Timetric's 'Global Bauxite Mining to 2020' report comprehensively covers global reserves of bauxite by country, historic and forecast data on bauxite production, aluminum prices, trade data for major ores and concentrates, and exporting and importing countries.
The report also includes factors affecting global demand for bauxite, profiles of major bauxite producing companies, and information on active, exploration and development bauxite projects.
It is an essential tool for companies active in the global bauxite mining landscape and for new competitors considering entering the industry.
Global bauxite reserves were 27.5 billion tonnes (Bnt) as of January 2016. Guinea had the world’s largest reserves, with 7.4Bnt, accounting for 26.9% of the global total, with most bauxite deposits located in the western and central part of the country. Australia held the second largest reserves at 6.2Bnt. The highest grade bauxite reserves are located in Queensland and the Northern Territory, with the Weipa and Gove mines having grades of 49–53% Al2O3. Brazil ranked third with 2.6Bnt of bauxite reserves, of which around 80% are located in the Trombetas region.
Global bauxite ore production was an estimated 279.7 million tonnes (Mt) in 2015, a decrease of 0.3% over the previous year, as a result of a decline in production from Brazilian and Chinese bauxite ore mines. Global bauxite production in 2014 at 280.6Mt was also, down by 5.2% over 2013 due to a fall in production from Indonesia. The country produced just 500kt in 2014, against 55.7Mt in 2013, as a result of the ban on exports of raw ores imposed at the beginning of 2014.
The report contains an overview of the global bauxite mining industry together with the key factors affecting the industry and demand for the commodity.
It also provides information about global bauxite reserves, historic and forecast data on bauxite production, data on major bauxite ores and concentrates exporting and importing countries, the competitive landscape and active, exploration and development bauxite projects.
