From aluminium producer to consumer: Developing the Middle Eastern downstream sector
The shift to add value downstream to the Middle Eastern aluminium industry is gathering pace with a range of investments in the pipeline. However, the margin between success and failure downstream is small. Success factors in aluminium semis are significantly different to those in primary aluminium. We assess the underlying structure of regional demand, the key players and the opportunities and risks associated with a strategy of building a significant local downstream capability in the region.
