The Global Aluminium Market Outlook to 2027

LONDON, Nov. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- China which is the key player in the aluminium market has been slashing its aluminium capacity to help stabilise the market as well as reduce pollution. It is estimated that China will cut around 3-4 million tonnes of aluminium capacity this year. This may result in tighter market balance for some time and increase prices. The current price surge is more driven by non-market forces, though a downward price correction is expected due to weak demand and overproduction. Commodity Inside expects that China’s capacity closures will help in better market fundamentals in the short term. However, once the environmental compliance procedure is completed, the new and cost-efficient supply growth will substantially increase, which may impact the global aluminium market.

The current US administration understands the Chinese origin materials as a significant threat to its industry and is planning to limit it through tariff and other trade barriers to protect its domestic industry and create jobs. However, we expect that this will likely to impact the automotive sector in the US and will result in higher production costs. Aluminium is not the exception, and other materials such as steel have also been the target of rising trade barriers. If these proposals materialised then, it would result in a global trade war.

The global aluminium demand is still weak but will show some strength over the next ten years. The automotive sector has remained the key driver behind the growth. Most OEMs and auto body producers are located in developed markets so consequently the automotive sector dominates aluminium market in these markets. The usage of aluminium in the automotive sector is growing as aluminium is lighter than steel which makes it more ideal for vehicles. Light vehicles improve fuel efficiency, reduce carbon dioxide emission and are environment-friendly. The current wave of substituting steel with aluminium is mainly supported by the EU emissions scheme and the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) regulation in the US.
