Report Overview: Aluminum Flat Products MarketThe global aluminum flat products market size was valued at USD 53.8 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to attain a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.1% from 2021 to 2027. Increasing penetration of aluminum in vehicles on account of its lightweight properties is projected to fuel the growth of the market. Aluminum and its various alloy products are lightweight in nature and also have characteristics such as corrosion resistance, ductility, and high strength. These aluminum flat products also show excellent flexibility and rigidity with reduction in temperature. Lightweight properties of aluminum flat products are likely to assist in smaller carbon footprint, lower costs, more robust and corrosion-resistant products in end-use industries such as automotive, aerospace, and construction. In terms of revenue, the market for aluminum flat products in the U.S. is projected to witness a CAGR of 2.9% from 2021 to 2027. Government policies regarding the manufacturing of auto components are projected to remain key focus areas for market vendors. In August 2018, USMCA was formed by the President of the U.S as a new agreement between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada. Under this agreement, the majority of cars and trucks accounted for 75.0% of a vehicle component to be manufactured in North America in order to qualify for zero tariffs. North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) announced that the cars and trucks need to achieve the 54.5 mpg fuel efficiency by 2025. The increased utilization of aluminum flat products to reduce vehicle and aircraft weight has been driving market growth. Vehicles are being manufactured with high fuel efficiency in order to satisfy the regulatory requirements and achieve the targets set to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The use of aluminum instead of steel and iron is anticipated to propel market growth over the forecast period 2021-2027. The use of sheets and plates in automotive manufacturing is witnessing an increase on account of their lightweight as well as good formability offered. The aesthetics and crashworthiness of the car are essential factors in automotive manufacturing.
Product Insights: Aluminum Flat Products MarketAluminum plates accounted for a share of 42.0% in 2019, in terms of volume. Aluminum plates have wide usage in the end-use industry and are used in applications such as furniture, interior, and exterior of vehicles, aircraft, household appliances, and various machines. Advancements in civil engineering have resulted in an increased number of skyscrapers around the world. The key material that initiated the aesthetic aspect of skyscrapers is aluminum as the product is widely utilized in the installation of facades. Skyscrapers require sturdy and lightweight aluminum frames to support the glass face of the building. In terms of revenue, sheets are projected to witness a CAGR of 3.4% in the market for aluminum flat products from 2020 to 2027. Aluminum sheets have a wide range of applications in the end-use industry. Some of the applications include aircraft skins, heat exchangers, exteriors and structures of automobiles, small boat hulls, trailer, and van panels, flashing, roofing, siding, curtain wall, and gutter panels for industrial, commercial, and residential buildings, home appliances, cooking utensils, food and beverage cans, and light bulb bases.
Application Insights: Aluminum Flat Products MarketBuilding and construction application segment accounted for volume share of 37.5% in 2019. The use of recycled materials is projected to remain key focus areas driving the demand for aluminum flat products. Extraction of recyclable materials also creates a positive impact on the environment. In terms of revenue, the automotive and transportation segment is projected to witness a growth rate of 3.6% in the aluminum flat products market over the forecast period. Increasing use of aluminum flat products in aircraft and vehicles on account of its lightweight properties is projected to drive market growth over the coming years. Aluminum has the highest strength to weight ratio which makes it suitable in aerospace applications. Many air transportation companies are replacing their old models with modern and fuel-efficient models, which is likely to remain key driver for the rising demand for aluminum flat products. Aircraft experienced harsh environments such as freezing temperatures, and rainstorms. Products in such cases protect the aircraft and withstand environmental corrosion.
Regional Insights: Aluminum Flat Products MarketIn terms of revenue, Asia Pacific held the largest market share of 72.8% in 2019 and is projected to witness a revenue-based CAGR of 3.6% from 2021 to 2027.
