Calcined Bauxite Market Size, Share, and COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Type (Aggregate, Powder), By Application (Abrasives, Refractory Materials, Metallurgy, Cement, Others), and Regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region :Global | Report ID: FBI106751 | Status : Ongoing



The global calcined bauxite market is expected to witness significant growth by 2029 during the forecast period. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for abrasives, refractory materials, metallurgy, and cement products. The growing construction and automotive sectors also contribute to the growth of the market. The aggregate segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period due to its high demand from widely used industries such as abrasives, road surfacing, metallurgy, and refractories.

Calcined bauxite is composed by adding high-grade alumina bauxite at temperatures between 1,600 to 1,800°C. The calcination process removes moisture and impurities from bauxite and helps increase alumina content, grain hardness, and consistency of bauxite ore. Thus, this results in calcined bauxite being an abstract material used in the production of wide types of refractory materials. This is due to its ability to withstand very high temperatures and rusty surfaces present within an explosive furnace. Also, due to its grain hardness and angular shape, calcined bauxite is used in the production of various abrasives.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Calcined Bauxite Market

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and strict government regulations imposed on many developed and developing countries have disrupted the supply chain. Restrictions on people’s movements led to a significant decrease in the demand for discretionary consumption articles such as automobiles This contributed to a significant decrease in demand for abrasives, refractories, and calcined bauxite during the pandemic.
