Aluminum alloy automotive sheet is a kind of light-weight auto sheet. Compared to steel auto body, aluminum auto body is around 40% lighter. Thus, it means massive reduction in fuel consumption in response to the call for energy conservation and emission reduction.

Catering to the tendency of light weight, energy saving and environmental protection in the automotive industry, aluminum alloy automotive sheet has been widely applied in high-end car models including Audi, Porsche, Benz, VW, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, GM, Honda and Jaguar (for car body, engine, hub, structural parts or even for all-aluminum car body).

In the meanwhile, a tidal wave of construction of aluminum alloy automotive sheet projects is under way across the globe. And the largest investors go to Novelis and ALCOA.

Novelis: it has established aluminum automotive sheet plants in Nachterstedt, Germany and Switzerland, and has agreed the Germany-based Goettingen plant to become its third base in Europe serving for the automotive market. In addition, new aluminum automotive sheet projects are also in progress in the US-based Oswego plant, Germany-based Nachterstedt plant and China-based Changzhou plant. These projects are estimated to be completed by late 2015 with the targeted capacities hitting 900,000 tons.

ALCOA:it took the lead to lavish USD670 million to expand its aluminum automotive sheet capacities in Iowa-based Davenport plant, Tennessee-based aluminum rolling plant, and the rolling plant jointly invested by Saudi Arabia.
