U.S. imports of aluminum for consumption 2006-2018 The United States imported about 5.5 million metric tons of aluminum for consumption in 2018, while apparent consumption of aluminum totaled about 4.9 million metric tons. Canada is one of the largest aluminum exporters to the United States. A large majority of Canada’s primary aluminum is exported to the United States as an important part for the United States’ manufacturing industries.
Aluminum is one of the most consumed metal in the world and the demand for aluminum continues to grow as consumers turn to technological solutions for a variety of needs such as more efficient vehicles or sustainable packaging.

Aluminum tariffs

In 2018, a 10 percent tariff on aluminum imports into the United States was established under the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 and in response, China imposed a 25 percent tariff on aluminum scrap imports from the United States. The United States lifted sanctions on one of the largest aluminum sanctions in Russia, Russal, in 2019. China and Russia are two of the three largest producers of aluminum in the world.
