Automotive Aluminum Market in the APAC Region 2015-2019

About Automotive Aluminum

Aluminum and its alloys have unique properties such as lightweight, high tensile strength, and high corrosion resistance, making it a good replacement for steel that has conventionally been used to make a vehicle's body and its components. It offers a fast, cost-effective, and an environmentally friendly way to boost fuel economy, reduce emissions, and increase performance, enhancing or maintaining durability and safety. A vehicle with components made of aluminum is about 24 percent lighter than that with components made of steel.
