The aluminium market - Italy

Available languages


1.1 Definition and scope of study

Aluminum is a silver-colored malleable metal (it is the sixth most ductile metal and the second most malleable metal on earth). Aluminum can be used for a variety of purposes, including building transportation equipment, producing packaging, other types of construction, etc. 

Today, the market for the production of primary aluminum is mainly held by China, which has large reserves of bauxite, the basic mineral to obtain this light metal. There are two main types of aluminum sold in the market:

1.     Die-cast aluminum, used in all major industries

2.     Extruded aluminum, used for fillers, 3D molds, and welding.

Globally, the aluminum market was valued at $147.2 billion in 2018. In the period between 2019 and 2026, the value of this market is projected to reach $189.8 billion, growing at a CAGR of 3.2%.

In Italy, the aluminum market is also said to be growing and is so profitable that it ranks second in Europe, in terms of revenue, right after Germany.  

It is estimated that in Italy, 2 million tons of aluminum were produced in 2019 and that the per capita consumption was 34 kg, which is one of the highest values in the world. However, one issue affecting Italy at this time is the lack of raw materials and therefore the shortage of aluminum compared to the demand.  

One of the largest aluminum producers in Italy is Profall, which supplies extruded aluminum to every industrial sector.  

The recent pandemic has also had an important effect on this market especially given the role that China plays. Beijing is in fact the world's largest producer of aluminum and the lockdown within the city has generated disruption to this sector worldwide.  

Fortunately, after a difficult year, the raw materials market and in particular the aluminum market are experiencing an important period of recovery, especially thanks to the industrial recovery at global level.
