Aluminum Extrusions Market - Key Research Findings

  1. Global aluminum extrusions market size in 2018 – Nearly US$ 100 Mn

  2. The aluminum extrusions market will observe around 4.5% CAGR over 2019-2029.

  3. Most prominent end-user industry of the aluminum extrusions - Building & construction

    • Accounting for around 60% of the global aluminum extrusions consumption, building & construction will remain the most prominent end-use industry in aluminum extrusions market.

    • Machinery & equipment manufacturing and automotive industries also register significant consumption of aluminum extrusions.

  4. Most attractive regional market for aluminum extrusions - China

    • The evolving manufacturing sector in the country and the rising per capita GDP have resulted into demand for world-class infrastructure in the country.

    • The building & construction industry to primarily propel the aluminum extrusions market in China.

  5. APEC (Asia Pacific excluding China) holds high growth potential for the aluminum extrusions market.

    • The motor vehicle production in India and Thailand is growing at a significant pace along with the increasing usage of aluminum extrusions per vehicle. This has resulted in lucrative opportunities in the aluminum extrusions market of APEC.

    • As weight reduction of a motor vehicle is always desirable in order to improve its fuel efficiency without compromising with the strength of the vehicle, high-performance vehicles prefer maximum use of aluminum extrusions due to their light weight and structural strength.

  6. The building & construction industry in Europe and North America to grow in terms of aluminum extrusions consumption.

    • Desirable physical properties of aluminum such as lightweight, structural strength, water resistivity, eco-friendliness, and others, have made the usage of aluminum extrusion as a prominent material in building & construction.

    • Heat resistance of aluminum makes aluminum extrusions desirable for the construction of energy efficient buildings in terms of maintaining internal temperature and reducing the requirement of energy in heat-exchangers for maintaining the temperature.

    • Furthermore, various surface finish techniques such as anodizing, coating, chemical polishing, and others add to the aesthetics of aluminum extrusions, making them suitable for interior designing.

Top 3 Factors Shaping the Aluminum Extrusions Market

  • Increasing preference for aluminum over steel owing to superior performance of former

Aluminum is a lightweight metal, with around 1/3rd of the weight of steel or copper. However, its strength-to-weight ratio is high, which makes aluminum extrusions suitable for the construction industry.

Aluminum is around 43 times stronger than wood, and if properly treated or alloyed, it can be stronger than some steel grades as well. The ultimate tensile strength of aluminum material can reach up to 90,000 psi (pounds per square inch) or even more. Thus, the manufacturing sector is taking efforts to replace steel with aluminum.

  • Sustainability: Around 73% of the aluminum ever produced is still in use

The global manufacturing sector is gradually advancing towards a non-plastic world owing to the adverse effects of oil-based plastic materials on nature. Aluminum is one of the prominent sustainable materials and the most abundant metal on the earth’s crust.

Although steel is the most widely used alloy across the globe, the aluminum market has significantly high potential. Extremely long life of aluminum has resulted in the fact that 73% of the aluminum produced after 1886 is still in use today. Also, aluminum scrap can be completely recycled into new aluminum extrusions.

  • Volatile aluminum prices expected to be a setback for the market growth

Prices of aluminum extrusions are heavily dependent on the procurement price of aluminum ores. As majority of the aluminum extrusion firms have in-house foundries for the production of billets, the fluctuating prices of aluminum commodities impact both, the margins of aluminum extrusion manufacturers, and the price at which the end-consumer buys.
