Australia is the world's largest producer of bauxite, accounting for about one-third of global output. Bauxite production in Australia is estimated to reach 82.0 million tonnes in 2014-15, up from 67.8 million tonnes in 2009-10. Over this period, expansion projects at bauxite mines have increased mine output. Most bauxite mined in Australia is locally processed into alumina, with over one-third of industry revenue projected to be derived from exports in 2014-15. Bauxite imports are negligible.
Firms in the industry primarily mine bauxite, the raw material from which alumina and aluminium are produced.
