Where next for China's alumina capacity growth?

Report summary

Will China continue to dominate global alumina capacity growth in the future? Against a backdrop of tighter environmental regulations and increasing reliance on seaborne bauxite, we see growing potential for China to look offshore. Wood Mackenzie investigates the merits for continued Chinese-based alumina capacity growth against that located in bauxite-rich producer countries on an illustrative cost and cash flow basis.
