Fastest Growing Segment
India Aluminum Market is anticipated to register a high
CAGR during the forecast period.
Chemical element aluminum has the atomic
number 13 and the symbol Al. Aluminum has a density that is around one-third
that of steel, which is lower than that of most common metals. It has a strong
affinity for oxygen and when exposed to air, an oxide layer develops to protect
the surface. Aluminum has a color that is similar to silver and has a high
light-reflecting capacity. It is ductile, soft, and non-magnetic. Aluminum is
the tenth most prevalent element in the universe and has just one stable
isotope, 27Al, which is also quite abundant. In radio dating, 26 Al's
radioactivity is used.
A silver-white, lightweight metallic
element, aluminum accounts for 7% of the earth's crust. It is just one-third
the weight of steel. Due to its advantageous qualities and traits, such as its
malleability, ductility, ease of casting, good corrosion resistance, and
durability, it is the most abundant material. It is mined as bauxite ore and
mostly occurs as alumina when combined with oxygen. With a share of around 5.3%
of the world's output, India is the fourth-largest producer of aluminum. It
benefits from having about 10% of the world's bauxite deposits and a developing
aluminum industry. It is anticipated that domestic demand is expected to
rise by 8–10%.
Government Initiatives in the Infrastructure
and Construction Sector
The demand for infrastructure in India is
tremendous. The government of India has authorized Real Estate Investment
Trusts (REITs) to let foreign investors access the country's real estate sector
in an effort to hasten the development of India's infrastructure. The Indian
market, therefore, offers a USD 19.65 billion opportunity in the upcoming
years. The government aims to modernize the building industry's technologies
through the Global Housing Technologies Challenge.
The government has set aside USD 29.2
billion for the Smart-Communities program, which seeks to build sustainable
communities of the highest caliber possible. With USD 16.5 billion in

program, which encourages the expansion of historic cities, has received USD
16.5 million from the national government. AMRUT and Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana
(PMAY), a national housing program, among other government programs, are

building industries. Additionally, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman

government expects to support with USD 2831.48 million in 2023–2024 is the
National Capital Region Transport Corporation, which is implementing the
Delhi–Meerut rapid transit project. This should have a number of positive
effects on the Indian aluminum market, and the CAGR should continue to be high.
