These countries together are expected to constitute 57% of the global construction industry growth by 2030. This is likely to drive the demand for aluminum extrusion over the coming years.

Aluminum extrusion is used in light weight frames and structures in solar energy industry for converting sunlight to green power. Progress in solar energy industry is anticipated to boost the demand for aluminum extrusion. As per the statistics of the International Renewable Energy Agency, the global solar capacity expanded at a CAGR of 31.2% from 2013 to 2017, and it is expected to continue to grow in coming years as well.

The growing demand for aluminum extrusion is compelling new manufacturers to enter the market. However, setting up a new aluminum extrusion manufacturing plant requires huge capital investments owing to high plant and machinery costs.

Product Insights

Aluminum extruded shapes was the largest segment and accounted for a market revenue share of 80.5% in 2018. The growth is attributable to the increasing demand for aluminum extrusion from automobiles, buildings, and consumer goods sectors. The commonly used shapes are channels, angles, and tubing. In buildings, these products are used in sliding doors, windows, and railings. In automobiles, they are used in exterior applications.

Aluminum extruded rods & bars are widely used in electrical transmission lines, as aluminum transmits double the electric current per pound than copper, making it a cost-effective solution. According to the International Energy Agency, the global electricity demand increased by 4% from 2017 to 2018. The rising electricity demand is likely to increase the consumption of aluminum extruded rods & bars over the coming years.

Aluminum extruded pipes & tubes is expected to be the fastest-growing product segment in the market. In terms of revenue, the segment is projected to ascend at a CAGR of 6.5% over the forecast period. The growth is attributable to the rising demand for pipes from heat exchangers owing to their high thermal conductivity.

The increasing demand from construction industry is expected to drive the demand for tubes. Tubes are used in handrails and support columns in buildings. Pipes & tubes are available in various shapes, such as rectangle, square, and round, in different dimensions. The increasing utilization of pipes & tubes owing to the advancing construction industry is anticipated to augment the growth of aluminum extrusion market over the coming years.

Application Insights

Automotive & transportation segment accounted for a market volume share of 13.5% in 2018 and is projected to witness moderate growth over the coming years. The growth is owing to the lightweight and high strength properties of aluminum along with growing demand for automotive and electric vehicles. In automobiles, aluminum extruded products are used in bumper systems, door beams, and structural members of the car body.

Aluminum extrusion plays a major role in aerospace industry owing to its properties such as good weldability, corrosion resistance, machinability, and electrical conductivity. The extrusion is used in galleys & trolleys, instruments, seats, and baggage compartments. According to the International Air Transport Association, the aircraft passenger number is expected to reach 8.2 billion by 2037, thus creating a demand for aircraft in the coming years. The growing demand for aircraft along with electric & motor vehicles is anticipated to augment the market growth over the coming years.

Global aluminum extrusion market

Electrical & energy segment is largely driven by the growing demand for renewable energy sources such as solar energy and wind energy. Aluminum extrusion is used in producing supports & frames for solar panels. Properties of aluminum extrusion, such as corrosion & weather resistance and lightweight, make it suitable for use in assemblies and installation of solar panels.

Consumer goods segment is projected to register a CAGR of 5.5% in terms of revenue from 2019 to 2025. The growth rate is attributable to increasing demand for aluminum extrusion from consumer electronics.
