Listen: Mexican aluminum smelters use US scrap imports to shore up supplies

Platts started assessing scrap prices in Mexico in the first week of February, and the aluminum market is proving to be quite different from its neighbor to the north. Henrique Ribiero, metals editor for the Latin American markets, talks with Sarah Baltic, market editor in Pittsburgh, about the unique aspects of the Mexican market, including currency considerations and bucking benchmark trends, the appetite from smelters, how prices vary on either side of the Mexico-US border, and scrap assessments.

Comments about possible A380 and P1020 assessments for Mexico can be sent to Ribiero or Karen McBeth, editorial director of metals pricing and market engagement. And for more details about Mexico's growing aluminum industry and Platts price development, watch the replay of the 2016 Platts Metals Webinar Series -- Webinar 1.
