The demand for aluminum is growing worldwide

World production of primary aluminum increased by 5.8 percent in 2017, with an increase of 10 percent in China and stable production in North America and Europe. China continues to be the main driver of growth in the aluminum industry, and electric mobility is an important factor.
This growth reflects the fact that the demand that aluminum has increased markedly compared to the previous century, not only in China but throughout the world. This growth will be continuous and stable throughout 2018 and will probably continue increasing in subsequent years.
