The factors of competitiveness of the EU aluminum downstream in the study of the LUISS University in Rome.
Finally the interests of the downstream aluminum industry sectors, such as rolling, foundry casting and extrusion, have been analyzed. Segments representing over 90% of the workforce in the sector, but so far neglected by previous studies, focused on the production of primary. The study, carried out by the LUISS University of Rome on behalf of FACE, analyzes the main factors of competitiveness for the EU processing aluminum companies, generally medium and small private companies, and confirms the negative role of the EU duty on raw metal, whose extra costs for European transformers was estimated up to 15,5 billion euro for the period 2002-2013. The report is an exceptional document of 200 pages with 134 diagrams and 51 tables with updated data on production, consumption, import/export flows of various aluminum products, and trend of prices and premium of the raw materials.
