The five Primary Aluminium producers in the GCC collectively produced 5,771,854 tons of high quality primary Aluminium in 2019 for the local and international market.

The increase of around 363,600 tons over last year is mainly due to the new line 6 expansion at Aluminium Bahrain.

The Primary and Downstream aluminium producers in the GCC continued to maintain their leadership position in the international market by contributing around 10% of the world aluminium demand exporting 60% of its production to more than 65 countries around the world.
