Building up: As nonresidential construction in California continues to rise, revenue will follow suit

Over the five years to 2017, the Aluminum Manufacturing industry in California has experienced healthy revenue growth. Revenue growth over the period has been driven primarily by increases in nonresidential construction activity. Nonresidential construction frequently uses industry products, such as aluminum wire, bars, tubes and panels, for a variety of building applications. This strong growth in nonresidential construction activity has helped drive demand for industry products, bolstering revenue over the period. However, volatile aluminum prices have affected industry players' profit margins. Over the five years to 2022, industry revenue is forecast to continue increasing. Revenue growth is expected to be supported by continued rises in nonresidential construction activity...purchase to read more.

    Alumina
  • A semi-processed form of aluminum obtained when bauxite, an aluminum-bearing ore, is refined.
  • Drawing
  • A process for producing wire, bar or tube by pulling metal, increasing its length and reducing its diameter. Wire is typically pulled through a series of dies (holes) of decreasing size.
  • Extruding
  • The process of forcing a solid and usually heated metal through an opening with the shape as the desired end-product. A hydraulically operated ram is used to push the metal through the opening.
  • Ingot
  • Semi-processed metal shapes that usually require further shaping, such as cold and hot working, cutting or milling to produce a useful final product.
  • Nonferrous Metals
  • Metals other than iron and steel.
  • Primary Manufacture
  • Production of metals in its most basic form.
  • Rolling
  • A process that reduces the thickness of a piece of metal by passing it through successive rotating mills that compress the metal.
  • Secondary Manufacture
  • Smelting, refining, and blending metal recovered from primary metal production or from recycled metal.
  • Semi-Fabrication
  • Includes several industrial processes for the production of rolled products, extrusions, wire, tubes, forgings and castings.
  • Unwrought
  • The output of primary and secondary aluminum production prior to further processing and fabrication
