Published Date: | Report Code : MT1919192


Automotive Aluminum Market industry research report is an in-depth study on the current state of the global automotive aluminum industry. Aluminum is a silvery-white, soft, lightweight, malleable, nonmagnetic, and ductile metal found in around 8% of the crust of the earth. Aluminum is recognized as the most widely used nonferrous metal and is used in different end-use industries such as transportation, aerospace & defense, building & construction, packaging, electrical & electronics, utensils, furniture & fixtures, engineering manufacturing, and others. In the automotive industry, aluminum is used extensively. The accelerating demand for aluminum in the automotive industry is due to its cost-effectiveness, strength, stability, and durability. In 1901, the first automotive engine with aluminum parts was manufactured by Carl Benz. Aluminum then witnessed a fall in demand till 1960. After 1960, the demand for aluminum from the automotive industry increased when Land Rover produced V-8 engine blocks using aluminum. Aluminum finds application in different parts of a vehicle such as transmission and suspension systems, wheels, cylinders, brake systems, heat shields & exchangers, roof, trim, fuel systems, etc.

The demand for lightweight automotive body parts has grown in recent times to further boost fuel efficiency and reduce the emission of harmful carbon and nitrogen gases. According to a study, if the weight of a vehicle can be reduced to 100 kg, the fuel consumption of that vehicle can be declined by 0.35 to 0.55 liter per 100 km, which further reduces carbon dioxide emission. Hence, lightweight vehicles are gaining popularity.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Superior cost benefit, high mechanical properties such as lightweight, crash energy absorption, durability, and others to that of competing materials
  • Increasing fuel prices and growing government regulations on vehicle emission controls
  • Improving economic conditions and increasing spending power of consumers in developing economies
  • Growth in electric vehicles (EVs) market across regions
  • High research & development spending by leading automotive aluminum product manufacturers to retain a competitive market position
