Alumina Price Outlook

Alumina prices soared to the highest level in nearly two years on 7 October, likely buoyed by ongoing supply disruptions. Alumina traded at USD 478 per metric ton on 7 October, which was 48.6% higher than on the same day in the prior month. Moreover, the price was 80.4% higher than on the same day last year and was up 61.2% on a year-to-date basis. Prices for alumina have rallied in recent weeks, as August’s fire at the Jamalco alumina refinery in Jamaica sparked concerns over supply. On 1 October, the company announced that full production was not expected before end-September 2022, which confirmed worries and sent prices surging. Meanwhile, higher prices for alumina refining, amid rising energy costs globally, will have provided an additional boost.
