According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Aluminum Extrusion Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024”, the global aluminum extrusion market size reached 19.1 Million Metric Tons in 2018. Aluminum extrusion is defined as the process of transforming aluminum alloys into specific shapes by pushing them through a cross-sectional die. Extruded aluminum is exceptionally lightweight, cost-effective and corrosion resistant. It also offers high ductility, better electric conductivity and can be repeatedly recycled without losing its integrity. In addition to this, it is extremely durable and stable while being highly malleable in nature. Consequently, it is widely utilized for the transportation and disposal of mined materials and the manufacturing of various aircraft parts. Owing to the multiple advantages offered by aluminum extrusion products, they are also extensively utilized across numerous industrial verticals, which include automotive, electrical and construction.
Global Aluminum Extrusion Market Trends:
The growing preference for green construction is a key factor driving the growth of the market. Rising environmental consciousness has led to the widespread utilization of various eco-friendly and energy-efficient materials, including extruded aluminum in construction projects. Extruded aluminum is widely used in the construction of doors, windows, panels, ladders and bridges and forms a key component in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)-certified green buildings. This, along with significant growth in the construction industry, is providing a thrust to the market growth. Moreover, as it is lightweight, it is extensively utilized in the automotive industry as a convenient alternative to steel. It also aids in improving the fuel efficiency of vehicles while resulting in lesser amounts of greenhouse gas emissions. Furthermore, extruded aluminum is also used in numerous home appliances as it is a good thermal conductor and is extremely cost-efficient. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is expected to reach a volume of 26.0 Million Metric Tons by 2024, registering a CAGR of around 5.1% during 2019-2024.
