Goldman Sachs: At present, aluminum prices are low, and aluminum prices will rise next year, but China's supply will limit the rise in aluminum prices next year. Aluminum prices are expected to be $2,100/ton, $2,000/ton and $2,000/ton in the next three, six and 12 months, respectively. Aluminum prices are expected to be between US$2,000 and US$2,100 per ton in the next two years, and will increase to US$2,300 due to supply gaps in 2023.
