Sales of new energy vehicles increasing sharply, and aluminum alloys usher in new opportunities
Although new energy vehicles are not very mature in many aspects, their emergence has certain significance for energy saving, emission reduction, reduction of exhaust emissions, and environment protection. There will be greater development in the future, and new opportunities to the aluminum industry.
In recent years, as the country has paid more and more attention to energy conservation and environmental protection, the new energy automobile industry has taken advantage of the trend under a series of policy subsidies. It has gradually become the darling of the market due to its advantages in safety and environmental protection. According to the data, before November of 2018, the sales of new energy vehicles increased by 68% year-on-year to 1.03 million units, breaking through the 1 million unit mark, which means that our country's new energy vehicle market has officially risen.
This is undoubtedly a new opportunity for the aluminum industry, indicating that aluminum alloys still have greater improvement in the new energy vehicle market. Aluminum alloy has low density, light weight, corrosion resistance, excellent plasticity, and high strength. It is the preferred lightweight material for new energy vehicles. It is mainly used in car bodies, panels, engines, chassis, suspensions, wheels, heat exchangers, batteries, etc. . With the increasing research of aluminum alloy in new energy vehicles, the application of aluminum alloy will be further expanded.
Facing such great business opportunities in new energy vehicles, the aluminum profile industry should pay more attention. First of all, it is necessary to clarify the problems that aluminum alloys will encounter in the lightweight application of new energy vehicles. At present, aluminum alloy processing requires more complicated technology compared with steel processing. Therefore, the difficulty of processing is a problem faced by many workers. Failure to process can easily affect the overall safety and stability of new energy vehicles.
