On aluminum, the report on the Evaluation of Aluminum used in China's Automobile Industry (2016-2030) was released recently. The report presents the results of a comprehensive assessment of the amount of aluminum used in China's automotive industry, including passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles (buses and trucks), special vehicles, two-wheeled vehicles and tricycles. The report argues that between now and 2030, China's auto industry is likely to undergo a huge shift from fuel-fueled vehicles to new energy vehicles. Aluminum, the first material for Chinese carmakers to reduce vehicle weight, has made good use of the shift. While the outlook for the number of fuel vehicles remains unchanged, weight loss measures are likely to boost consumption by increasing the unit use of aluminium in vehicle manufacturing.
