The market is projected to experience growth at a CAGR of 6.8% from 2019 to 2026.
Aluminum is a non-magnetic and ductile metal with a dull luster due to thin aluminum oxide coating. Low metal density, corrosion resistance, and thermal conductivity are some properties, which makes it ideal for various industrial applications. Growth in electrical industry is the major factor that drives the growth of the aluminum market across Saudi Arabia. In addition, technological advancements and increase in aluminum demand from various end-user industries such as foil & packaging supplement the Saudi Arabia aluminum market growth. An overall increase in production capacity by key leaders and high degree of vertical integration are observed in the industry.
The Saudi Arabia aluminum market is segmented into type, processing method, series, and end use industry. On the basis of type, the aluminum market is segmented into primary and secondary/scrap. Secondary aluminum/scrap is further sub segmented into tense/trump, taste, taint/tabor, tale, tata/toto, taldack, troma, and others. Primary aluminum holds the largest market share in terms of revenue, owing to its wide use in electrical applications and foil and packaging. In addition, it can be alloyed with other elements to provide higher strength. The processing method segment is divided into casting, extrusion, forging, pigments & powder, rods & bar, and flat rolled. The extrusion segment holds the largest share, in terms of revenue, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.4%. Aluminum extrusions offer lightweight and durability to patio furniture, sports equipment, and others. By series, it is categorized into series 1, series 2, series 3, series 4, series 5, series 6, series 7, series 8, and series 9. Series 1 segment holds the largest share, in terms of revenue, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.4%. By end user industry, it is classified into building & construction, transportation, electrical, industrial, consumer durable, foil & packaging, and others. The electrical segment accounted for more than one-fourth of the market share, in terms of revenue, in 2018. Aluminum products are extensively used in the electrical industry due to their performance, weight to strength ratio, thermal conductivity, corrosion resistance, safety, and environment benefits.
