Bauxite Mining Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type ( CA-50, CA-70, CA-80, Others ), By Application ( Metallurgical Alumina, Abrasives, Refractory, Cement, Others ) and regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region :Global | Report ID: FBI104161 | Status : Ongoing



Bauxite is a type of sediment rock with highest content of aluminum. It is the world’s principal source of aluminum and gallium. Bauxite contains gibbsite, boehmite, diaspore, and 2 iron containing ores haemetite and geoethite. Bauxite is mined using strip mining method as the ores are found near surfaces of terrains. The extraction of alumina is carried by Bayer’s process. It is generally found in tropical and sub-tropical regions like Australia, Brazil, India, China and others.

Increasing demand from end-use industries like chemicals, constructions, general manufacturing, steel, electronics and others for aluminum and alumina based products is likely to foster the market. For instance, bauxite is directly employed in producing aluminum based flocculating agents. It is also used in making refractory products due to its high boiling point. The increasing use abrasives, alumina based quick setting cement, and other industries shall rive the market growth.
