Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

The Aluminum Manufacturing industry refines aluminum-bearing bauxite into alumina and smelts alumina to produce aluminum. Companies also recycle aluminum from scrap metal, which is a less energy-intensive process. Operators then manufacture aluminum alloys, plates, sheets, foils and extrusions for downstream manufacturing and construction markets. Aluminum products are primarily used as inputs in automotive and aerospace structures, engines and parts; packaging materials; construction; electronics; and appliances.

The industry was hit hard by the economic downturn and continued to fare poorly during the slower-than-expected recovery... purchase to read more
