Aluminum Industry in the UAE 2015

In recent years, Gulf countries have started looking to diversify their economies into non-oil sectors and aluminum has found favor in this strategy. The UAE has the advantage of having a well-established aluminum industry already as compared to other Gulf countries. The UAE has also invested in smelters and now is looking to vertically integrate into upstream and downstream in the coming years. In 2014, the Gulf region together producer 4.83 tons of aluminum and this volume is expected to increase to over 5 million tons in 2015.

The Gulf region is expected to account for nearly 10 percent of the global aluminum output in the coming years due to the addition of new smelters and also the expansion of existing ones. In 2014, the UAE produced 203 million tons of aluminum and it is nearing maximum production capacity. The country at the moment has no plans to set up more refineries and according to government sources, the current aluminum production capacity is enough to meet UAE's requirements for the time being.

The UAE has already become the world's fourth largest aluminum producer, with exports being valued over USD 4 billion. The country has invested USD 15 billion between 2005 and 2015 into its aluminum industry and has further plans to invest up to USD 5 billion further.
