Bauxite And Brown Fused Alumina Supply Shortage

- Jan 18, 2018-


Chinese government policies have a significant influence on industrial mineral supply to the international market.

The cumulative effects of swift and robust central government policies in cracking down on pollution, explosives provision, and unlicensed businesses, not to mention domestic market demand factors, have combined to create a storm of severe shortages and soaring prices for key industrial minerals exported from China. The impact has been keenly felt by consumers of refractory raw materials such as calcined bauxite, brown fused alumina, dead burned and fused magnesia, and graphite. And the situation gets serious after 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China commencing 18 October in the Great Hall of the People.
