Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Over the past five years, revenue for the Aluminum Ore Mining industry in China has been increasing at an annualized rate of 10.1% to $5.6 billion. Fluctuations in the global aluminum market are reflected in this industry. With the recovery from recession in the global economy in 2010 and 2011, aluminum and bauxite prices increased again. Then in recent years, the slowdown of downstream industries in China has limited revenue growth. However, China is still the largest aluminum production country and consumption country, which has been stimulating demand for aluminum ore. In 2017, revenue is set to grow 7.2%.

China is relatively poor in bauxite ore reserves and resources. The country's total bauxite ore exploration accounts for less than 10.0% of the global total...

Industry value-added is expected increase at an annualized rate of 8.0% between 2012 and 2022. This value-added growth is much higher than China's average GDP growth over the same period of about 6.5%. Further, the industry's enterprise numbers are expected to increase to 67 in 2017. These factors indicate that the industry is in the growth stage of its life cycle.

China will continue to promote domestic urbanization and industrialization, which will drive demand for aluminum products. In addition, annual per capita aluminum consumption in China is much lower than in developed economies, indicating the industry has the potential for high future growth.

Due to insufficient domestic bauxite supplies, domestic aluminum smelters rely heavily on imported bauxite. The..

    What is the Aluminum Ore Mining Industry?

    The Aluminum Ore Mining industry in China consists of enterprises that mine bauxite, the principal ore of aluminum, and process raw materials such as washing and ore dressing. More than 90.0% of bauxite is further processed into alumina, with the remainder used as refractory materials, abrasive materials and raw materials for high-alumina cement. There are four main bauxite types: karst accumulation bauxite, lateritic bauxite, sedimentary bauxite and aluminum concentrate.
