Squeezed by cheap imports, a strong Australian dollar and falling downstream demand, the Aluminium Rolling, Drawing, Extruding industry has faced significant challenges over the past five years. Demand from downstream industries fell during the global financial crisis and has yet to recover. This has been further compounded by the gradual decline of the automotive sector over the past five years, as the major motor vehicle manufacturers have started to wind down their local operations. At the same time, a global aluminium oversupply has caused aluminium prices to plummet, adding to the woes faced by industry operators.
