Listen: Annual billet upcharges are still unclear, but demand is strong for 2018

Recent Platts spot billet upcharges are being driven higher by strong extrusion demand and a handful of supply issues, which may continue into next year. Karen McBeth, director of metals pricing and market engagement, speaks with Sarah Baltic Hilliard, Americas aluminum products pricing specialist, about the trends to watch in the market, including whether Hurricanes Harvey and Irma could have longer-term effects on billet demand and what disruptions may be in store for the Quebec smelter ABI in light of union contract negotiations.
