China Imports Of Bauxite Ore Rose By 24.9 Percent In 2019 Through July

As improvements to low-temperature alumina production continue by refiners in the People’s Republic of China, the country’s thirst for overseas bauxite increases. Such was the story told by Customs data released on Sunday that showed a 24.9 percent jump on the year in imported bauxite in the year’s first seven months.

Customs data on HS code 2606000000 bauxite revealed that the Middle Kingdom received 9.66 million metric tons of the ore in July. That total represents a rise of 3.8 percent on the month and 32.7 percent on the year.

For the year’s first seven months China imported a total of 65.99 million metric tons, translating to a 24.9 percent rise over imports for the first seven months of last year.

Per Customs, Guinea, Australia, and Indonesia were the three leading sources of imported bauxite ore in July. The trio accounted for fully 95 percent of all imported bauxite that month.

July saw 4.54 million metric tons of bauxite ore arrive from Guinea, off by 2 percent on the month. Australian imports of bauxite ore totaled 3.37 million metric tons, increasing by 3 percent over June’s total. Meanwhile Indonesia gained significant ground in the month of July, increasing imports by 12 percent to 1.32 million metric tons.
