Report summary

Wood Mackenzie expects that further expansion in alumina production capacity in China will be based on domestic bauxite resources rather than through imported ore. Any shortfall will be met by imported alumina or metal. As a consequence we expect new alumina production hubs to emerge in SE Asia to help China service its metal requirements.
