The global aluminum foil market closely follows the trend set by the aluminum production and consumption sectors, and a similar stance was witnessed in the first quarter, too. The global traders noted that the global aluminum market in the first quarter of 2024 might resemble 2023, with stagnant prices attributed to China's economic slowdown in the initial half, particularly the construction.

Despite China's efforts to stabilize its property market, a significant recovery was not imminent, although increased demand was noted in solar, electric vehicles (EVs), and transmission infrastructure sectors. Stricter green regulations, particularly in China, may permanently close fossil fuel-operated smelters, tightening the global supply of aluminum foil.

The slowed-down momentum was not only limited to China but was also seen in the rest of the Asia countries. In India, the aluminum foil industry was able to sustain a constant price quotation of approximately 3101 USD/MT, showing resilience to the depreciating global dynamics. The Western nations continued to avoid Russian aluminum, constituting 6% of global production, further limiting the availability of raw materials in the region.

In China, the average price of aluminum commodities rose towards the end phase of the first quarter. This uptick was influenced primarily by the expectations of a Federal Reserve interest rate cut in June, boosting the non-ferrous sector, including aluminum, due to its strong financial attributes. Despite high domestic aluminum supply, downstream production activities resumed after the holiday season, and positive consumer sentiment buoyed demand.

Notably, aluminum foil, along with other sectors like aluminum profiles and plates, witnessed a gradual recovery in production capacity and operating rates. As the traditional peak consumption season approaches, downstream demand for aluminum foil and other aluminum products is expected to improve further, leading to anticipated fluctuations in aluminum prices with short-term strength.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the price of Aluminum Foil is expected to surge in the first month of the next quarter due to the adoption of anti-dumping duties by China and the limited trade of Russian aluminum.

About Aluminum Foil

Aluminum foil, primarily obtained from the multistep refining of bauxite, is employed extensively in the manufacturing, automotive, and construction sectors. Its lightweight composition, coupled with remarkable durability, makes it an optimal choice for diverse packaging needs, offering protection against moisture, oxygen, and light. Aluminum foil possesses resistance to corrosion and chemical reactions and thus can be sustained under challenging environments. Additionally, its recyclability makes it a popular eco-friendly choice.

Aluminum Foil Production Process

  • Aluminum Foil Production from Bauxite

In the first step, the Bayer process refines bauxite into aluminum oxide through digestion, clarification, precipitation, and calcination. Smelting then extracts pure aluminum from the alumina produced. The alumina is then dissolved in a smelting cell filled with cryolite, where an electric current decomposes it into pure molten aluminum. Further processing includes casting, annealing, and rolling to produce aluminum foil. Rolling reduces the foil's thickness, with lubricants aiding the process. Towards the end of the process, trimming and slitting form the final foil sheets. Foil can undergo additional finishing processes such as coating, lamination, printing, and embossing before packaging.
