Aluminium may be a versatile material integral to modern life. The metal is found in everything from soda cans to cell phones to window frames to airplanes. The aluminium industry are often categorized into two principal segments. The key segment is that the production of primary aluminium by integrated producers engaged within the entire value chain from the mining of bauxite in an alumina refinery, and conversion of alumina into primary aluminium metal in an aluminium smelter. Primary aluminium is formed commercially available within the variety of ingots, billets, wire rods or properzi rods also called conductor redraw rods.
The second principal segment consists of secondary/downstream producers who are engaged in the manufacture of value-added semi-fabricated aluminium products such as rolled products, extrusions and foils. India is considered to be the fifth largest producer of aluminium in the world with a tremendous bauxite reserve of about 3 billion tonnes. While the major consumption of aluminium in India is done by the electrical (31%) and B&C sectors (13%), the future growth is envisaged to happen in the solar power and industrial sector. The global aluminum extrusion market reached a volume of 20.3 Million Metric Tons in 2019. The global aluminum extrusion market size is anticipated to reach USD 113.5 billion by 2025, progressing at a CAGR of 5.3% over the forecast period.
Aluminum extrusion is that the process of melting and reworking an aluminum alloy bar into a selected shape by pushing it through a cross-sectional die. Extruded aluminum features a high electrical and thermal conductivity, ductility and recyclability and may be customized consistent with the wants of the buyer. The extruded parts even have a smooth and fine surface finish and may be polished, buffed, anodized, painted or powder-coated to reinforce the aesthetic value and appeal of the merchandise. Aluminum extrudes are cost-efficient, lightweight and corrosion-resistant, require low maintenance and have paramagnetic properties that make them a highly preferred alternative to standard aluminum products. They find extensive application across various industries such as building and construction, transportation, machinery and equipment, durables, electrical, etc. Entrepreneurs who invest in this project will be successful.
