At this time when the plans for establishing a smelter capacity is being made, there is a need for an in depth 'study, despite the poor da1B, to determine the aluminium demand forecast which is inwluable for any practical capacity planning for such a very capi- 1111 intensive industry. Various method used for medium and long. term forecasts in the ferrous and non-fwrous industry were exam~ ned as well as determining the main factors which influence alum~ mium consumption. Based on this a methodology was developed and used in making aluminium demand forecast for Nigeria for the year 1982 to 2.000. Direction for further work was also made
