The domestic market is optimistic, especially in the non-ferrous metal sector, where the performance of Shanghai aluminum is closely watched. With limited changes in the supply side of Shanghai aluminum and destocking of aluminum ingots in social warehouses, market prices have been stabilized to some extent, avoiding a price collapse due to oversupply, and also indicating that the market supply-demand relationship is gradually balancing, providing strong support for prices. At the same time, with the gradual recovery in consumption, demand for aluminum materials is also increasing. Whether in the construction, automotive, electronics, or packaging industries, the demand for aluminum materials is steadily increasing, providing strong impetus for the rise in aluminum prices. In addition, the support of domestic and foreign policies and the increase in environmental protection requirements have also promoted the expansion of the aluminum market, further enhancing the expectation of rising aluminum prices. Aluminum prices may rise today.
