Increasing demand from end-use industries driving the global market

Large scale use of extruded aluminum products in a number of industries is impacting the growth of the aluminum extrusion market on a global level. Aluminum extrusion is the process of melting and transforming aluminum alloy into objects with definitive cross-sectional profiles for a number of industrial as well as domestic uses. For example, extruded aluminum products such as bars, beams, rods, and angles are widely used in the building & construction industry, the electrical industry for transmission and distribution of electricity, and the automotive industry, among others. In addition, the advantageous properties of aluminum like malleability, conductivity, and features like a low price, lightweight, recyclability, and availability of a number of alloys are further assisting the high demand for extruded aluminum products across the world.

Furthermore, industrial development in the Asia Pacific region coupled with rapid urbanization throughout the world has a high requirement for extruded aluminum. In addition, due to the low price of aluminum than steel, there is a growing demand for extruded aluminum, replacing conventional steel with aluminum. This trend could impact the market in the long run.

Moreover, technological development in the extrusion process of aluminum is expected to increase the demand for aluminum further. For instance, in June 2019, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory demonstrated the advanced extrusion process that can produce high-performance, high-ductile al-alloy products in a single stage, thereby; eliminating the several stages required in the conventional process. The aluminum extruded from this process can be used in the automobile industry, where high-strength aluminum alloys used to be avoided due to the high cost incurred. In 2018, the global aluminum extrusion market accounted for US$ 75.1 Bn and was estimated to grow with a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period.

Market Snapshot

New trend of light & swift electric cars is driving the automotive segment at the fastest pace.

Aluminum extrusion is widely used in the building & construction industry owing to its high strength-to-weight ratio, making it the most cost-effective to manufacture, deliver and install compared to steel. Additionally, modern buildings with sustainable features have a high demand for extruded aluminum for energy-efficient buildings.

Moreover, with the revolution of electric & hybrid cars, manufacturers are opting for material that reduces vehicle weight, thereby increasing mileage and performance of the vehicle with less emission. Aluminum extrusion is the best material source available on a global scale with top-quality products. Germany is one of the leading importers of aluminum extrusion, accounting for over one million tons per year. Most of the imported material demand is from the automotive industry.

Regional Analysis

Asia Pacific remains the largest market.

The Asia Pacific dominated the global market with a global share of around 60% in 2018. The growing requirement of extruded aluminum for infrastructure development in the developing regional countries such as China, India, and ASEAN countries has contributed majorly to the share.
