LONDON, July 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Growth Opportunities for Lightweight Metals in Automotive Industry are Driven by Strict Regulations for Reduction in CO2 Emissions

Download the full report:

Global trends targeted towards more energy efficient vehicles driven by the strict legislations regarding reduction of carbon dioxide emissions are putting pressure on the car OEMs.In order to achieve higher energy-efficiency and meet the legislative requirements, lighter cars must be built.

The key properties of each material that act as indicators for performance factors are identified and presented in detail.Application scope within the car is assessed, indicating which elements can be potentially replaced with aforementioned metals.

Assessment of needs from different application segments in automotive industry is carried out in order to identify the gaps and assess the future opportunities.
A listing of key innovations, best practice examples, stakeholder initiatives, and patent filing trends in automotive industries is included to give an indication of the road ahead for novel materials and its' manufacturing techniques to watch.

COIL : 2018 FIRST-HALF REVENUES - 7/19/2018 11:46:00 AM ET

Brussels, July 19, 2018 (5:45 pm) - COIL, the world leader for aluminium anodising, is reporting its revenues for the first half of 2018.

The first half of this year was marked by unprecedented aluminium price volatility. In December 2017, aluminium prices increased by 14% in just two weeks, but had returned to their previous levels by the end of March, only to rebound by 32% during the first half of April. They are currently 8% higher than their December 2017 prices.

In general, this price volatility does not directly affect COIL's results because it does not buy or sell the metal that it treats for its subcontracting business. In its project business, metal purchases are fully hedged when an order is taken. This situation has not had any effect on the Company's prices.

In addition, this volatility has a limited impact on underlying demand for aluminium, since end-users continue to purchase metal to satisfy end-market demand and competing materials (with the exception of steel) are significantly more expensive

However, high price volatility impacts the profitability of industrial aluminium users and significantly influences their purchasing and hedging strategies in the short term, particularly for metal distributors. For the first half of 2018, this situation was reflected in a destocking trend, concentrated primarily in the first quarter, with distributors needing to build their stock levels back up again from the second quarter faced with positive trends for underlying demand for continuous anodising.

In this environment, COIL recorded €12.1m of revenues for the first half of 2018, down 15.5% from the first half of 2017, with the first quarter accounting for all of this contraction. Sales of anodising services (€11.0m at June 30, 2018) are down 13.7% from the first half of 2017, but were stable in the second quarter of 2018.

Aluminium price volatility has also had a short-term effect on the project business. Sales of packaged offers (anodising with metal included) came to €1.1m, down compared with a high first half of 2017; they represent 9.2% of revenues at June 30, 2018, compared with 11.2% one year earlier. However, there was a strong resurgence in the level of enquiries in the second quarter.

From an industrial perspective, COIL has supported the start-up of its two new production lines in Belgium and Germany, which is expected to be reflected in certain related costs. The new automated batch anodising line, based on the new Aloxide® process, was opened in Belgium at the start of the year. The new Line 6 for continuous anodising in Germany is gradually taking on production from Line 3 in Belgium with a view to being fully operational by the end of September.

Given the current level of order intake, COIL expects the business to return to normal demand patterns in the second half of the year. With the new Aloxide® business coming on stream and the benefits of its Line 6 investment, the outlook for COIL's business is still excellent.

Next date: 2018 first-half earnings on October 2, 2018 (after close of trading).

COIL is the world's largest architectural and industrial anodiser.
