The mining industry in Russia recovered greatly after the global economic meltdown and is expected to experience steady, but slow growth in the coming years. The iron and steel segment was the most lucrative segment of the industry, while the precious metals and minerals segment contributed revenues of over $16 billion in 2010. Given the centrality of scale economies within the metals and mining industry, there is a continuing tendency towards concentration in the Russian mining industry.
Russia is the largest producer of palladium and nickel in the world but the country's share of the global output is expected to fall as nickel output picks up in Canada, and palladium output increased in South Africa.
Russia is also one of the largest producers of platinum and the growth in platinum production in Russia is expected to be driven by Norilsk Nickel's expanded operations in the country. Norilsk Nickel, Severstal, Amur Minerals, are some of the leading players in the industry, and as these companies expand their operations and new mines become operational in the coming years, the Russian mining industry is looking at a steady level of growth till 2015.
