Bauxite Import Trend Forecast


The current topic of concern to the market is the opening of the ban on ore exports from Indonesia in early January 2017: 42% of the bauxite above the grade can be exported to foreign companies that have invested and built factories in Indonesia within five years. The long list was changed to a mining permit system, and the 51% share was gradually transferred to the Indonesian government. The New Deal benefited China's Weiqiao, Nanshan, Jinjiang, Yulin Nonferrous and Indonesian state-owned mines to a certain extent, solved the supply of low-temperature ore, and also impacted some long-distance bauxite ore sources. For domestic alumina companies, the recovery of bauxite mines in Indonesia has solved the shortage of low-temperature bauxite supply faced by the market this year, which has enabled the company's raw material needs to be protected in the current situation. However, for domestic companies that have plans to invest in factories in Indonesia or have already invested in the construction of factories, the overseas layout is rewarded, and they have the right of choice when exporting ore; other companies that only invest in mines but do not have plans to build factories, cooperate with them. Miners are less likely to export, and will be relatively disadvantaged in the supply and procurement of ore in the future.
