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.

We provide prices, news and analysis of aluminium so you can keep up to date with the market’s movements.
