What are the Key Trends in the Global High Purity Aluminium Market?

“High Purity Aluminium to Meet Smart Device Diverse Requirements”

With changing lifestyles and busy schedules, smart devices are becoming an integral part of today’s day-to-day life. These devices are easy to control with simple commands and can be applied in our homes to make our life easy. Smart devices are being used in various aspects of our life, ranging from security (smart cameras, sensors, etc., which make our life secure), to accessibility (computers, TV, and others, which can be operated with a single touch on a screen).

These devices are designed for particular functions and are used in a myriad of applications covering automobiles, cameras, medical devices, household appliances, industrial machines, vending machines, toys, airplanes, cellular phones, and PDA (personal digital assistants).

The ripening of the Internet of Things (IoT) is revising the dynamics of daily life and has opened up an incredible avenue for further penetration of the robotics sector. As a result, the usage of semiconductors, LEDs, phototransistors, PCBs, and many more is increasing at a rapid rate. This, in turn, is driving the use of high purity aluminium in numerous applications.

“Increasing Defense Expenditure to Spur High Purity Aluminium Consumption”

High purity aluminium is needed in many national security applications, mostly in fighter jets. It is extensively used in the manufacturing of F-35, F-18, C-17, and other next-generation military craft. Furthermore, it is also used in the manufacturing of ammunition components, parts of missiles & missile batteries, tanks, and components for satellites.

The global defense industry has been growing at a steady pace.

  • According to the data source Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), total military spending increased to US$ 2.11 trillion in 2021.

The United States, China, India, United Kingdom, and Russia are major economies investing in defense and collectively account for 62% of worldwide military expenditure.

Armed forces across the world are leveraging the power of digitalization and developing network-centric defense ecosystems to strengthen action readiness and modernize battlefield operations. Countries such as the U.S. and U.K. are investing billions of dollars in initiatives such as autonomous technologies, war clouds, and defense ICT modernization.

All these activities are increasing high purity aluminium usage in the defense sector and will market growth for years to come.

“Red Mud - A Major Threat to Mankind”

High purity aluminium is commercially produced using the Bayer process. However, this process is also accompanied by the formation of industrial waste, which is known as bauxite residue (red mud). For every ton of aluminum produced, approximately 1.4 - 1.5 tons of red mud are also produced.

Red mud is considered hazardous to the environment due to its huge volume, alkalinity, and storage complication. Presently, there are more than 200 aluminum smelters across the world producing aluminum from bauxite.

As the global demand for aluminum increases, the production of red mud is also swelling. Though red mud is bifurcated as a less or non-hazardous residue for storage in most countries, the capital requirement for its storage and subsequent disposal is heavy for companies.

“High Operational Cost - Barrier to Market Growth”

High purity aluminium manufacturing requires the usage of sophisticated equipment and devices. As a result, manufacturing such compounds is usually accompanied by high operational costs. Roughly, a CAPEX of US$ 297.6 million and an OPEX of US$ 44.6 million are needed for setting up a standard plant with an annual capacity of 4,000 tons.

Moreover, as a result of weak economic growth caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and inflation, industrial production remained well below market expectations. As sales were lower than expected, high purity aluminium manufacturers had to bear extra costs for inventory management.
