Rusal) remained in business until December, as consumers continued to scramble for aluminum on the market.

Alcoa had also raised its forecast for a global alumina shortage for the whole year.
Alcoa will consider its capital allocation plan for 2019 in January, and Harvey told analysts on a conference call that consumers are likely to use more scrap aluminum to avoid importing products subject to tariffs, hurting demand for raw aluminum.
