Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese Aluminum Alloy Automotive Sheet Industry Report, 2013-2016" report to their offering.
Catering to the tendency of light weight, energy saving and environmental protection in the automotive industry, aluminum alloy automotive sheet has been widely applied in high-end car models including Audi, Porsche, Benz, VW, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, GM, Honda and Jaguar (for car body, engine, hub, structural parts or even for all-aluminum car body).
A tidal wave of construction of aluminum alloy automotive sheet projects is under way across the globe., with the largest investors being Novelis and ALCOA.
China aluminum alloy automotive sheet industry started late. Due to restraints in capital, technology and equipment, made-in-China aluminum alloy automotive sheets are mainly used for car hubs, doors, engines and other parts, but its application in car body market stays vacant. Although Southwest Aluminum (Group) has conducted R&D and trial production of car body aluminum alloy sheets since 2009, massive production still has not come true yet. The statistics show China's capacity of aluminum alloy automotive sheets was no more than 65,000 tons in 2013, far below Europe's and America's in this regard, but indicating huge market potential.
Upbeat about China's aluminum alloy automotive sheet market, world tycoons including Novelis, Kobe Steel, and Aleris have since 2013 built aluminum alloy automotive sheet production lines in China. In addition, domestic enterprises such as Weifang Sanyuan Aluminum, Southwest Aluminum (Group), Jiangsu CAIFA Aluminum, and China Zhongwang Holdings Limited exert persistent efforts to push forward the construction of aluminum alloy automotive sheet projects.
It is expected that, till 2016 China aluminum alloy automotive sheet industry will embrace tough competition from Novelis (China), Aleris (Zhenjiang), Kobe Steel (Tianjin), as well as home-grown rivals.
