Industry Report - Industry SWOT Analysis Chapter

The Aluminum Manufacturing industry is in the mature stage of its life cycle. Over the 10 years to 2019, the industry's value added (IVA), or its contribution to the overall economy, is projected to increase at an annualized rate of 5.5%. Over the same period, GDP is forecast to grow at 2.7%.
