Aluminum is considered to be the primary raw material for a wide range of industries, especially for automotive, aerospace, and defense sectors. During World Wars I and II, about 90% of USA aluminum production went into defense and military uses. The metal remains essential to several components of modern warfare and owing to this, there is a high demand for alumina for the production of aluminum.
The ongoing Russia-Ukraine war would create a new growth opportunity for key players for the manufacturing of military and defense weapons as the USA is a leading supplier of weapons to Ukraine. There will hence be huge demand for aluminum production across the country. Canada’s aluminum production is mainly exported to the USA and it is projected to further create a lucrative opportunity for alumina production in the United States and Canada during the assessment period.
