Global alumina import and export 2005-2015 The statistic shows the global import and export timeline of alumina from 2005 to 2015, in thousand metric tons. The total export increased from 30 million in 2005 to 39 million metric tons at the end of 2014.
Alumina and aluminum

Alumina is the common name for aluminum(III) oxide. It is used to produce aluminum metal. Aluminum ranks number one in the consumption volumes among all base metals, and is expected to strengthen its dominant position as a key structural material in the coming years. The increasing global demand for aluminum continues to be driven by China in 2015. The country made up half of the primary aluminum consumption worldwide in 2015, fourfold the share of the second-placed Middle East, and was also the largest aluminum smelter producer worldwide by a wide margin. Usage of the metal will, however, likely to see a decrease across most regions in the world in 2020.

Global export of alumina has been increasing year-on-year and almost reached the 40 million metric ton mark in 2014. The import trend went in the opposite direction, but the total volume of global alumina import and export has hit a fresh high in 2014. As of 2016, most of the world’s largest aluminum producers were located in Asia, including the top four producing companies, which were the source of some 50 million metric tons of alumina. China’s Chalco vaulted its local rival Xinfa and Russia’s Rusal to top the list, producing 16 million metric tons of aluminum.
