Global Bauxite Market Overview:
Bauxite is the principal ore of aluminum. Sintered bauxite is used as an oil field proppant, in drilling for oil and natural gas. The United States has a few small bauxite deposits but at least 99% of the bauxite used in the United States is imported. Bauxite is found at many locations around the world. In 2017 the leading bauxite producing countries were Australia, China, Brazil, India, Guinea, Jamaica, Russia, and Kazakhstan. Other minerals that could be used instead of bauxite for alumina production such as Clay minerals, alunite, anorthosite, power plant ash. Some of the key players profiled in the study are CHALCO (China), Rusal (Russia), BHP Billiton Group (Australia), CVG Bauxilum (Venezuela), Glencore International (Switzerland), Hindalco Industries (India), National Aluminum (India), Norsk Hydro ASA (Norway), Rio Tinto Alcan (Canada) and United Company RUSAL (Russia).
On the basis of geography, the market of Bauxite has been segmented into South America (Brazil, Argentina, Rest of South America), Asia Pacific (China, Japan, India, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia, Rest of Asia-Pacific), Europe (Germany, France, Italy, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Rest of Europe), MEA (Middle East, Africa), North America (United States, Canada, Mexico). If we see Market by Distribution Channel, the sub-segment i.e. Online will boost the Bauxite market. Additionally, the rising demand from SMEs and various industry verticals gives enough cushion to market growth.
