Aluminium End User - Electrical
Aluminium has been used as a conductor material in electrical applications since long. Yet, its use never really took off on a commercial scale until 1960s and 1970s when sudden price rise of copper forced people to replace it with aluminium on an experimental basis.
Today, aluminium and aluminium alloys are used in a large number of electrical applications. It has replaced copper in high-voltage transmission, and stands as the most economical way of transmitting electric power all over the world.
Other major areas of application include electrolytic capacitators, heating elements, and heatsinks in industrial segment, and electric light bulbs, television antennae, and satellite dishes in the domestic segment.
Aluminium scores over copper for being almost three times lighter. Plus, the metal is highly ductile, non-magnetic, and cheaper. Aluminium alloys too have fairly high structural strength and acceptable levels of conductivity.
Electrical sector is the largest consumer of aluminium semis. With developing nations announcing plans to overhaul their infrastructure new impetus for growth can be expected for this segment. The demand for aluminium wire rods and extrusions will also rise riding the infrastructure boom in the next one decade.
