Abstract, Snapshot, Market Analysis & Market Definition: Global Automotive Aluminum Market

The global Automotive Aluminum market size is projected to reach US$ 65.8 billion by 2026, from US$ 39.89 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 8.7% during 2021-2026. The expansion of the automotive sector along with increasing vehicle production are the key growth drivers.

Growing demand for automobiles in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific countries namely U.S., Germany, and China is likely to propel the demand for aluminum components in these regions. Germany with its close association with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) of high-end passenger cars such as Audi, Mercedes, and BMW is likely to ensure long-term growth prospect in the forthcoming years.

Aluminum is majorly being used in the automotive industry owing to its properties such as high strength, light weight, recyclability, corrosion resistance, and thermal and electrical conductivity. It is extensively being used in passenger cars, truck, and buses. Moreover, at the end of the vehicles life, about 90% of the aluminum used is recycled.

The use of aluminum in various components including hybrid engine compartment, roof, damper strut console, and doorframes by different automakers has surged in the recent past to improve the efficiency of vehicles.For instance, it has been reported that Mercedes Benz GLA and Mercedes Benz S Class (W222) had around 240 kg and 380 kg of aluminum content as of 2016 respectively.

Growing usage of secondary or recycled aluminum is a key focus area for many vehicle manufacturers. In February 2016, Novelis entered into a partnership with Jaguar Land Rover and launched a new alloy RC5754 with 75% high recycled content for automotive production.

Key Players, Recent Developments & Regional Insights: Global Automotive Aluminum Market

In terms of volume, the powertrain segment is projected to expand at CAGR of 9.3% from 2019 to 2025.The growing interest in hybrid technology along with improving fuel economy and reducing fuel emissions has created a positive impact on the electric vehicles market. Hybrid and electric powertrain containing aluminum is projected to represent numerous opportunities on account of increasing demand for electric vehicles in the coming years.

In terms of revenue, body structure application accounted for 31.4% market share in 2018. The growth is attributed to increasing production capacities in China, U.S. and India. For instance, in August 2018, Toyota announced its plan to open a new plant in Guangzhou, China to increase its production capacity by around 24% a year.

Cast spun aluminum wheels are being used for manufacturing cars as it reduces weight of the system resulting in lower spring rates and damping vibrations. In terms of volume, the suspension segment accounted for a share of 29.3% of the global automotive aluminum market in 2018 and is expected to expand at CAGR of 6.6% from 2019 to 2025.

End Use Insights

In terms of revenue, passenger cars accounted for a market share of nearly 69.4% in 2018. Growing demand for lightweight products in passenger cars is the result of strict CO2 emission laws being laid down around the world. With the use of aluminum, the weight of various parts of a car can be drastically reduced, resulting in improved fuel efficiency.

Increasing demand for light commercial vehicles due to improvements in logistics and transportation along with stringent fuel emission standards is likely to promote the growth in production of pick up vans, small trucks, and electric small trucks. Using lightweight materials such as aluminum in light commercial vehicles provide solutions for safety, fuel costs, and efficient haul transportation.

Government initiatives for automakers are anticipated to create growth opportunities in the market. In July 2018, the Indian government announced an increase in load carrying capacity of trucks to avoid overloading and to reduce the logistic costs for the consumer. This in turn, is projected to boost the demand for heavy trucks in the country.

Regional Insights

In terms of revenue, Asia Pacific is projected to remain the largest regional market over the forecast period. The region accounted for 38.1% of revenue share in 2018. The increasing demand for automobiles in countries such as China and India coupled with growing investments in regional automotive sector are the key growth factors. In July 2018, Volkswagen Group announced its plan to invest around USD 1.12 billion by 2021 in India with an aim to expand its presence in the country.

In terms of revenue, North America is projected to expand at highest CAGR of 10.9% during the forecast period. Consumer preferences towards high quality and fuel-efficient motor vehicles coupled with stringent CAFE regulations to improve the fuel economy of the vehicles are likely to increase the use of aluminum in the automotive industry in the region in the coming years.

European automotive industry is anticipated to be driven by the establishment of new plants, policies, and innovations. For instance, in July 2018, BMW announced plans to invest USD 1.71 billion in a new car factory in Hungary. Thus, the establishment of new manufacturing plants is anticipated to increase the demand for aluminum in the European automotive sector.
