Aluminum is one of the most widely used metals and the third most abundant element on the planet Earth. Bauxite is the primary raw material used in the production of aluminum. Aluminum appears silver to white color, which is soft and non-magnetic ductile metal. The distinguished physical properties namely, great corrosion and oxidation resistance, higher electrical and thermal conductivity, low density, and reasonably high strength are attributed to the growing use of the metal in numerous applications such automotive & transportation, building & construction, and electrical and electronics.
The global aluminum market has been projected to register USD 221.13 billion by the end of 2023, by growing at a healthy CAGR of 6.48% during the review period. This is growth is primarily attributed to growing demand for the product from the rapidly growing transportation sector on the backdrop of rising global trend. Surging demand from the major end-use industries such as transportation and construction and steadily reviving housing sectors in developed regions may further propel the growth of the market. Moreover, flourishing automotive industry and continuously increasing demand for aluminum and its alloys from China are the major factors driving the growth of the market during the years to follow.

Regional Analysis
Regionally, the global aluminum market is broadly spanned across five major regions: North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. Among these regions, Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of the market as of 2016. During the years to follow this region is estimated to expand at the highest CAGR of 6.69%, among other regions. This is projected to help this region mark USD 141.95 billion by the end of the forecast period. The primary factors favoring the dominance of Asia Pacific are the swift industrialization, which is steadily heading north along with the increasing demand for aluminum and its alloys from China, India, South Korea, and other emerging economies in this region. Following Asia Pacific, Europe holds the second largest share of the market on account of growing renovation and repair work in the building and construction industry. In 2016, Germany accounted for the major share of 31.84% in this regional market and is likely to retain its dominance over the review period due to greater penetration of lading end-user industries such as construction and automotive.
