The global aluminium market size was USD 164.23 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 242.44 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period.

Aluminium is an element with a silvery-white luster and is non-magnetic, and ductile in nature. It is the most abundant metal in the earth’s crust and is represented by the symbol Al. The metal is showcasing high demand from end-users including aerospace, electrical, and packaging. The increasing demand for packaged foods, coupled with the rising substitution of stainless steel with aluminium by automotive manufacturers is acting as a market driver. The rising demand for electric vehicles and OEM manufacturers is also supporting the growth of the market. However, disruptions in the supply chain due to temporary shutdowns of mines are projected to have negative effects on the market growth.

A Slowdown in Manufacturing Sector due to COVID-19 Pandemic to Decline Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic is constantly causing significant uncertainty in the market. The fall in the GDP of countries and the slowdown in the manufacturing sector have further reduced the activities for aluminium production. Mining activities of bauxite ore have been put on hold. The demand for semi-finished products from consumers is declining due to the shortage of workers in the manufacturing sectors, as well as the fall in demand from the aerospace and automotive industries. However, foils and cans producers are exhibiting positive growth due to the rising consumption of packaged foods.

 Rising Incorporation of Aluminium in the Automotive & Transportation Industry is a Current Trend

 Although aluminium has been used in automobiles for many years, its proportion of new vehicles is rising. This metal is highly preferred by automotive engineers and designers for reducing emissions and increasing fuel economy. Electric vehicle manufacturers are using this metal for reducing the weight of the vehicle and achieving a better driving range. Automotive manufacturers such as Mercedes and BMW are increasingly substituting stainless steel with aluminium as it exhibits similar physical properties and its lightweight nature. The above-mentioned factors are estimated to drive market growth.


Increasing Popularity of Secondary Aluminium to Drive Growth

Secondary or recycled aluminium accounts for a significant aluminium market share in global consumption. The scrap obtained from automotive, equipment, beverage cans, and machinery is reprocessed and reused due to its cost-efficiency. The reprocessing of secondary metal or scrap consumes a fraction of the energy required for producing new metal from ore, thereby reducing the harm towards the environment. Moreover, initiatives such as the establishment of car dismantling and shredding facilities and depollution centers are expected to boost market growth. Additionally, large scale adoption of the metal in the transportation industry is anticipated to further increase aluminium consumption.


 Implementation of Stricter Environmental Regulations to Hamper Growth

 The implementation of stringent environmental regulations by governments and associations will have a negative effect on the market. The rising environmental issues and continue increasing expectations from the citizens towards improving the rising pollution levels has forced several countries to incorporate a new set of rules. Smelting facilities have been asked to meet new emissions standards which have increased the cost of products. Furthermore, it is known to have detrimental effects on human beings. Its exposure can have effects such as headaches, rashes, asthma, and insomnia. The powdered form can ignite or explode, thereby posing workplace hazards and its inhalation can cause pulmonary fibrosis. The above-mentioned factors are anticipated to hamper the market growth.
