Since aluminum progressively turns into the preferred metal for OEMs all over industries bauxite mining endures expanding at a noteworthy per annum rate. Approximately 85% of bauxite mined worldwide is changed over to alumina that is additionally utilized for the generation of aluminum metal. Another significant use of bauxite mining is for commercial reason, for example, refractories and abrasives. The automobile sector is the significant end-user of aluminum metal attributable to related advantages of aluminum metals, for example, lightweight, high-density and corrosion-free features.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey information, in 2015, the world's aggregate bauxite production was 15% higher than that in 2014. Overall mine generation stated from 30 nations remained at XX. The main bauxite makers were China, Australia, Malaysia, Brazil, Guinea, India, and Jamaica. In which Australia and China together represented 49% of the world's manufacturing.

The bauxite mine production is foreseen to rise manifold throughout the world. New ventures are expected to come online in Australia, India's production increase, Indonesia extends exports and existing activities in Guinea are likely to drive expansion. North America regional market has been one of the biggest market shares and is most likely to remain dominant for bauxite mining on account of a raised requirement for aluminum in the region, trailed by Europe and the Asia Pacific over the years to come. Europe is considered to foresee marginal expansion. On the other hand, Asia Pacific regional market is anticipated to experience the highest expansion in the approaching years on account of the rising domestic requirement from the automobile sector in the developing markets of Japan, China and India.

Owing to lightweight, high-density and corrosion-free features, aluminum metal is gaining popularity in the automotive sector to produce lightweight vehicle components. This is fuelling the worldwide requirement for bauxite mining. Moreover, expansion in the transportation sector, for example, planes, trucks, marine, and railcars is additionally anticipated that would expand the worldwide bauxite mining demand. Strict government rules on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions have constrained automobile makers to deliver eco-friendly lightweight vehicles. Unrivaled properties of aluminum, for example, high density, corrosion resistance, high strength, high ductility, and lightweight have prompted its boosted implementation in the automotive sector to produce lightweight vehicle components. In this way, an increment in the utilization of aluminum drives the expansion of the bauxite mining market. Moreover, an increase in usage of bauxite for manufacturing concrete fuels the market expansion.

This has influenced and led the aluminum manufacturing companies in the direction of investing additionally in bauxite extraction industry. Recently, Metro Mining Ltd. an Australian mining and exploration company established in Brisbane, Queensland is foreseeing a cycle of successes to come as a result of its Bauxite Hills mine in Queensland. The novel agreements add up to 780,000t bauxite, 74% of that is scheduled for shipments at present, whereas 50% of Bauxite Hills’ contrived manufacture of 2 Mt this year gives out to Xinfa a foremost Chinese aluminum company. Metro Mining’s track record was coagulated by its gain as Australia’s prominent emerging mining company at the 2018 Dealers and Diggers Mining Forum in Kalgoorlie-Boulder at the beginning of August. The company reported an approximated reserve of 92.2Mt as well as total resources of 144.8Mt at the mines of Bauxite Hills. The company also indicated that it will transport bauxite into China all around a mine life of 17 years.

A few of the prominent market players active in the worldwide bauxite mining market are Access Industries, Aluminum Corporation of China Limited, Tata Steel Europe Ltd., Tajik Aluminium Company, Halco Mining, Mitsubishi Aluminum Co., Ltd., Nippon Light Metal Company, Ltd., Queensland Alumina Limited, Australian Bauxite Limited, Alumina Limited and Iranian Aluminium Company.
