China Aluminum Stocks to Exceed 1.8 Million Tonnes in Q1 2018, SMM Predicts

India’s primary aluminum output rose 19.1% year-on-year to 2.44 million tonnes in the fiscal year of 2015-2016, and consumption rose 25.4% year-on-year to 1.98 million tonnes, while exports increased over 15% year-on-year.
