Indonesia Replaces Australia as Top Alumina Supplier to China, SMM Says

Industry News 09:47:32AM Nov 25, 2016 Source:SMM

SHANGHAI, Nov. 25 (SMM) – Indonesia beat Australia as China’s top alumina supplying country in September, customs data showed.

Imports from Australia tumbled 67.3% month-on-month to 31,500 tonnes in September, but imports from Indonesia surged 191.1% month-on-month to 81,800 tonnes. 

China’s alumina imports were 142,500 tonnes in September, up 10.7% from August, but down 62.3% from a year ago. 

SMM expects China’s alumina imports to increase slightly in the future since imported alumina has regained price advantage after big gains of domestic alumina prices.
