Over the past two years, the global traded bauxite market has undergone a transformational change, with China increasing its imports from 52 Mt in 2016 to an estimated 82 Mt in 2018. Supply-side dynamics have seen different countries and suppliers entering and exiting the market with a frequency not seen in other bulk material markets. Grades and prices fluctuate routinely, as do the perceived requirements of the major customers. And with the impact of IMO2020 regulations on the world’s freight market just around the corner, there’s no better time to receive export bauxite market analysis and intelligence from the leaders in the field. This monthly publication provides readers with not only a snapshot of the market, including key prices, trends and news, but also CM’s unique assessment of different bauxite grades based on our benchmark Value-in-Use (ViU) assessment methodology.
