Aluminium Wire Prices, Price, News, Monitor
In the second quarter of 2023, Aluminium Wire prices in North America experienced a decline driven by uncertain economic conditions and a rising inflation rate. In April, a decrease in Aluminium Wire prices occurred due to reduced demand from the downstream construction industry. Surplus availability of imported Aluminium Wire at lower prices from the overseas market led local mills to lower their offer prices. In May, a debt crisis stemming from the simultaneous downfall of major banks in the USA had a significant impact on the US market. This crisis prompted buyers to withhold placing large orders, anticipating further price declines. Tariffs were imposed to boost consumption of locally manufactured Aluminium Wire and reduce inventory levels in the US spot market. Despite the tariff imposition, high inventory levels persisted as consumption rates decreased in the USA, leading the US government to impose countervailing duties on imported Aluminium Wires from the European and Asian markets.
