plentiful base metal. In China, the bulk of industries are owned by the government. Many of these companies are rapidly growing and evolving. Consequently, it increases the need for Aluminum. Aluminum is widely used in China's construction, packaging, transportation, and electrical sectors, to name a few. These four industries collectively use the majority of the Aluminum that the Chinese industry uses annually. The government is working very hard to make aluminum more available to industrialists. Its outcomes are expected to have a substantial impact on the growth of the global aluminum market.

Nevertheless, there are a few issues that are keeping the global aluminum sector from growing. One of them is the fact that producing aluminum from bauxite through mining and processing is not at all environmentally friendly. In response to this reality, several Aluminum refineries produce and market secondary Aluminum. Long- and short-term market growth for Aluminum are forecasted to be hampered by this.

US Aluminum Market is poised to grow at a sustainable CAGR for the next forecast year.

Aluminum Market Dynamics

Aluminum Market Driver

  • Affordability and Wide Applications of Base Metal into Various Sectors Boosting Market Growth

A sizable portion of the world's usage of aluminum is secondary or recycled. Due to its affordability, scrap from machinery, automobiles, equipment, and beverage cans is recycled and reused. Reprocessing used metal or scrap causes less environmental harm because it uses a small amount of energy compared to mining new metal from ore. Additionally, initiatives like the creation of depollution centers and facilities for dismantling and shredding cars are anticipated to accelerate market expansion. The widespread use of the material in the transportation sector is also predicted to boost aluminum consumption.

Aluminum Market Restraint 

  • Governments and organizations' implementation of rigorous environmental rules will hurt the market. Numerous nations have had to adopt new regulations as a result of the expanding environmental problems and the population' growing expectations for government action to reduce pollution levels. The cost of goods has grown as a result of smelting operations being required to fulfill higher emissions requirements. It is also known to harm people, so that is another factor. Headaches, rashes, asthma, and sleeplessness are among the side effects of exposure to it. Inhaling the powdered form can result in lung fibrosis, and it can ignite or explode in the workplace. It is projected that the aforementioned reasons will impede market expansion.
