The demand for aluminium in China in 2016 will rise by 7% to 31 mln tons. the most significant contribution to the demand growth in 2016 will be made by the transportation sector – a half of the entire demand or 1.5 mln tons; as well as the construction sector, electric goods of long-term use and packing.

It is forecast that aluminium production in China will be growing at slow rates for the past 5 years – the growth will make up 4.8% in 2016 against the average rate of 12% for the past 5 years and 9.6% in 2015.
