According to SMM, the export of aluminum cable enterprises has been affected to a certain extent in the context of this year's epidemic. Some enterprises said that export orders in Southeast Asia, such as India, have decreased, but because the epicenter of the foreign epidemic is in Europe and the Americas, the main export areas of aluminum cables, Central Europe, Southeast Asia, and Africa, are relatively limited, and the exporting countries are relatively scattered. The degree of frustration is not as obvious as that of products with relatively high exports such as aluminum strip and aluminum foil. (SMM Xu Man 021-51595898)
