By 2025 the aluminum market of Russia will have reached 2.8 million tons.
According to Valentin Trischenko, the chairman of the Aluminum Association, the main component of the development is the transition from the raw materials exports to deep processing.
To reach this goal, it is necessary to increase import-replacing products manufacture, expand the usage of aluminum in industries and develop exports of aluminum products with high added value.
At present the share of imported semi-finished products on the Russian market is still considerable (200 thousand tons per year). (Ukrainian metal)
