- How intense is competition?
The global mining and metals sector is in the midst of the “super correction” to the super-cycle, with an extended period of lower and volatile commodity prices, resulting in unprecedented impacts on earnings, balance sheets and investor perceptions of the sector. As a result, mining and metals companies remain focused on margin, cash flow and capital returns. With risk-averse capital markets, most mining and metals companies remain focused on the short-term — cost-cutting and maximizing current returns to shareholders — and risk limiting future growth prospects. Adding to the threat, new competition is emerging in the form of private capital investors and commodity traders.
- What are the main markets?
Industrialising country economies, in particular, are major determinants of the industry. Over the last decade, industrialisation and urbanisation in emerging countries has underpinned strong consumption of commodities. Demand typically comes on the back of strong economic growth, as demonstrated so well by China over the last few years. As its GDP has increased, so to had its hunger for mined products.
