The global aluminium rolled products industry is undergoing major developments, and CRU is at the cutting edge of research into this dynamic market. Detailed analysis is presented in our Aluminium Rolled Products Market Outlook. This report tackles the big issues facing the market. For example, what will be the impact of the huge rise in Chinese rolled products capacity and will China export greater volumes of rolled products displacing demand elsewhere? CRU undertakes detailed capacity forecasts on a mill-by-mill basis for China and the rest of the world. Moreover, we provide a thorough analysis of each end-use market including detailed coverage on all the important market trends.
It is not just China though that is causing ripples in the aluminium rolled products markets. Demand in the transportation sector is witnessing faster growth than any other sector, providing growth in mature markets as well. CRU's forecasts for product forms, which include areas such as automotive body sheet, coupled with our product prices, conversion margins and LME price forecasts provide key market insights. Elsewhere, the packaging market is also showing strong growth, as canstock consumption increases across the developing world.
