Arconic Markets

Arconic’s largest and fastest growing market is aerospace, where Alcoa has had a major presence since the Wright brothers’ first flight. Fueled by an expanding middle class and increasing air travel, global aircraft demand has led to the largest order book in aviation history, with a nine-year backlog for both commercial jets and engines. Arconic is well-positioned to benefit from that growth with a range of high performance multi-materials and highly engineered products and solutions for engines and structures on virtually every aircraft platform.

Arconic is a leader in delivering a wide range of structural components such as fasteners, sheet and plate, forgings, extrusions and castings. Aircraft are reducing weight and improving aerodynamics to improve efficiency. Arconic’s unmatched capabilities, proprietary alloys and technologies deliver the structural solutions needed to help create the world’s most efficient aircraft.

Arconic produces approximately ninety percent of jet engine components, from the world’s most advanced blades and vanes to rings and discs. The jet engine is the main lever to improve the efficiency of an aircraft, and significant improvements are being targeted by major OEMs to meet customer demands to decrease fuel burn by 15 percent, emissions of NOx by 50 percent and noise levels by 15 decibels. Arconic’s advanced airfoil and engine component capabilities help deliver these reductions and a 30 percent improvement in the maintenance cycle.

Inexpensive, clean natural gas is increasing the use of gas-fired power generation in the United States, now making up one third of all electricity produced in the country. Additionally, growth comes from emerging countries focused on quickly and cost-effectively building out their energy supply, in response to population growth and the rise of the middle class. Arconic is strongly positioned to capture that increased demand as, in response, utilities move towards more efficient turbines that run on cleaner, more cost-effective natural gas. As the leader in advanced airfoils and other components for industrial gas turbines, Arconic produces high-quality parts intelligently designed to withstand the extreme operating temperatures often higher than the melting point of the metal itself. Today, approximately 75 percent of gas turbines worldwide use airfoils produced by Arconic.

North America is Arconic’s most important automotive market. In North America, new stringent federal fuel economy regulations, coupled with increasing consumer demand for more fuel efficient vehicles, is leading automakers to rethink vehicle design and push ahead with alternate powertrains, new technologies and advanced materials. Aluminum offers automakers the fastest, safest, most environmentally-friendly and cost-effective way to get the job done. Low-density aluminum is a game-changer and automakers are taking full advantage of all the consumer benefits it provides.

This move to aluminum-intensive vehicles further benefits Arconic and we have been aggressively capturing increased demand for automotive aluminum sheet, with demand expected to increase tenfold between 2012 and 2025. Arconic’s Micromill technology is providing us a further competitive edge in both cost efficiency and innovation, enabling us to attack steel components. Outside of North America, automotive production also remains strong in Europe and China – driven by stable consumer sentiment, availability of affordable credit and low fuel-prices.




As governments move to greater enforcement of emissions and fuel efficiency regulation, the trajectory of lightweighting solutions for the commercial transportation market remains strong. In China, the world’s largest commercial transportation market, the majority of trucks and buses still run on heavy steel wheels, providing tremendous growth opportunity for lightweight, low-maintenance aluminum wheels as well as lightweighting opportunities in mass transportation from high speed rail to metrocars. In Europe, market forces are accelerating a shift from steel to aluminum wheels. Due to the ability to increase payload and fuel efficiency while decreasing cost of ownership, North America has the world’s highest aluminum wheel adoption rates. As the acknowledged global leader in forged aluminum heavy duty truck wheels, Arconic is the company best positioned to benefit from those positive market opportunities.

The North American building and constrcution market, where Arconic’s Kawneer systems are the acknowledged leader, remains strong. Globally, the non-residential building and construction market continues to be driven by key megatrends including growth of the middle class, urbanization, growing demand for energy efficient structures able to withstand security and climate threats; and an increasing appreciation of design and aesthetics. Arconic is well positioned around the world to capture the growth driven by these trends. Europe continues its gradual-but-steady recovery, the market in China is expected to return to higher growth rates over the next three years and the Indian market will continue to grow at a high rate.

Arconic’s brazing applications are benefitting from the increasing need for thermal efficiency to improve efficiency, durability and emissions in automotive powertrain and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems. Given Arconic’s leadership in providing multilayer brazing sheet solutions for the most challenging heat exchanger applications, it is ideally positioned to deliver the necessary combination of strength, thermal conductivity and corrosion resistance for advanced heat exchangers in the automotive and HVAC markets.

Serving a range of markets, Arconic leverages the unique characteristics of aluminum to help fabricate better-performing industrial products. We make strong, lightweight, corrosion-resistant materials used in applications that range from building and construction, machinery and circuitry to cookware and appliances.
