Aluminium structure exports by Turkey decline 7% YoY as domestic demand surges higher

AL Circle

Aluminium manufacturing market in Turkey is growing at a moderately steady pace. A recent market research report by Technavio suggests the market will grow at a CAGR of about 4 per cent until 2020. The demand for aluminium in the domestic building and construction sector is seen as a major growth driver for this market. Earlier, the market was focusing mainly on the exports of downstream aluminium products, since domestic demand was low. Aluminium extrusion and flat-rolled aluminium product manufacturers would produce over 900,000 tonnes of products in a year to supply to the global companies operating in construction, automotive, and packaging sectors. However, with demand rising in the domestic market, the export volumes of these products have come down marking a year-over-year decline of 7 per cent (approximately) over the last three years.
