Aluminum is a silver-white metal, which plays an important supporting role in new industrialization, especially in the country’s vigorous development of emerging industries. Due to the continuous expansion of the scope of application of aluminum and its strong substitution, it has become one of the fastest growing varieties of non-ferrous metal consumption.
Affected by the epidemic, economic demand recovery in many overseas countries is faster than supply recovery, and the market is in short supply. Therefore, my country’s aluminum export will still maintain a relatively high growth.
In the domestic market, due to the gradual expansion of the application range of aluminum alloys in automotive lightweighting, the demand for aluminum alloys is also growing from the initial automobile axles and engine casings to the direction of full-aluminum body frames.
The most commonly used method of manufacturing aluminum metal is electrolytic aluminum. However, as the production capacity of domestic electrolytic aluminum approaches the ceiling, recycled aluminum will attract the attention of the entire aluminum industry because of its environmental protection and energy-saving concept.
At present, the proportion of waste aluminum recycling in my country has basically reached the level of developed countries, and as the demand for aluminum further increases, this proportion will continue to increase.
All in all, with the expansion of the application field of aluminum, the demand for aluminum at home and abroad will rise to a new level, which shows that the development prospect of the aluminum industry is still bright.
