Mining Industry Analysis Report Overview

During the second quarter of 2023, the commodities market experienced significant fluctuations. In April, concerns over China’s construction data impacted iron ore and coking coal prices, while gold increased to a 52-week high due to banking sector worries. May 2023 saw declines in thermal coal, iron ore, and coking coal prices, attributed to lower power demand and China’s subdued construction sector. Base metal prices also dropped due to reduced industrial demand. In June, the thermal coal price continued to decline, while iron ore began a recovery. The threat of sustained high-interest rates caused a dip in the gold price despite reaching a three-year high earlier.

The mining industry research report provides a quarterly mining industry update, assessing the latest commodity trends by tracking commodity prices and global and company production for coal, iron ore, gold, and copper. Based on projects that advanced this recent quarter, analysis is provided on project momentum.

In addition, the report also provides a detailed analysis of development projects in the mining industry, segregated by country, commodity, and company and development capital expenditure for leading miners. The report also analyses the impact of coronavirus on the global mining industry, digitization, and ESG in mining. It further includes analyses of the end-use sectors such as construction, automotive, electric vehicles, crude steel, and coal-fired electricity generation.

Mining Market Drivers

The key industries driving the demand in the mining market are construction, EVs, crude steel production, and coal-fired power generation. The construction industry growth is expected to remain sluggish in 2023; including China. The gloomy outlook reflects the weak economic backdrop, and additional challenges specific to the global construction industry, notably high construction material costs and labor shortages. However, in 2023, coal-fired power generation in China is expected to grow by 2027 backed by the new capacity additions. Meanwhile, coal-fired power generation in India is also forecast to increase significantly.

Mining Market Segmentation by Commodities

The key commodities in the mining market are gold, silver, platinum, iron ore, copper, nickel, lead, zinc, tin, and aluminum among others. After decreasing in 2022, global iron ore production is expected to recover in 2023. In addition, global copper mine production is expected to increase in 2023, with output from the DRC, Peru, and Chile crucial to this increase. Collective production from these countries is expected to expand to more than 10Mt in 2023. In the DRC, the output will increase due to higher production at the Kamoa-Kakula copper complex and Mutanda mine.

Business Intelligence & Marketing Manager, SAL Heavy Lift

“COVID-19 has caused significant interference to our business and the COVID-19 intelligence from GlobalData has helped us reach better decisions around strategy. These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business.”

Market Analyst & Management, Liebherr-Werk

Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.

Head of Key Accounts, Saab AB

Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.

Marketing Intelligence Manager, Portugal Foods

Our experience with GlobalData has been very good, from the platform itself to the people. I find that the analysts and the account team have a high level of customer focus and responsiveness and therefore I can always rely on. The platform is more holistic than other providers. It is convenient and almost like a one stop shop. The pricing suite is highly competitive and value for our organisation.

I like reports that inform new segments such as the analysis on generation Z, millennials, the impact of COVID 19 to our banking customers and their new channel habits. Secondly the specialist insight on affluent sector significantly increases our understanding about this group of customers. The combination of those give us depth and breadth of the evolving market.

I’m in the business of answering and helping people make decisions so with the intelligence center I can do that, effectively and efficiently. I can share quickly key insights that answer and satisfy our country stakeholders by giving them many quality studies and primary research about competitive landscape beyond the outlook of our bank. It helps me be seen as an advisory partner and that makes a big difference. A big benefit of our subscription is that no one holds the whole data and because it allows so many people, so many different parts of our organisation have access, it enables all teams to have the same level of knowledge and decision support.

Head of Customer Insight and Research, Standard Chartered

“I know that I can always rely on Globaldata’s work when I’m searching for the right consumer and market insights. I use Globaldata insights to understand the changing market & consumer landscape and help create better taste & wellbeing solutions for our customers in food, beverage and healthcare industries.

Globaldata has the right data and the reports are of very high quality compared to your competitors. Globaldata not only has overall market sizes & consumer insights on food & beverages but also provides insights at the ingredient & flavour level. That is key for B2B companies like Givaudan. This way we understand our customers’ business and also gain insight to our unique industry”

Head of Consumer Sensory Insights, Givaudan

GlobalData provides a great range of information and reports on various sectors that is highly relevant, timely, easy to access and utilise.  The reports and data dashboards help engagement with clients; they provide valuable industry and market insights that can enrich client conversations and can help in the shaping of value propositions. Moreover, using GlobalData products has helped increase my knowledge of the finance sector, the players within it, and the general threats and opportunities.

I find the consumer surveys that are carried out to be extremely beneficial and not something I have seen anywhere else. They provided an insightful view of why and which consumers take (or don’t) particular financial products. This can help shape conversations with clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions for their business.

One of the challenges I have found is that data in the payments space is often piecemeal. With GD all of the data I need is in one place, but it also comes with additional market reports that provide useful extra context and information. Having the ability to set-up alerts on relevant movements in the industry, be it competitors or customers, and have them emailed directly to me, ensures I get early sight of industry activity and don’t have to search for news.
