Aluminum Flat-Rolled Products Market Share is projected to be worth USD 68,972.00 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 7.26% during the forecast period (2021 - 2030).

The prominent factor driving the growth of the global market is the growing demand for aluminum foils and aluminum cans in the packaging industry. More than 7 billion aluminum foil containers are produced annually, and this number is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years. Aluminum foil can be merged with flexible films to create lightweight packages and is used in the packaging of tuna, pet food, coffee, and soups. Aluminum packaging is lightweight, flexible, and easily recyclable as well as hygienic and keeps the food fresh for a long time. Moreover, medicinal packaging is another important application segment for aluminum foils, wherein it is used for packaging all types of medications such as capsules, creams, pills, lotions, liquid and powder medications. Aluminum foil offers complete protection against light, moisture, oxygen, and other gases as well as against microorganisms and bacteria. The increasing demand for aluminum foils in medical packaging coupled with the healthy growth of the medical industry is likely to favor the market growth.

The automotive and aerospace industries are the other major consumers of aluminum flat-rolled products. Aluminum flat-rolled products are used in the automotive industry as a substitute for steel, plastics, and other materials as they are cost-effective, lightweight, and durable; they help to reduce the overall weight of vehicles and increase fuel efficiency. Increasing adoption of aluminum in automobile manufacturing by the leading automobile manufacturers is likely to drive the demand for rolled products in the near future. Furthermore, the expanding construction sector in the emerging economies of Asia-Pacific and the Middle East Africa is expected to boost demand for the rolled aluminum products in the construction of commercial building components, e.g., windows and doors, skylights, photovoltaic panel framing, sunrooms, demountable interior walls, light-deflecting shelves, and rain screens, among others.

However, the environmental hazards associated with the mining of bauxite, which is the raw material for aluminum production, is expected to hamper the growth of the global market to an extent during the forecast period. In addition, the fluctuations in the prices of aluminum metal is likely to pose a challenge for the manufacturers to maintain their profit margins.
