Aluminium demand worldwide
The worldwide demand for aluminium rose to 69.3 million tonnes in 2018. That was an increase of 3 per cent on the previous year. The rise was attributable mainly to increased growth in Asia (+8 per cent). In Africa and the Oceania demand was more or less at the previous year’s level. The American continent showed a decline of about 13 %. Over 30 per cent of aluminium used now comes from recycled aluminium products.
