Automotive Aluminum Market
Automotive Aluminum Market

The Global Automotive aluminum market is expected to grow at a significant rate of around 9% during the forecast period. Aluminum is used in the automobile industry to create the body, frame, wheels, fuel systems, heat shields, and interiors of vehicles. Additionally, it is employed in the manufacture of numerous engine components, including cylinder heads, pistons, and radiators. Moreover, aluminum provides great stability, durability, and cost-effectiveness due to its lightweight, which is used in both passenger and commercial vehicles. Aluminum components assist a vehicle to accelerate more quickly and absorb more stress during an accident or collision than steel components do.

Some of the major players operating in the market include Alcoa Corporation, Novelis Inc., UACJ Corporation, Norsk Hydro ASA, AMG Advanced Metallurgical Group N.V., Constellium SE, Aluminum Corporation of China Limited, Rio Tinto Group, Aleris Corporation, and Jindal Aluminum. are some of the key players in the market.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst application, powertrain category to witness robust CAGR during the forecast period”

Based on material, the market is segmented into powertrain, chassis & suspension, and car body. The powertrain category is to witness a higher CAGR during the forecast. The powertrain of the car is one of the parts that propel the wheels. It encompasses the drivetrain as well as the engine of the machine. Aluminum is utilized in manufacturing even though this is an essential part of the car since it is robust and flexible, helps the car to weigh less, absorbs shock better than steel, has a high strength-to-weight ratio, and has other benefits. Therefore, these are the factors causing the industry to rise.

“Amongst application, the cast aluminum to hold a significant share in the market in 2020”

Based on application, the market is categorized into cast aluminum, rolled aluminum, and extruded aluminum. Among these, cast aluminum is to hold a significant share of the market in 2020. This is primarily because aluminum has a wide range of beneficial features, including practical strength, low density, high thermal conductivity, great machining behavior, and strong corrosion resistance. These are the primary advantages fueling the market’s expansion.

“North America to hold a significant share in the market”

In 2020, North America held a significant share of the global automotive aluminum market. Due to the high volume of vehicles produced and the introduction of corporate average fuel economy standards, which provide guidance to the auto industry to maintain fuel efficiency in the region, North America is predicted to increase at a significant CAGR throughout the projection period. Additionally, due to the region’s increasing industrialization, the Asia-Pacific region’s market is expanding at the quickest rate in the world. Because there is more discretionary money in the region, there is a growing demand for luxury automobiles, which has led to constant expansion in the Asia-Pacific automotive aluminum market.
