Aluminum Flat-Rolled Products Market Overview


Global Aluminum Flat-Rolled Products Market is projected to register a healthy CAGR of 7.26% to reach USD 80,589.5 Million by the end of 2024.


Aluminum rolling is one of the prime methods of converting cast aluminum slab from the smelters and wrought re-melts into a usable industrial form such as plates, sheets, strip, or foil. The flat-rolled products are produced by reducing a preheated aluminum slab via successive passes between paired, flat-surfaced steel rolls to attain the desired final thickness. The lightweight, high strength, and durability of the aluminum make rolled aluminum as one of the most versatile materials available for major industries such as packaging, transportation, and building and construction. Hot rolling and cold rolling are the methods used in the manufacturing of flat-rolled aluminum products.


The automotive and aerospace industries are amongst the major consumers of aluminum rolled products, wherein the demand for aluminum flat-rolled products is increasing owing to the high strength-to-weight ratio, high tolerance to extreme temperatures, and energy efficiency offered by aluminum. Moreover, its ability to be recycled repeatedly, makes it a good choice as manufacturers pursue sustainability initiatives, thus favoring the product demand. Packaging industry is the other lucrative market for aluminum flat-rolled products, the coil sheet and can stock products are widely used for manufacturing packaging foils and beverage cans respectively.


Market Dynamics


The prominent growth driver for the global aluminum flat-rolled products market is the increasing demand for these products in the packaging and automotive industries. The increasing consumption of aluminum flat-rolled products in the packaging sector owing to the growing use of flexible foil-based packaging in the food & beverage industry is the prominent factor expected to drive the global market growth. In addition, the demand for aluminum foils in medical packaging is gaining momentum and is expected to contribute to the growth of the global market in the coming years. Likewise, the increasing demand for aluminum flat-rolled products in the automotive industry to manufacture lightweight fuel-efficient automobiles is also expected to boost the growth of the global market.


The building & construction industry is projected to be a lucrative market for aluminum flat-rolled product manufacturers. Aluminum flat-rolled products are widely used in the construction of commercial buildings, as they allow to build complex shapes on long continuous pieces, and they can be exploited for numerous different construction materials. These products comprise a combination of different mechanical properties that ensure the ability of the facade to resist pressure imparted due to the wind, the weight of other components, and the capacity to accommodate possible structural movements.


The growth of these industries across the globe, especially in the Asia-Pacific and the Middle East & Africa, is likely to favor the market growth in the years to follow.

Jan 2022 EBNER Group, located in Austria, has purchased a majority shareholding in Hazelett Strip-Casting Corporation of Colchester. The firms work together to provide the aluminum, steel, and copper base metals industries with a comprehensive range of furnace facilities, project management, upstream and downstream auxiliary equipment, and services. The EBNER Group will provide whole process lines to the aluminum flat-rolled products industry, utilizing Hazelett twin-belt continuous casting technology, in collaboration with Mino. Hazelett technique is utilized in metal manufacturing operations worldwide to cast aluminum, lead and zinc into metal strip and bar that is then used to make a variety of products. Hazelett has been fabricating and manufacturing continuous casting machines for the metal industry for almost a century.

Jan 2022
GreenCircle has independently verified that three of Novelis' alloys manufactured for the building and construction industries contain up to 99 percent recycled content, according to Novelis Inc., the world leader in aluminum rolling and recycling. Novelis maximizes the environmental benefits of higher recycled content across its product portfolio by recycling aluminum alloys to preserve their value. These continuous cast factories produce a flat-rolled aluminum sheet with between 77 percent and 99 percent recycled content for the commercial transportation and building & construction markets.

In July 2018
, Hindalco announced the acquisition of Aleris, one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of aluminum rolled products globally, at an enterprise value of USD 2.5 billion. This acquisition is in line with its strategy to increase the sale in the lucrative aerospace and automotive industries.


In September 2018
