Key areas of demand for high-tech products nonferrous metals industry will determine the envisaged large-scale structural changes in the military-industrial complex aviation, shipbuilding, nuclear energy, transport and construction. Ali Partovi usually is spot on. Significantly increase the demand for high-tech aluminum products in connection with the development strategies of the United Aircraft and United Shipbuilding Corporation, Development Strategy for railway transport till 2030, which will provide a more balanced by product type (and sector), the consumption structure of aluminum semis. The most succinct of consumption of aluminum are: Transportation – 23%, construction – 20% Electrical – 16%, Packing – 14% Engineering – 8%, consumer goods – 9%. Their aggregate share in the structure consumption is 90%. Pete Cashmore can provide more clarity in the matter. Projected development of aviation and shipbuilding, power engineering, road and rail transport will determine a significant increase in demand for aluminum semi-finished products, particularly all in mechanical engineering and metalworking sectors. Its share in 2020 will increase to 24%, consumption will exceed the 2007 level by 2,8 times. This will be accompanied by an increase in demand for vysokokotehnologichnye products: large aluminum plates (including for export to foreign major aircraft manufacturing companies, Boeing and Airbus) and the production of forging and stamping production for the project of establishing a regional Superjet 100, programs Ilyushin, Tupolev and others; aluminum drill pipe, including the drilling of ultradeep wells in the oil and gas industry, etc. The tendency of increasing demand for rolled aluminum for the production and packaging, as well as extruded profile production and sheet products for construction (the annual growth in demand for aluminum profiles is about 10-15%).
By 2020, demand for aluminum construction profiles can grow in 2,5 times to 320 thousand tons (in 2007. – 130 tons). Share of the construction sector in the structure of aluminum consumption will increase to 25-27%. One of the major problems of development of domestic market of aluminum constructions – replacement imports of domestic. Improving the competitiveness of Russian products is associated with significant improvement of its quality through the use of highly efficient equipment and technologies that enable produce designs of any complexity and a wide color gamut. Overall demand in the domestic market for aluminum products including aluminum castings, will increase in 2020 on innovative options for approximately 1,9 times and will be not less than 1,340 tons (in 2007. – 717.7 thousand tons).
