Alumina and Calcined Alumina Market Description
The total Alumina production was nearly 116 million metric tonnes in 2017. China accounted for about 53% of the global Alumina production. On account of the declined prices, several refineries in China shut the operations from end-2015. This prevented any significant rise in alumina production and hence the prices are stable during 2017.
China, Oceania and South America constitute 80% of the global Alumina production, by producing 48.62 MMT, 17.07 MMT and 10.86 MMT respectively during 2017. Alumina is primarily used as a feedstock for the fabrication of metallic aluminum (94%). Specialty calcined alumina (including calcined, tabular, white fused, reactive aluminas, high & ultrahigh purities) accounted for 3% of total alumina demand in 2017.
