In the future, the demand for aluminum for China's aviation and many rail transportation is increasing day by day!

Aluminum profile is a widely used metal material, not only the daily life of aluminum profile, aerospace, automotive and other high-end manufacturing also need aluminum support. A review of the development of the global aluminum industry, we can see that the aluminum consumption in the global scope, basically in various application areas are to maintain growth, expand the power of its growth not only from the application of its scale, more driven by the increasing degree of aluminum application.

Aluminum consumption in China is growing strongly

According to data show that in 2016 China's total aluminum consumption reached 32 million 500 thousand tons, an increase of 8%, is expected in 2017 aluminum consumption will reach 3470 tons, an increase of 6.77%. According to the "13th Five-Year" non-ferrous metal industry planning, by 2020 China's total aluminum consumption will reach 43 million tons, an average annual compound growth rate during 2016-2020 (CAGR) will reach 7.24%.

From the downstream industry applications, the construction industry is still the largest application areas of aluminum in China, accounting for 33%, followed by transportation, electricity, packaging, machinery manufacturing. To the United States, for example, transportation is the largest use of aluminum, accounting for 39%.

Car "lightweight" pull aluminum consumption expansion

The automotive industry is the largest aluminum industry. Because of its low density and the ability to absorb energy per unit mass, aluminum alloy is the preferred material for automotive lightweight.

In the future, the demand for aluminum for China's aviation and many rail transportation is increasing day by day!

In 2016, the average amount of aluminum used per car in developed countries averaged 150-160 kg / car, and the rate of aluminum content was over 15%. The amount of aluminum used in China's automobile was about 110 kg / car, and the rate of aluminum was only 5%, which was obviously different from that of developed countries.

According to forecasts, in 2020, China's bicycle aluminum volume reached 180KG/ vehicles, the new energy vehicles reached 200KG/ vehicles, then China's car monomer aluminum volume will increase by 13% per year. In the future, the demand for aluminum for China's aviation and many rail transportation is increasing day by day!

ABS sheet is automobile body sheet, sheet metal punching special passenger car, is the highest threshold of production technology and high yield of the plate and strip, thickness of 0.8mm-1.8mm, width is 800mm-2200mm.

According to Aetna data, in 2015 the global automotive body sheet aluminum 1 million 850 thousand tons, in 2025 the global demand for ABS will reach 12 million tons. In 2015, the amount of automobile ABS in China was only 32 thousand tons. In 2025, China's demand is expected to reach 3 million 500 thousand tons, and the compound growth rate will remain about 60%.

Aviation industry into cutting-edge high-end aluminum market

High strength aluminum alloy has many advantages, such as low density, high strength and good thermal processing property. The sheet metal, extrusion section, hub and so on, are widely used in aerospace components. For example, high-strength aluminum alloy plate as the main load-bearing components, the use of the proportion of the total amount of aluminum on the plane 30%-35%.

In the future, the demand for aluminum for China's aviation and many rail transportation is increasing day by day!

Our data show that in 2016 the global annual growth of 8%-9% aluminum products, aviation aluminum content of more than 30 tons. With the rapid growth of the global aviation industry, especially in the Asia Pacific region, according to the amount of aircraft delivered and single aluminum consumption, 2016-2020 years, the global aviation aluminum demand will exceed 2 million tons, with an average annual output of more than 40 tons.

In the future, the demand for aluminum for China's aviation and many rail transportation is increasing day by day!

At present our country aviation high-end aluminum more dominated by imports, according to the Ministry of planning and development of nonferrous metals industry "(2016-2020)" pointed out that 2017 will be pushing domestic aviation aluminum, aluminum will focus on brand development and application as a key work plan, and strive to break through technical barriers, to achieve the purpose of all domestic aluminum.

The aluminum market for rail transportation has developed rapidly

The existing city rail transportation equipment mainly includes subway, light rail, maglev, low-speed maglev, EMU car body general maglev vehicle and the speed is greater than 200km/h is aluminum manufacturing, light rail and subway car 35% is Aluminum Alloy manufacturing.

In the future, the demand for aluminum for China's aviation and many rail transportation is increasing day by day!

The aluminum used in the rolling stock is mainly extruded aluminum, accounting for about 76% of the total aluminum content, and about 24% of the plates, foils, tubes and belts.
