Lighten up: Demand for lightweight, fuel-efficient cars will spur demand for aluminum

Aluminum Manufacturing in the US

Aluminum manufacturers will begin to experience growth after suffering through the recession and experiencing low downstream demand from major industries. The revival in car and automobile manufacturing will particularly boost demand, as automakers use more aluminum in their process to make lighter and more fuel-efficient cars.

Companies in this industry refine aluminum-bearing bauxite into alumina, smelt alumina to produce aluminum and manufacture aluminum products (such as alloys, plate, sheet, foil and extrusions). The industry also includes companies that recover aluminum from scrap.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
