The European aluminium sector has just started adapting to the energy price shrunk due to adequate inventories and ease of power consumption restrictions. According to a report, inflation-adjusted futures prices for 2024 averaged 48 euros per megawatt hour, compared to 223 euros at the height of the crisis in August 2022.
 

But what is still causing hurdles to the market growth is passive demand and understated buying and selling sentiments, given the ongoing inflation and economic slowdown. As a result, aluminium producers are hesitant to resume their curtailed capacity, which is evident from the lacklustre growth of primary aluminium production.

In addition, various other factors are perhaps threatening the growth of the European aluminium market.
