China August Aluminum Output Fell
- Sep 14, 2017 -

China’s aluminum output fell for two consecutive months to the lowest level since April 2016 in August, according to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS).China's aluminum output was 2.64 million tonnes in August, down 3.7% year-on-year and below July’s 2.69 million tonnes.

In absolute terms, China’s August aluminum production is the lowest since April 2016—if we ignore February 2017 when production fell due to fewer days and China’s Lunar New Year holidays. It’s the first time since August 2016 that China’s aluminum production has registered a yearly fall.

China’s smelting cuts were aimed for the fourth quarter to lower the country’s pollution levels during the winter months.  Lower production and high price will invite  fewer exports.
