Rising Number of Car Dismantling Facilities to Spur Demand

Nowadays, recycled or secondary aluminium is being consumed more worldwide. This is because the reprocessed scrap obtained from machinery, automotive, beverage cans, and equipment are cost-effective. The process also requires only a fraction of energy and hence reduces environmental harm. In addition to this, the increasing number of depollution centers and car dismantling facilities across the globe would propel growth. Besides, the extensive usage of this metal in the transportation industry is expected to bolster the aluminium market growth in the near future. However, the COVID-19 pandemic may hinder growth backed by the declining demand from the automotive and construction industries.
