Aluminum is an important part of China’s nonferrous metals industry. After years of rapid development, China has become the world’s largest aluminum producer and consumer countries, markedly enhanced overall strength. 2014, China’s aluminum sheet production reached 48.45 million tons, an increase of 18.6%, accounting for more than 50% of the world production of aluminum sheet, from January to August, aluminum production 33.52 million tons, an increase of 9.1%; 1 to July aluminum industry realized profits of 29.2 billion yuan, 39 percent of total industry (excluding gold (1123.10, -3.70, -0.33%)) of the total profit. In terms of equipment, our large extrusions, hot rolling, finishing and other equipment has reached world advanced level. Energy saving melting and casting equipment to get promotion.
In the restructuring, relying on the direct use of aluminum electrolytic aluminum production base liquid short process aluminum production capacity rising, cans, packaging materials, high-grade heat sink material, high-end CTP version of the base material has been fully meet domestic and export demand, large transportation transportation of aluminum to Chinese high-speed rail to become China’s high-end manufacturing business card made an important contribution, aerospace, automotive aluminum has made positive progress with the development.
But we should also clearly see that the numerical simulation of inadequate investment in research and development of aluminum alloy components and process simulation, a large level of intelligent control gap with foreign advanced level, aviation aluminum, aluminum plate and other high-end passenger car product development ability weak , product quality is unstable, the production cost is high.
Some companies can afford first-class equipment, but do not produce first-class products and services. Product homogeneity serious, intense market competition, international market suffered more than the country’s “double reverse” investigation and sanctions.
Ministry of Industry and Raw Materials Division as non-ferrous metals industry management department, has always attached great importance to the development of the aluminum industry, through strong industrial base, technological innovation, funds and other special materials for high-performance aluminum deep processing projects to give key support, while actively promoting the Aluminum Association in conjunction with electric power , construction, transportation and other areas of consumption.
1 to improve industry management policy
2 continue to support the development of high-end aluminum
3 new applications to expand the aluminum timber
4 promote two of the depth of integration
