How will Demand Growth of Semiconductors Impact High Purity Aluminium?

According to the Semiconductor Industry Association, “semiconductor sales in FY2020 increased by nearly 5.1% as compared to FY2019, and the market is projected to grow at a stronger rate in FY2021.

Since the beginning of Q2 of FY2020, demand growth of semiconductors has been observed at its highest point in Q4 of FY2020.

Among the end-use industries considered for high purity aluminium, semiconductors have higher demand ratio and also a governing growth rate. Therefore, over the long-term forecast period, semiconductors are anticipated to be the proverbial key to the expansion of the high purity aluminium market size.

Is there Potential for High Purity Aluminium in the Aerospace and Defense Industry?

Growing defense investments and technological enhancements in aerospace & defense research will bolster high purity aluminium demand over the short-term and medium-term forecast period.

Technological race to strengthen defense equipment will cascade the effect, demanding more high purity materials, including aluminium.

The aerospace industry and aluminium are strongly connected, owing to the utilization of aluminium for the construction of the body of aircraft.

But in the perspective of high purity aluminium, it is used to manufacture circuit boards, chip sets, and storage systems to enhance the overall conductivity of the designed craft. This is to enhance the overall experience of the cockpit and the durability of the machine.

All in all, growing aerospace & defense industry is set to bolster demand for high purity aluminium. Growth of high purity aluminium is anticipated to strengthen with rising investments in both these sectors.

What are the Key Barriers for High Purity Aluminium Manufacturers?

A key barrier for high purity aluminium market growth is its long-run risk associated with the concentration of a majority of demand from the semiconductor industry.

High purity aluminium demand bubble has been growing at a rapid rate for semiconductors, which puts it at a risk of strong explosion, affecting investor confidence in the market.

Also, high purity aluminium has a number of substitutes in the market, ranging from copper, brass and silver. Copper has strongly penetrated the semiconductors industry, and has lesser chance of going obsolete over the long-term forecast period.

As such, growth of such substitutes may hinder the penetration of high purity aluminium in the market to some extent.

Supply-side barriers include higher cost of production and lower margins for manufacturers, with lower production rates for players who have no linearly integration of aluminium supply. Therefore, players with strong cash flow and who are linearly integrated could generate higher dollar opportunity over the next ten years.
