Slide of the month (SOTM) December. Aluminium market growth in sub-Saharan Africa
The Aluminium market in sub-Saharan Africa has been experiencing a steady growth in the past decade.
The major contribution to this, is the increased import of hollow profiles of aluminium alloys into sub-Saharan Africa which has grown by 467%, from 23 million tonnes to 107 million tonnes between 2008 and 2017, compared to other profiles.
The non-alloyed profiles which has the lowest contribution seems to be dwindling in import size, as they only increased between 2009 and 2012, after which they began to decline.
