Roskill: Upturn in shipped, traded bauxite; market to be oversupplied short term

March 2013
American Ceramic Society Bulletin;Mar2013, Vol. 92 Issue 2, p4
The article discusses a report from British market research firm Roskill on how alumina refining and bauxite production has seemed to catch up with increased demand from China and other Asian countries for feedstock used in the aluminum industry. The positive effects of increased production of bauxite for the refractory ceramics industry are mentioned. Major producers of bauxite include Indonesia, India, Australia and China. A forecast regarding the oversupply of bauxite is also addressed.
