With over three decades of experience, Metal Bulletin’s flagship aluminium conference returns to Europe this year at what is a difficult time for the industry.
With prices languishing at $1,500 per tonne and premiums receding heavily, producers are facing considerable cost and competitive pressures. Capacity cutbacks and curtailments in 2015-2016 may help to lift values later this year but much will also depend on the strength of demand around the globe as well as inventory levels.
In the current conditions, getting a handle on when the bullish drivers will start to outweigh the bearish ones requires timely and insightful market information. Metal Bulletin’s International Aluminium Conference provides the best forum for discussion and debate for the entire value chain, as well as ample opportunity for networking and negotiating.
