A Five Year Outlook for China's Aluminium Industry
This study from Metal Bulletin Research (MBR), A Five Year Outlook for China's Aluminium Industry
, seeks to examine the primary aluminium industry from a first principles perspective, looking at both demand and supply to assess the influences on each, and the likely outcomes for both.
China's aluminium industry has grown at incredible rates the last ten years. But now many experts are predicting that China will gradually become a net importer of the metal. Some commentators have predicted shortages as high as 5 million tonnes by 2015.
MBR tests these predictions. In this ground-breaking forecast study, you will learn what is really going on inside the industry, including many items of information never made public before. Key questions addressed in this study include:
Why do different agencies in China report different statistics?
How is the Chinese aluminium industry responding to the challenges of high electricity costs?
Energy intensity restrictions in 2010 they were a brake on production, but what will happen in 2011 and beyond?
