SHANGHAI, May 29 (SMM) – Operating rates in aluminium plate/sheet, strip and extrusion sectors declined due to poor demand. Extrusion demand from construction and PV sectors weakened, but demand for PV extrusion frames is expected to grow significantly in the second half of the year. Operating rates in aluminium alloy, wire & cable and foil sectors were stable, but will hardly increase in the future as new orders have shown a downward trend.
