Calcined Bauxite Market Trends

  • Increased use in the renewable energy sector is driving the market growth

Bauxite that has been treated and calcined has a high alumina content. However, some operations use fluid bed calcination instead of the rotary kiln that the bulk of calciners uses for the thermal treatment procedure. This item, among others, is used in the abrasives, cement, metallurgy, and refractory sectors. Bauxite consumption is rising as a result of the renewable energy industry. The increased production of aluminum in industrialized nations is another factor contributing to the expansion of the calcined bauxite industry. Alcoa, Bain Capital, and Cornerstone Capital are the major players in the market for calcined Bauxite. The manufacture and selling of calcined Bauxite is the main business of these organizations. North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific are the main geographical areas where the calcined bauxite market is expanding. The calcined bauxite market is thoroughly examined in the study, along with market size, market share, and market trends. As a result, the worldwide calcined bauxite market CAGR is expanding due to soaring demand for renewable energy.

The expanding automotive and construction industries also help fuel market expansion. Due to its high demand from numerous sectors, including those that utilize it frequently, such as abrasives, metallurgy, refractories, and road surfacing, the aggregate segment is anticipated to dominate the market over the projection period. Bauxite has been dried out and sintered at temperatures above 15,000 °C to up its alumina content, refractoriness, iron content, hardness, and toughness. This is the raw Bauxite that has been calcined. It is also referred to as refractory Bauxite and has a high level of heat resistance due to its high aluminum concentration and low impurity level. Bauxite that has been calcined has an alumina content of 84–88 percent compared to raw Bauxite, which has an alumina content of around 55–58 percent. Due to its exceptional heat resistance, durability, and resistance to molten slag, it is a raw material for refractory products in many industries. Thus, driving the Calcined Bauxite market revenue.

Calcined Bauxite Market Segment Insights

Calcined Bauxite Purity Insights

The Calcined Bauxite market segmentation, based on purity, includes High Purity [>85%], Low Purity [<85%]. The high Purity [>85%] category held the largest share. High-purity calcined Bauxite is obtained by calcining (heating) superior-grade bauxite at high temperatures (from 85OC to 1600C). Eliminating moisture raises the alumina content. Calcined Bauxite has an alumina content of 84% to 88%, whereas raw Bauxite has an alumina content of roughly 57% to 58%. Rotating kilns are used to carry out the heating.

Calcined Bauxite Application Insights

The Calcined Bauxite market segmentation, based on application, includes Abrasives, Refractory Materials, Metallurgy, Road Surfacing, and Others. The metallurgy category led the market in 2022 due to rising end-use industry demand from numerous worldwide areas, including metallurgy and construction. The demand for renewable sources, such as calcined bauxite, is also anticipated to rise in the coming years due to growing concerns about warming brought on by increased carbon emissions. This is expected to have a significant positive impact on industry growth over the forecast period

Calcined Bauxite Industry Developments

May 2022: The U.S. calcination facilities were first bought by Bauxite. The deal includes the two manufacturing facilities owned by USC, with rotary kilns, at Wrens (250,000 tpa proppant capacity) and Andersonville, Georgia (100,000 tpa). The acquisition is significant because it would give FBX access to calcination facilities that will allow it to offer calcined refractory grades to the American market.

October 2021: When it first entered the non-metallurgical Bauxite and refractory clay markets, Bautek Minerais Industriais Ltda. Worked with MINERALS from the Cofermin Group for downstream help on the marketing and distribution side.
