Aluminum Industry in the United Kingdom 2015

Aluminum Industry in the United Kingdom 2015

The economic slowdown of 2008-2009 had a major impact on the aluminum industry in the United Kingdom. Two out of the three aluminum smelters in the UK were closed down and now, Rio Tinto Alcan is the only producer of primary aluminum in the country. The sole smelter in the UK is the Lochaber smelter located in Fort William, Scotland and it has a yearly production capacity of 48 thousand tons of aluminum.

The UK aluminum industry has been facing many challenges in recent years, forcing the industry to contract in recent years. The country has also been unable to provide cheap electricity to aluminum manufacturers and this was the primary reason for the closures of the two smelters.

Further decline is expected in the coming years and by the end of 2018 the UK aluminum industry is expected to have revenues of just about USD 88 million. In 2013 as well the industry had a value of USD 88 million and as can be seen from the values, the industry is not going to be making much progress in the coming years.
