35 m tonnes in FY09. driven largely by increased industrial consumption in China. Asia. On the other hand. accounting for 35% of global primary aluminium consumption in 2008. the steep depreciation of Indian rupee against the US dollar impacted the industry positively.FINANCIAL ANALYSIS OF HINDALCO INDUSTRIES LIMITED GLOBAL ALUMINIUM INDUSTRY Global production of primary aluminium rose continuously from 32 million tonnes (MT) in 2005 to 38 MT in 2007. The total aluminium production in the country stood at around 1. during 2008 the production remained flattish at around 38 MT (2007 levels) on account of significant fall in demand in the second half of the year due to the global credit crisis. However. Strong growth in industrial. it declined by around 3%YoY to 37 MT in 2008 The Indian aluminium industry registered a growth of around 9% in FY09. Prospects Overseas Demand Boosting Metal Prices .Demand in emerging markets like China and India. This created a large amount of demand supply gap. As far as the global consumption goes. However. realizations for the fiscal fell significantly on account of fall in LME prices due to the global credit crisis.

US 16 . registering a CAGR of 9%. have boosted US metal prices. thus making the inventory levels at LME reach their multi year highs. once again showed the largest annual increase in consumption of primary aluminium. coupled with drastically reduced inventories and lower output. which has emerged as the largest aluminium consuming nation. automobile. thus causing a dent in margins.

the demand for aluminium is projected to fall by around 7% in 2009 on account of subdued conditions in the key user industries. Steel import permit applications declined 23 percent compared to May. Some say US auto production is too weak to sustain higher prices. Steel Imports Drop . As per Alcoa. The domestic steel industry accounts for about 9 percent of heavy emissions in the US heavy industry sector. Climate Bill Could Impact Steel Costs . with Japan. China is projected to maintain the consumption levels of 2008 mainly due to the fiscal stimulus package that is likely to support its ailing economic growth. and could fall further unless an offset penalty is imposed on imported steel.A Congressional climate-change bill could add $1 billion to production costs for US steel producers by 2030. while domestic production has slowed to 49 percent of capability. according to a recent Goldman Sachs report. The revival in the demand for the metal is expected to start from 2010 while Chinese consumption may slow. consumer durables. 17 . however.
