The main countries with bauxite resources in the world include Guinea, Australia, Brazil, Jamaica, China, Indonesia, India, Ghana, Dominica, Fiji, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Russia. The global bauxite resources are about 55-75 billion tons, and the reserves are about 28.1 billion tons, which can be used for more than 100 years.
In terms of reserves, bauxite supply is not a problem, but there are still several drivers to consider, such as geographic location, taste, national policy, infrastructure, capital and investment security. Especially in Asian countries, there are policy objectives for processing. As a result, the structure of the industry is likely to change as the production center shifts.
