Aggregate demand excluding China increased by 5.2% to 7.2 million tons, while demand in China increased by 15.4% to 9.2 million tons. Among the sectors of final consumption of aluminum, the fastest growth is shown by the transport industry.

Global aluminum production in the first quarter increased by 5.9% on an annualized basis to 16.75 million tons, thanks to an increase in production in China by 9.6% to 9.8 million tons. At the same time, production in the rest of the world grew by only 1% to 7 million tons.
