DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/7c28wv/aluminum_industry) has announced the addition of the "Aluminum Industry in Brazil 2015" report to their offering.
Rising energy costs and plunging aluminum production has led to a severe contraction in the Brazilian aluminum industry in recent years. In both volume and value terms, Brazilian smelters are cutting production and this is expected to continue till 2018. Brazil was once the sixth largest producer in the upstream segment in the world and a major player with integrated chain that ranged from bauxite mining to primary aluminum production to smelting.
Aluminum demand has seen a strong rise in recent years and it is likely to remain high in the coming years aided by a growing transportation and construction industry. It is expected that Brazilian aluminum consumption will continue to rise at nearly twice the rate of GDP and reach between 2.5-2.7 million tons by the year 2020.
