ALUMINIUM, the world’s leading trade fair of the aluminum industry, will expand its global activities to include a North American presence in response to the booming aluminum market in the U.S. ALUMINUM USA will be held November 11-12, 2015 at the Cobo Center in Detroit, MI.
The U.S. market is the aluminum industry’s third-largest global market with total industry sales of $35 billion. It has grown by 4.7% annually since 2009, resulting in an overall growth of 30% over the last five years (source: IBISWorld Industry Report, July 2014). Key growth drivers include the automotive and aerospace sectors. In order to meet the rapidly growing demand in both areas, nearly all aluminum manufacturers are currently expanding their production capacities through upgrades or acquisitions. In the automotive sector alone, the demand for aluminum in the U.S. increased by 22.1% last year.
“The aluminum industry in the United States is all set for growth,” said Michael Köhler, event director of Reed Exhibitions Deutschland GmbH and brand manager of ALUMINIUM global. “All indicators – key production figures, processing quantities and planned capacity increases – make it clear that demand will continue to grow rapidly in future.” For companies with international operations, ALUMINUM USA will provide a point of entry to one of the aluminum industry’s most dynamic markets.
Reed Exhibitions is partnering with the Aluminum Association and expects about 80 exhibitors and up to 2,000 trade visitors at ALUMINUM USA, which will take place every other year.
