Strengthening the foundations of a fast-growing market

From galvanising to electrical wiring, DMCC plays a key role in supporting growing global demand for base metals. Worldwide, the market is valued at around US$170bn a year. With our strategic location, innovative infrastructure and world-class bulk transport facilities, we are strongly positioned to support regional consumption and provide a bridge between the core supply markets of sub-Saharan Africa, Australia and the Black Sea and the buoyant consumer economies of India and China. Ongoing regional development in refining and construction also continues to drive growth. At the same time, the region is fast emerging as a global centre for aluminium production, accounting for some two-thirds of all aluminium production investment.
