The report 'Global and China Alumina and Electrolytic Aluminum Industry 2012-2013' analyses the supply and demand and industry development trend of alumina and electrolytic aluminum in China and worldwide, and sheds light on the business performance and development planning of key enterprises in the global and Chinese aluminum industry.
According to the 89 page report, as the electricity cost in western region is lower than that in the eastern region of China, the electrolytic aluminum capacity of the western region has continued to expand, but in the meantime, the high energy-consuming and high-cost electrolytic aluminum capacity of the eastern region hasn't been reduced in large scale, leading to serious overcapacity in China's electrolytic aluminum industry in 2012.
The rising bauxite and power costs as well as the sluggish LME prices have led to large-scale losses in the global aluminum industry. In order to cope with the dual pressure from rising costs and sluggish prices, domestic and foreign enterprises have integrated upstream resources and expanded downstream products. In addition, giants like RUSAL have planned to cut the production moderately and eliminate backward production capacity.
