Aluminium is characterized with properties such as high conductivity, ductility, and malleability. These properties have highly promoted the use of metal in a number of end use industries.
Aluminium is extensively used in the construction industry owing to its light weight and corrosion resistance. In addition to this, it is also used in electrical transmission lines as it acts as a good electrical conductor. This has resulted in an increased production of metal, thereby propelling the aluminium market.
In U.S. aluminium cans market is current witnessing steady growth. Aluminium cans are containers used to store and preserve the quality and favour of the contents.
The U.S. aluminium cans market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for the packaging of processed and ready-to-eat food products, aerated drinks, fruit juices and energy drinks. On account of these factors, the market is expected to continue its steady growth during the forecast period (2021-2026).
According to US Geological Survey, US domestic primary aluminium production came in at 91000 tonnes in December 2019. The average daily production was 2950 tonnes, essentially unchanged from that in November 2019, 3% less than compared to December 2018. Total primary aluminium production was 1.09 million tonnes in 2019, 23% more than in 2018.
Aluminium’s durability, reflectivity, strength and corrosion resistance are among the reasons it petitions to end users in manufacturing, aerospace, building and construction, electronics and more industries.

Due to its qualities such as corrosion resistance, high strength, flexibility, lightweight, good thermal & electrical conductivity, and barrier properties are playing a dominant role in the aluminium markets demand from the aerospace sector.
The developments and requirements in automotive components, that are made from aluminium, are cost-effective models enhancing its venture into this industry.
The surge in automotive demand and production levels and sales in U.S. propel the advance of aluminium market value during the period 2023-2030.
Apart from these, aluminium is most anticipated material from other industries like Food and packaging, Domestic appliances, roofing sheets, smartphones, composite manufacturing, etc., these applications definitely increase the aluminium market value during the specified forecast period.
Aluminium is the most recyclable of all materials. Discarded aluminium is more valuable than any other item in recycling bin. Aluminium is recycled through variety of programs. Items like beverage cans, aluminium foil, aluminium baking trays and pie pans are recycled.
The aluminium industry actively supporting recycling partnership. More than 90% of the aluminium in building and automotive parts are recycled at the end of the use. The economics of aluminium also contributes to its position as one of the most recycled metals in U.S. Unlike other materials, aluminium more than pays for its own recycling in consumer and industrial waste stream.
The US and the UK reached a deal to eliminate tariffs on steel and aluminium imports. It reopens the British market to beloved American products by enabling a flow of duty-free steel and aluminium from the UK, further easing the imbalance between supply and demand for these items in the United States, and by removing the UK’s retaliatory tariffs. Steel and aluminium industries will prosper from it.
Manna Capital Partners, a minority-owned business enterprise and investment firm, and Ball Corporation, a leading global provider of infinitely recyclable aluminium beverage packaging, have announced a partnership in which Manna will build and operate a cutting-edge aluminium can sheet rolling mill and recycling centre in Los Lunas, New Mexico.
Ball will sign a long-term supply arrangement and will also invest in the mill as a minority shareholder. The announcement underscores both firms’ commitment to building a more robust and sustainable domestic supply chain for the increasing beverage packaging market by producing more environmentally friendly aluminium in the United States.
Ball Corporation is excited to work with Manna and its management team to help build a genuinely circular economy for aluminium can sheet, create skilled jobs in the region, and help customers in meeting their sustainability goals.
The Centre for Biomedical Technologies at Queensland University of Technology (CBT-QUT) has positively wet-etched a nanostructure with a breadth of 21-25 nm onto an Aluminum 6063 alloy plane.
This verified the idleness of COVID-19 in six hours on tough antiviral nanostructured surfaces. Cicada’s Antimicrobial Nanotechnology Solution for COVID-Free Surfaces has given outstanding promise in sustaining public places safe from COVID-19 and is an excellent foundation for research should another pandemic happen in the future.
U.S. primary Aluminum producers continue to experience major competitiveness challenges, largely due to electric power costs that are higher than those of leading foreign rivals, particularly Canada and most of the GCC countries.
Meanwhile, the U.S. secondary unwrought segment has the advantage of access to the most abundant supplies of domestically generated Aluminum scrap in the world. U.S. wrought firms are reportedly technologically advanced and work closely with their customers to create innovative product and alloy solutions to meet their end-use requirements.
Recently, Alcoa invented the zero-carbon emission technology that ELYSIS, a joint venture company co-founded by Alcoa, is working to ramp up to a commercial scale.
The process emits pure oxygen as by-product and eliminates all greenhouse gas emissions. This process is used in production of low-carbon aluminium wheels.
