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...purchase to read more.

Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

Large-scale bauxite mining has a relatively short history in China; most of the industry's enterprises were established after 1980. The strong performance of the industry over the past decade was mainly due to China's booming real estate and automobile industries, the two largest aluminum consumers. However, limited bauxite reserves and relatively low aluminum content has restricted the development of the industry to a certain extent. The majority of China's bauxite is embedded in sedimentary deposits. Therefore, it is difficult to establish large-scale open-pit mines. Most of the industry's enterprises are located in four provinces: Henan, Guizhou, Guangxi and Shanxi. In ...purchase to read more.

    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.
