ARLINGTON, VA. — The Aluminum Association released today the 2012 Aluminum Statistical Review, the most comprehensive source for North American industry data, covering every cycle of the production process from primary aluminum to finished goods to the recovery of aluminum scrap. The review shows that, for the third straight year, aluminum demand grew in the United States and Canada, led by growth in the transportation and building and construction markets.
