Business Segments Description

Alcoa’s operations consist of five worldwide segments: Alumina and Chemicals, Primary Metals, Flat-Rolled Products, Engineered Products, and Packaging and Consumer. Alcoa businesses that are not reported to management as part of one of these five segments are aggregated and reported as “Other.” Alcoa’s management reporting system measures the after-tax operating income (ATOI) of each segment.

Alumina and Chemicals

This segment consists of Alcoa’s worldwide alumina and chemicals system that includes the mining of bauxite, which is then refined into alumina. Alumina is sold directly to internal and external smelter customers worldwide or is processed into industrial chemical products. The industrial chemical products are sold to a broad spectrum of markets including refractories, ceramics, abrasives, chemicals processing, and other specialty applications. Alcoa’s alumina operations in Australia are a significant component of this segment. Slightly more than half of Alcoa’s alumina production is sold under supply contracts to third parties worldwide, while the remainder is used internally.

Primary Metals

This segment consists of Alcoa’s worldwide smelter system. Primary Metals receives alumina primarily from the Alumina and Chemicals segment and produces aluminum ingot to be used by Alcoa’s fabricating businesses, as well as sold to external customers, aluminum traders, and commodity markets. Results from the sale of aluminum powder, scrap, and excess power are also included in this segment, as well as the results of aluminum derivative contracts.

Flat-Rolled Products

This segment’s principal business is the production and sale of aluminum plate, sheet, and foil. This segment includes rigid container sheet (RCS), which is sold directly to customers in the packaging and consumer market and is used to produce aluminum beverage cans. Seasonal increases in RCS sales are generally experienced in the second and third quarters of the year. This segment also includes sheet and plate used in the transportation, building and construction, and distributor markets (mainly used in the production of machinery and equipment and consumer durables), of which approximately two-thirds is sold directly to customers while the remainder is sold through distributors.

Engineered Products

This segment includes hard- and soft-alloy extrusions, including architectural extrusions, super-alloy castings, steel and aluminum fasteners, aluminum forgings, and wheels. These products serve the aerospace, automotive, commercial transportation, industrial gas turbine, building and construction, and distributor markets (mainly used in the production of machinery and equipment) and are sold directly to customers and through distributors.

Packaging and Consumer

This segment includes consumer, foodservice, and flexible packaging products; food and beverage closures; plastic sheet and film for the packaging industry; and imaging and graphic communications for the packaging industry. The principal products in this segment include aluminum foil; plastic wraps and bags; plastic beverage and food closures; flexible and protective packaging products; design and prepress services; gravure and flexographic image carrier products; thermoformed plastic containers and extruded plastic sheet and film. Consumer products are marketed under brands including Reynolds Wrap® , Diamond® , Baco® , and Cut-Rite® wax paper. Seasonal increases generally occur in the third and fourth quarters of the year for such products as consumer foil and plastic wraps and bags, while seasonal slowdowns for closures generally occur in the fourth quarter of the year. Products are generally sold directly to customers, consisting of supermarkets, beverage companies, food processors, retail chains, and commercial food-service distributors.


This group includes other Alcoa businesses that are not included in the segments previously mentioned. This group includes AFL, which produces electrical components for the automotive industry, and produces fiber-optic cable and provides services to the telecommunications industry; the residential building products operations, Alcoa Home Exteriors; and automotive parts businesses. Products in this segment are generally sold directly to customers or through distributors.
