Do you have an aluminum water bottle close at hand? How about your window screens or screen doors? Chances are good that you see aluminum extruded products so often that you don't even notice. Their strength, safety and rust resistance make them a great choice for many uses. Construction, energy, machinery and household goods all depend on these items. Knowing aluminum extruded products manufacturers can help you make valuable connections to them and to all sorts of other manufacturers where these products are used.

Know Your Market

Like most manufacturers, the aluminum extruded products industry faced several COVID-19-related disruptions. Supply chain and workforce shortages affected the industry.

However, unlike some other manufacturing industries, this sector adapted to defeat market conditions. The increased use of robotics enabled more workers to return to the shop floor.

The industry has a mixed market. Many suppliers and manufacturers across the country rely on aluminum extruded products. Their weight-to-strength ratio provides a strong base on which to build.

Before the pandemic, tariffs helped the US industry thrive. The 2018 10% tariff on China’s aluminum helped the stagnating US industry bounce back. China's government-sponsored production had flooded the market. Cheap and readily available products had damaged the US industry. In this case, the tariffs evened the playing field, allowing US industries to succeed and build enough capital to springboard into high-level automation during the pandemic.

Industry Statistics

According to data collected by MNI, there are 208 manufacturers of aluminum extruded products in the US. They employ 25,571 people. This figure is 0.24% higher than last year, showing that the industry overcame its challenges.

Twenty-two percent of US aluminum extruded products manufacturers import their raw materials. This figure is twice the number of US manufacturers as a whole.

Domestic sales figures are roughly equal (66% of US aluminum extruded products manufacturers sell within the nation versus 70% of manufacturers as a whole).

Regionally, US aluminum extruded products companies are located:

• 38% in the Midwest.
• 36% in the South.
• 15% in the West.
• 11% in the Northeast.
