Bauxite is the raw material of aluminium. 90% of aluminium production is made from bauxite ore. Its most common use is aluminium production. As production of aluminium oxide and liquid aluminium, bauxite production differs from region to region. Bauxite is also used in the production of elements such as vanadium and gallium.

Aluminium made from bauxite ore is the raw material of countless products. Across the world, thousands of tons of aluminium produced from bauxite ores have a wide range of uses from packaging to spacecraft. Aluminium oxide is a white powder produced by refining red bauxite, as it contains nearly 30–40% iron. Aluminium metal is produced from mainly gibbsite and boehmite bauxite ore
