Bauxite is rich in aluminum content rock, and the primary ore for aluminum extraction as it has over 35% to 40% of aluminum content. It is among the most widely found elements on earth, which contains nearly 25%-30% of alumina. According to a recent analysis done by Persistence Market Research (PMR), the growing primary aluminum production is triggering Bauxite demand, which is expected to accelerate further in the forthcoming years.

Bauxite is mainly consumed in alumina manufacturing in the aluminum industry, wherein approx. 6.5% of total Bauxite produced is used for non-metallurgical applications. However, the direct impact of Bauxite Mining on nature and surroundings have been raising concerns among environment advocates.

According to a recent PMR study, bauxite mining market is anticipated to grow at 6.6% CAGR by value, reaching US$ 20,661.9 MN by 2026 end. The report mentioned that in recent years, bauxite mining market has witnessed considerable developments from a competitive perspective. Mergers, collaborations, and acquisitions are some of the main strategies, companies are adopting to sustain in the worldwide bauxite mining market.

Whereas, the 5 main consumers of bauxite are China, India, Russia, Brazil, and Australia, which together held 81% share in total Bauxite consumption in 2017.

As per PMR report, China is envisaged to dominate bauxite mining market in terms of consumption. Moreover, it is the largest producer of aluminum products globally, which further makes it most significant consumer of alumina and bauxite, both of which are main pre-requisites for the manufacturing of aluminum products.
