According to DuckerFrontier, aluminum demand from the global automotive industry should remain strong as the industry adapts to higher emissions standards, electrification and fuel efficiency.

The Washington, D.C.-based consulting firm said that the net aluminum use per vehicle in North America had grown from 84 pounds in 1984 to a projected 466 pounds in 2020. That amount is expected to be 520-565 pounds by 2025.
