Slower But Steady Growth Ahead
Canada’s mining sector will remain one of the steadiest growth stories in the Americas region thanks to
diversified mineral deposits and a steady pipeline of investment. Canada mineral production is
diversified across base and precious metals as well as industrial minerals. The country is a top ten global
producer of zinc, lead, iron ore, nickel, copper, gold, silver, uranium and potash. With many companies
both headquartered and producing in Canada, the mining sector is crucial to the Canadian economy. Thus,
we expect Canada’s political leadership to maintain favourable tax and regulatory policies for the sector.
However, weak US growth, eurozone troubles, and slowing, less commodity-intensive growth in
China, will lead to slow, albeit stable growth in the Canadian mining sector.
We have revised our forecast downward for Canada’s mining industry value from US$US33.8bn to
US$29bn in 2017 on the back of our outlook for weak Chinese and developed world growth. Though
global demand growth is likely to remain slow and global production capacity is at an all time high,
particularly for base metals, decreasing ore quality and rising costs among major mineral exporters should
encourage new exploration across Canada’s untapped resources. While Canada is less cost competitive on
a per-unit-of-output basis compared to some developing-world exporters, its technological, infrastructure,
and governance advantages makes it an attractive investment destination. Therefore, we forecast average
annual industry growth of 3.1% between 2012 and 2017 as Canada’s stable business environment attracts
consistent investment.
Canada’s well developed capital markets allow firms to access funding beyond traditional credit channels,
though equity financing has slowed. Canadian firms also led M&A activity in the first half of 2012, with
junior gold miners particularly engaged in deal making. Tax and royalty policies also remain favourable
for mining firms. Canada maintains a dual-tiered regulatory system, comprising both provincial and
federal stakeholders, and project approval can sometimes take upwards of several years. However,
Canada’s federal authorities have expressed interest in reforming and streamlining the system to prevent
one project from needing multiple government approvals.

    BMI View: Coal will be the primary component of the Czech Republic's mining industry over the next five years, though weak global prices will lead to stagnant growth and investment in the sector. The country also hosts the Rožná uranium mine, though it is set to close in mid-2017. The Czech Republic will remain one of Europe's largest producers of both thermal and metallurgical coal to 2019. Slightly over half of the country's electricity generation is derived from coal-fired power plants, pro......

    BMI View: Slovakia's mining industry is small relative to most other European markets. It is expected to remain as such through to the end of our 2015-2019 forecast period, with lignite production continuing to dominate overall output. Growth during this period will be undermined by the weakness in global commodity prices, which threaten to delay existing projects. However, we note longer-term growth potential in certain sub-sectors including gold and possibly uranium. Slovakia's mining sector i......

    BMI View: South Africa's mining sector growth will remain subdued as the country's gold and platinum sector face diminishing margins and industrial strife. Additionally, the coal and iron ore sectors will come under pressure as weak prices will dent production output over the coming quarters. Vast untapped mineral reserves, supportive government jurisdictions and few obstacles prohibiting foreign investment make South Africa's business environment one of the best on the continent. Despite this, ......

  • Brazil Mining Report Q2 2015
    Published: 8-Apr-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 84
    BMI View: Brazil's mining industry will see further growth over the next five years, though the industry's total value will not grow at the same heady rates experienced in the previous decade. Still, mine output will expand as both domestic and foreign firms increase production of both industrial and precious metals. Despite weak mineral prices, mine output growth in Brazil will remain solid, particularly for iron ore, to 2019. In the case of iron ore, we forecast prices will average lower year-......

  • Indonesia Mining Report Q2 2015
    Published: 3-Apr-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 113
    BMI View: The export ban on raw minerals will significantly impact production growth and hamper investment for Indonesia's mining industry. We do not expect any moderation of the ban in 2015 as the government seeks to attract foreign direct investment and add value to its mining sector. A possible moderation on the ban on bauxite ore is still on the cards for 2016. With the boom years in commodity prices behind us, we believe more miners in Indonesia will be forced to put the brakes on investmen......
  • Russia Mining Report Q2 2015
    Published: 3-Apr-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 90
    BMI View: Russia's mineral production growth will remain solid over the coming years. Coal and gold production will outperform PGM's and iron ore output growth. However, the sector's growth will be hindered by weak global mineral prices and Western sanctions. Furthermore, the country's restrictive regulatory environment will deter foreign investment from entering the sector. We believe Russia's mining sector will experience solid, but not rapid growth over the coming years. Russia has significan......
  • Tanzania Mining Report Q2 2015
    Published: 3-Apr-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 61
    BMI View: Tanzania's mining industry will see further contraction over the coming five years, largely due to weak global gold prices which will discourage production growth. Over the longer term, various miners are looking to invest in the country's nickel, coal, and uranium resources. Despite Tanzania's significant deposits of coal, cobalt, copper, diamonds, gold, nickel, silver and uranium, we forecast the country's mining sector will contract to 2019 on the back of lower average annual gold p......
