Automotive Aluminum Market- Trends, Outlook, Industry Insights and Opportunity Analysis, 2016–2024

Posted June 27, 2017 by donaldlee

Automotive manufacturers are focusing on improving performance, fuel economy and reducing emissions, without affecting the size, safety and capability, a factor that has led to significant growth of the automotive aluminum market.

Aluminum is found in nature in the form of aluminum sulfates and can also be produced from bauxite, which comprises various elements such as aluminum hydroxide, silicon, titanium, sulfur, gallium, vanadium oxides, chromium, iron, sulfuric calcium, and magnesium carbonates, among others. Aluminum is significantly lighter than steel, has good tensile strength, and is easier to mold, making it a preferred choice in various industries. Vehicles manufactured using advanced aluminum alloys are more fuel efficient, with less life-cycle carbon emissions as compared to vehicles manufactured using steel. Aluminium is versatile in nature, which enables automobile manufacturers to combine it with other metals or with materials such as fiberglass and plastics to enhance specific properties. Also, aluminium has the capacity to absorb twice the crash energy as compared to mild steel, which makes it safer.

Heavy commercial vehicles
On the basis of sales channel, Global market is classified into:
Original equipment manufacturer
Aluminium castings are used in various parts of automobiles such as alternator housing, carburetors, wheels, valve covers, engine block, transmission housings, wheel spacer, impellers, and fan clutch. Aluminium sheets are used in complete vehicle body, structural components, car trims and sealing, body panels, side walls, hood, doors, and trunks. Extruded aluminium is used to manufacture roof rails and sunroofs. The use of aluminium in automobiles has provided numerous benefits such as good formability, great potential in weight reduction, excellent corrosion behavior in presence of thermal load, high yield strength, and dent resistance capability, high-quality surface finish and recyclability. Original equipment manufacturers contribute a major share in the automotive aluminum market.
Automotive Aluminum Market Outlook – Rising demand for lightweight and fuel efficient automobiles supplementing market growth
North America is expected to dominate the automotive aluminum market over the forecast period. This is mainly attributed to the stringent implementation of yield strength standards. CAFÉ Standards were implemented in the U.S. in order to reduce energy consumption by increasing fuel economy in cars, van, light trucks, and heavy trucks. This has augmented growth of the market in the region. Asia Pacific is expected to follow North America in the consumption of automotive aluminium. This is mainly attributed to increasing discretionary income in the region and supportive government initiatives, especially in the growth engines of the region — China and India. For instance, the Indian government allows for 100% FDI in the automotive industry, which accounts for 7.1% of the country’s GDP. Furthermore, as highlighted by India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the Indian government aims to make automobiles manufacturing the mainstay of its ambitious Make in India initiative and projects the passenger vehicles market to triple to 9.4 million units by 2026, as highlighted in the Auto Mission Plan (AMP) 2016–2026. This trend is expected to follow over the forecast period.  ASI Performance Standard (Principles and Criteria launched December 2014) and ASI Chain of Custody Standard govern the automotive aluminum industry. These standards are applicable on all the phases of manufacturing aluminium which include bauxite mining, alumina purification, primary aluminium production, stages such as rolling, forging, extrusion and foundry, material alteration, and refining and re-melting of recycled scrap.

High cost of automotive aluminium as compared to steel and cast iron is one of the restraining factors for the automotive aluminum market. Also, introduction of new materials like reinforced plastic has restrained the market growth of automotive aluminum on a global scale. Research and development on alternative methods to produce aluminium at a lower cost and ecofriendly manufacturing processes to reduce environmental damage are some of the key strategies adopted by the top market players. Some of the companies operating in the global automotive aluminum market are Alcoa Inc., Arconic Inc., UACJ Corporation, CHALCO, AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group, Norsk Hydro ASA, Constellium N.V., Novelis Inc., and Rio.
