In this report, Technavio highlights the advances in the aluminum market as one of the key emerging trends in the global sheet metal market:

Global sheet metal market: Advances in the aluminum market

Aluminum is one of the major raw materials used for sheet metal production; thus, technological or product advances in the aluminum market will have a direct impact on the global sheet metal market. Aluminum is a chief component used to produce drink cans, airplane parts, automobiles, laptops, and mobile phones.

“The production process for aluminum releases high quantities of carbon emissions, negatively impacting the environment. This has been overcome by new advances in technology to reduce the CO2 emissions and production-related expenses. For the process, inert anodes are used instead of carbon-rich anodes, leading to the production of oxygen instead of carbon dioxide. Thus, the increasing adoption of such manufacturing processes across the globe will increase the production of aluminum, in turn, driving the production of sheet metals in the future,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on metals and minerals.
