Aluminium

Keep up with the movements of aluminium as one of the most-watched metals on the market

Aluminium is a core material in the global metals market, from electronics to automobiles. The growing need to transition to a more sustainable future has placed aluminium near the top of the metals market food chain because of its strength, recyclability and lighter weight.

Aluminium prices fluctuate with volatile market conditions. However, the continued shift toward light weighting in electric vehicles and China’s reopening after three years of strict Covid-19 restrictions are helping to increase demand for this sought-after material.

Whether in packaging, construction or electrical equipment, aluminium is being used more and more because of its strength, resistance to corrosion, recyclability and ability to act as a conductor. We provide prices, news and analysis of aluminium so you can keep up to date with the market’s movements.
