About This Report


Although Australia is the world's largest producer of bauxite and a substantial producer of alumina, it ranks about fifth in terms of global aluminium output. By far, the largest producer worldwide is China. Australia is expected to produce 1.8 million tonnes of aluminium in 2013-14, compared with 2.0 million tonnes five years earlier. Exports account for over half of industry revenue – an estimated $3.2 billion in 2013-14 – with Asia making up approximately 90.0% of total exports. Although the industry consists of just 58 establishments in 2013-14, five major aluminium smelters generate over three-quarters of industry revenue.

Firms in this industry primarily smelt alumina to produce aluminium, reprocess scrap aluminium and cast aluminium metal into basic shapes or to customer specifications. Companies also manufacture aluminium alloys from primary aluminium at the same facility.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
