Industry Insights

The global aluminum extrusion market size was accounted for USD 67.77 billion, in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 3.8% over the forecast period, 2020 to 2027. The major factor driving the market growth is the increasing demand for aluminum extrusion from the building & construction industry. Several benefits such as lightweight, low price, and recyclability factors of the material are fueling the demand for the product in the construction of buildings. In addition, rapid industrialization and urbanization in emerging regions, especially in the Asia Pacific are expected to surge the market growth during the forecast period.

China aluminium extrusion market

In China, the consumption of aluminum extrusion in the automotive & transportation industry has declined in 2020 due to the outbreak of COVID-19. However, stringent government regulations for lightweight vehicles are expected to drive market growth across the globe over the forecast period.

The halted construction activities are projected to boost the demand for the product in China. The government of China is supporting construction activities, which is also expected to propel the product demand in the residential sector. It is likely to protect the aluminum market in China from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Product Insights

By product, the aluminum extrusion market is fragmented into shapes, rods & bars, and pipes & tubes. In 2019, the segment of the shape held the largest market share of 80.2% in terms of revenue. Rising demand from the automotive, construction, and consumer goods sectors is a key factor driving the segment growth. The common shapes used are channels, angles, and tubing in building construction for sliding doors, windows, and railings. In the automobile sector, these shapes are used for exterior applications.

Rods and bars are extensively used in electrical transmission lines. Further, aluminum has 30% of the copper weight and 61% of the conductivity of copper while having 61% of the conductivity of copper along with low cost. Growing electricity demand from emerging economies is expected to boost the segment growth further over the next few years.

Pipes and tubes are projected to emerge as the fastest-growing segment, registering a CAGR of more than 5.0% in terms of revenue during the forecast period. Further, the growth of the construction industry is expected to boost the demand for tubes, as they support handrails and columns in buildings.

Application Insights

In 2019, the building & construction segment accounted for the largest market share of over 60.0% in terms of revenue. Post COVID-19 pandemic the construction industry in North America and Europe is expected to resume existing infrastructure and building projects. On the other hand, new construction projects are being takeup in the Asia Pacific, and the Middle East and Africa are expected to drive the market growth.

The automotive and transportation segment is likely to be hit due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Automotive production is expected to decline by 20% across the globe due to decreasing demand and supply chain disruptions. However, the growing demand for electric and lightweight vehicles is expected to drive market growth.

Global aluminum extrusion market

The electrical & energy application segment is projected to grow with a CAGR of over 4.5% in terms of revenue during the forecast period. Extruded aluminum is widely used in the wind & solar industry due to its better characteristics such as strength, lightweight, and corrosion resistance. Increasing demand for renewable energy sources, like solar & wind energy, is a key factor driving the segment growth.

Regional Insights

In 2019, Asia Pacific held the largest market share with more than 74.0%. This high revenue market share is attributed to the rapid growth of the automotive and construction industries in China. In this region, China accounted for 63.2% market share in terms of revenue. Governments of emerging countries such as China and India invested in smart cities, solar energy, railways, e-vehicle, defense, and metros projects. This factor is expected to boost the regional market growth in the next few years.

The European market has been negatively impacted due to slow economic growth caused by the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus. However, the market is expected to surge due to an increase in the number of construction projects in this region, as the construction sector is a significant contributor to Europe's economic growth.

North America is projected to grow at a CAGR of 2.2% from 2020 to 2027, in terms of revenue. In this region, the aluminum industry is hardly hit by the COVID-19 pandemic due to the decreasing demand from the construction & building industry.

Though the COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected the construction sector as well as the overall economic growth of the Middle East and Africa, the construction industry is expected to remain positive about its long-term prospects. The rapid growth of housing projects in Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Bahrain is anticipated to drive market growth in Middle East & Africa.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The outbreak of the COVID-19 virus has negatively impacted the aluminum extrusion market. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the sales of extruded aluminum in China is anticipated to be adverse. However, this impact is expected to be for the short term followed by a strong recovery in 2021. Further, the slow growth of the constriction industry due to the pandemic is likely to hamper the market growth across the globe. A strong rebound in the economic activity by the government of several countries following the relaxation of economic and social controls to recover from the impact of the pandemic.
