Shining future: Rising demand from automakers will be a major driver of industry growth

Aluminum Manufacturing in the US

The Aluminum Manufacturing industry has endured significant volatility over the past five years due to fluctuations in aluminum prices, which reflect global supply and demand trends. In the coming years, the industry is expected to continue to globalize as US and global construction and manufacturing markets gain strength. In particular, rising demand from automakers will be a major driver of industry growth.

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.
