Alumina’s Cost of Production Down to Near Record-Lows; Profitability at an 8-Year High
Abstract: World’s alumina production costs have declined amid: a) Lower energy prices (coal, natural gas and fuel oil), b) Lower caustic soda costs in Asia and the US, c) Lower bauxite costs in ROW (almost entirely offset by higher bauxite prices for Chinese bauxite importers though), and d) new lower-cost alumina refineries starting production in Vietnam, Saudi Arabia, India, Australia and China (alumina refineries with captive bauxite mines). We expect production costs to remain low mainly in a context of depressed energy prices.
