Research and Markets: Global and Chinese Aluminum Alloy Automotive Sheet Industry Report, 2012-2015

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wv2pbw/global_and) has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese Aluminum Alloy Automotive Sheet Industry Report, 2012-2015" report to their offering.

Following the increasing requirements of all countries on vehicle energy saving and environment-friendly performance, a wave of vehicle lightweight has been staged around the globe. Aluminum alloy, with its low density, corrosion resistance, high strength and other advantages, has become the first choice to replace traditional iron and steel materials. At present, among numerous automotive aluminum alloy products, aluminum alloy automotive sheet has emerged as an investment hotspot for global aluminum processing enterprises because of its huge growth potentials. With an enormous automobile market, China has become a hot investment area.

Aluminum alloy automotive sheet industry started late in China, plus being impeded by high-tech and capital barriers, the domestic capacity grows slowly. Over the same period, with the accelerated upgrading of automotive product structure as well as the rising proportion of medium- and high-end cars, the demand for aluminum alloy automotive sheets has embraced a significant increase and the market supply tends to be increasingly tight.

Currently, aluminum alloy automotive sheet products used in China's automotive industry chiefly rely on imports; sheet materials used in Japanese cars are primarily imported from Japan; while for American and German cars, European and American companies like ALCOA, Norsk Hydro and Novelis act as the suppliers. Chinese aluminum alloy automotive sheet manufacturers, due to small yield, unstable quality, etc., are incapable of providing large-scale joint ventures with plate materials, but they serve local carmakers.
