The BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) countries play a dominant role in the global mining industry in terms of reserves, production and consumption. The mining industry in the BRIC countries posted a healthy growth during the review period and the trend is expected to continue over the forecast period. Iron ore is noted as the leading mineral across all the BRIC countries with China emerging as the leading consumer and producer of the mineral in the world. As well as iron ore, China is also the world’s largest producer of manganese, salt and gypsum. In Brazil, iron ore accounts for 75% of the country’s total mining exports and China represents the largest importer, accounting for 45% of Brazilian iron ore exports. This over dependence on China could create serious concerns for Brazilian iron ore producers. Brazil is a key producer of iron ore, bauxite, kaolin and phosphate globally while Russia is the largest producer of nickel and diamonds. India is one of the principal producers of coal, iron ore, bauxite, limestone and barites.

- In volume terms, total mineral production in Brazil increased at a CAGR of 3.63% during the review period 2007-2011. The growth of key end-user markets such as the steel industry, construction, specialty paper, fertilizers, manufacturing and power is expected to continue to drive the demand for minerals between 2012 and 2016. Minerals production is projected to grow at a CAGR of 13.32% over the period 2012-2016.
- High spending on infrastructure construction, especially in China, drove the recovery of the Russian mining industry in 2010, and the Russian government announced plans to increase state expenditure for mineral resource exploration to US$23 billion by 2020. Russian mineral production increased by 5.9% in 2011 over the previous year. The growth was primarily driven by rising domestic demand from end-user markets. The mining industry is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.35% over the forecast period, to reach 699.4 million tons in 2016.
- In terms of volume, India’s mineral production grew at a CAGR of 4.88% during the period 2007-2011 and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 7.90% during the period 2012-2016.
- In 2011, the fuel mineral category dominated the Chinese mining industry, accounting for almost a 75.9% share of total production.
