An Insight Of The Mining Industry

The mining industry is a huge space and it is challenging to give an insight of the complete industry. Thus, we have divided the industry insight into two distinct divisions, viz., Global Mining Industry and Indian Mining Industry.

Global Mining Industry

Back in 2020, the Asia-Pacific had accounted for 71% of the global mining industry which is followed by North America by 9%. The mining industry comprises several organizations, sole dealers and the partnerships that harvest commodities, rocks and various other useful resources such as non-ferrous and ferrous metals, gravel, sand, coal and more from the Earth’s crust. The leading companies in the mining market are – BHP Billiton Ltd, Glencore Plc, Vale SA, Rio Tinto Group, and CRH Plc.

The global commodity mineral production in the year 2020 had been 10.2 billion tons with two largest minerals mined worldwide, viz., coal and iron accounting for 96% of the total production. Silver is the most mined precious metal that accounts for 86% of the total precious metal mined and it is found close to the Zinc deposits as compared to gold that is mostly mined near the copper mines.


The Indian Mining Industry

The contribution of GDP in the mining and the quarrying sector in terms of real and nominal GDP has nose-dipped over the last decade. Considering the nominal GDP, the share of mining and quarrying has simultaneously declined from 2.13% in 2015-16 to 1.75% by 2019-20. However, the government is more focussed on raising the share from 1.75% t0 2.50%, as per The Hindu, Financial Express, and India Today. The timeline for the raise to 2.50% commitment is still unclear while it is roughly stated as per assumption that the timeline is possibly 2024-2025, in line with the 2024-2025 vision of the government to become a $5 trillion economy.

Considering the worldwide comparison of the mining shares, for example, the Australian mining sector has accounted for 11.1% of the country’s nominal gross value added for 2019 and 2020. In South Africa, the mining sector has accounted for 7.2% of the country’s 2019 GDP, as stated by the Australian Bureau of Statistics and the Statistics of South Africa. However, these figures reflect the larger mining sector contribution in these two economies. 


What Are The Key Trends In The Mining Industry?

Below are the two perspectives of trends currently in position in the mining industry – demand side drivers and supply side drivers. Additionally, there are macroeconomic trends and developments in India. 

Demand Side Drivers

The following are the Global Macroeconomic Trends and Developments that are related to the copper and gold mining industries:

  • Increasing global shift towards renewables for driving demand. 
  • The U.S. Electric Vehicle (EV) policies drive copper demand.
  • The South African gold mining industry is benefitting from the safe haven demand and the higher metal prices.

Supply Side Drivers

  • The production shortages drive the long term gold price rise as well as the near term copper price rise.
  • The declining ore grades. 
  • The extension of the decline in Chilean Copper production in the first quarter of 2021.
  • The proposed royalty on the Chile lithium and copper sale.

Macroeconomic Trends And Developments In India

  • Indian Mining Structural Reforms 2021 
  • Opening Up for Commercial Coal Mining 
  • Targeted Tripling of Gold Production

What Are The Government Spending Plans?

Currently, the government is aiming to spend its funds in three primary ways such as:

  • $1.5 Trillion (₹111 Lakh Crore) under National Infrastructure Pipeline 
  • Target of Raising Public Healthcare Spending Share to 2.5% of GDP 
  • $26.9 Billion (₹1.97 Lakh Crore) on Production-Linked Incentive (PLI) Schemes

An Insight Of The Global Mineral Processing Industry

The global screening, crushing and the mineral processing equipment market size had been estimated at $20 billion back in 2020. The market had been flourishing at a CAGR of around 7% until 2019. Owing to the coronavirus pandemic, the overall demand has declined in 2020. The industry is now likely to recover in 2022 and has been forecasted to reach $36.9 billion by 2030 that will be growing at a CAGR of 6.3%.


Overview: Global Mining CapEx

The CapEx spending for the metal ores like gold, copper, iron ore, nickel, coal, zinc and others has been estimated to be $85 billion during 2019. The CapEx spending of gold and copper had been $50 to $55 billion that has accounted for over 60% of the global mining CapEx spending. However, copper has individually accounted for $30-35 billion while gold has reported spending of $25-25 billion. In comparison to all of these, iron ore mining is a more mature industry where the CapEx spending has considerably reduced over the last 4-5 years. Now, the iron ore industry is further impacted through the scrap recycling that has been getting hindered in the global market. 

At the same time, coal is also a mature industry and it has been seen that the countries are cutting down the coal consumption specifically in the power sectors. The focus has now shifted to the consumption of clean fuel like nuclear and renewable resources. As zinc and nickel are rare metals, their CapEx spending had been low, as per the (CAPEX S&P Global).

Overview: Global Copper Mining Industry

The copper reserves of the world have been estimated to be 870 million tons of the copper content. Chile possesses the highest share that accounts for around 23% of the global assets which is led by Peru and Australia bearing 10% each. While Russia stands at 7%, Mexico and the United states stand at 6% each. Last but not the least, China and Indonesia are at 30% each.

If any company wants to compete with Tega, it has to have a lump sum investment that most of the companies in the field are not ready to make.
