Growth For Global Games, But Challenges Remain
Metal consumption growth in Brazil will be driven by the construction sector in the coming years as
infrastructure spending is ramped up. In particular, we highlight preparations to host the 2014 FIFA
World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. We forecast steel consumption growth of
1.0% in 2012, before a pickup in subsequent years. Annual growth should average 5.6% over the 2012-
2016 period, buoyed by healthy infrastructure spending. We forecast infrastructure industry value to grow
by an average of 6.8% over the same period.
Production growth will disappoint previous years’ ambitious expectations, as weak margins will continue
to force a rationalisation of the sector. This trend is illustrated by ThyssenKrupp, Germany’s biggest
steelmaker, considering wooing suitors for its loss-making steel mills in Brazil.
Turning to the aluminium sector, energy costs account for nearly 35% of total production costs in Brazil.
This is relatively high when compared with global standards. This has led to production declines over the
past few years and even talks of facility closures by the major aluminium producers in the country.
However, the Brazilian government is currently considering power sector reforms that should be able to
address these concerns.

  • Russia Metals Report Q2 2014
    Published: 16-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 63
    The Russian metals sector will face headwinds over coming quarters as European and US demand remains weak and global oversupply weighs on metal prices. We expect production of key metals to remain modest, with company investment plans focusing on improving plant efficiency and reducing costs rather than building new plants or expanding production capacity. Despite weak growth, Russia will remain one of the world's largest producers of base and industrial metals including nickel, steel and alumin......
  • Research Report on Rare Earth (RE) Industry in China, 2014-2018
    Published: 10-Apr-2014        Price: US $2200 Onwards        Pages: 50
    Rare earth is a set of 17 chemical elements while the price of medium and heavy rare earth elements is over 10 times higher than that of light rare earth elements because of the scarcity. China began to massively export rare earth at low prices in the 1990s due to the low cost, including labor cost and environmental cost, which ceased the mining of rare earth in most countries in the world. Its reserves of rare earth once took 71.1% of the global reserves while the percentage declined to 23% ......

  • Canada Metals Report Q2 2014
    Published: 9-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 63
    BMI View: Given that much of Canada's metals production is exported, we expect the country's economic exposure to both the US and Mexico to underpin the industry's growth through 2018. Increasing manufacturing and industrial activity in both countries should help drive demand for metal inputs. Furthermore, a weaker Canadian dollar against the US dollar should provide upside for Canadian metals exporters. Our forecast for strong economic fundamentals in Canada, the US, and Mexico, combined with a......
  • Germany Metals Report Q2 2014
    Published: 9-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 58
    Germany's metals sector will continue to feel the squeeze as output prices remain low and costs stay stubbornly high. We forecast subdued growth in consumption of key metals such as steel, copper and aluminium, chiefly due to a muted outlook for economic activity in the country. Key metal consuming sectors such as autos and construction will remain weak. For autos production, we do not foresee a return to growth until 2018 at the earliest. Illustrative of challenges faced by the wider metals sec......
  • Mexico Metals Report Q2 2014
    Published: 9-Apr-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 47
    BMI Forecast: We forecast strengthening Mexican macroeconomic fundamentals from 2014 through 2018 will lead to solid production and consumption growth of steel. We expect expansion of the automotive, manufacturing, construction, and oil and gas sectors, all of which rely on steel as an input, through our forecast period as the Mexican economy continues to recover from recent economic weakness. Still, domestic producers are likely to face pressure from foreign imports, given global steel market o......

    BMI View: BMI's Q2 2014 Malaysia metals report analyses trends within the country's metals sector as the industry looks to assert its dominance as a leading producer in the Asia-Pacific region. Growth in Malaysian production of key metals such as steel and tin will be assisted by an increasingly supportive government which continues to take steps to increase investment in the sector, while introducing measures to protect the sector against cheap imports, or 'dumping' by foreign companies. In 201......
