Aluminum Foil Market Trends

  • Growth of the global packaging industry is driving the market growth

Given that the product is extensively utilised for the packaging of several products, including food, drinks, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals, market growth is predicted to be boosted by the expansion of the worldwide packaging sector. Additionally, it is anticipated that the need for electric vehicles (EVs) and the rising need for air conditioning systems would contribute to aluminium foils' continued rise. The manufacturing of the product has increased due to soaring demand from the pharmaceutical business. For instance, Polfarmex invested in a new blister pack packaging plant in November 2021, boosting its manufacturing capacity by 60%.

To protect its domestic manufacturing sector, the U.S. slapped anti-dumping duties on nations like Oman and China for aluminium products like foils. Novelis Inc. intends to invest USD 7 million in July 2021 to reopen its aluminium foil production facility in Terre Haute, Indiana, USA. In 2014, Novelis Inc. halted producing as a result of unfavourable market conditions. Electric vehicles (EVs) must have batteries, and lithium-ion batteries have electrolytic capacitors made of aluminium foil. In the upcoming years, it is projected that EV market expansion would further boost product demand. For instance, Toyota Motor said in October 2021 that they intend to construct a USD 1.3 billion battery plant for electric and hybrid vehicles in North Carolina, United States.

Due to their lightweight, corrosion resistance, and insulating qualities, aluminium foils are in high demand in the building and construction industry. The use of the product in the nation is anticipated to increase due to rising investments in the building sector. For instance, the United States spent USD 1,589.0 billion on building in 2021, an increase of 8.2% above USD 1,469.2 billion in 2020. Growing consumer interest in recyclable and organic goods is boosting aluminium production. Due to the use of aluminium cans for beverage packaging, the industry is experiencing an increase in demand. It is also projected that the increasing popularity of aluminium trays and packed boxes made from aluminium containers in the food and beverage industry will fuel the expansion of the aluminium foil market.

Government regulations governing food safety and quality standards are helping the domestic aluminium foil industry grow by encouraging businesses to provide effective packaging solutions that prevent food contamination, which will further boost market growth. Aluminium foil is frequently combined with flexible films to create lightweight containers. The packaging for pet food, tuna, coffee, and soup alone produces 13 billion packets globally, making them viable substitutes for conventional plastic packaging and fostering the market's expansion. Thus, driving the Aluminum Foil market revenue.
