Top things we learnt about the aluminium market at Arabal 2016

Here are seven key things Metal Bulletin learnt at the Arabal 2016 conference, held in Dubai last week.

1. Primary aluminium premiums have stabilised from record-high levels. Overall fundamentals for aluminium remain strong. Value added products premiums are expected to remain healthy, according to Alba’s ceo Tim Murray.
2. Low oil prices have created economic pressures and hurt revenues but this has also created opportunities for Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) countries such as diversification away from oil into other key industries like aluminium, ceo of Emirates Global Aluminum (EGA) Abdulla J M Kalban said in his keynote address.
