Aluminum heat transfer composites are mainly used in heat exchange systems of machinery and equipment as well as air-cooling systems of thermal power stations. Other uses include automobiles and home appliances. According to “Global and Chinese Aluminum Heat Transfer Material Industry Report, 2013-2016”, a research report from Research and Markets, the global output of aluminum heat transfer composites in 2013 reached about 1.34 million tons, representing a year-on-year increase of 7.2 percent.

The study reports that China is a major consumer of aluminum heat transfer composites. For instance, in 2013, the rapid growth of the Chinese automobile market effectively boosted the demand for aluminum heat transfer composites to 510,600 tons. Driven by Chinese automotive light-weighting, machinery and equipment, household appliances and other industries, China's demand for aluminum heat transfer composites will continue to grow in the coming years.
