An economic model of the US aluminium industry is constructed and estimated with annual data over the period 1960-78. The authors' analysis shows that both the short- and long-term price elasticities of demand are relatively low, and that demand is highly dependent on aluminium end-use activity. A forecasting exercise is also undertaken, and the errors of forecast calculated.
