Australia Mining Report Q2 2016

Australia Mining Report Q2 2016

BMI View: Nickel and bauxite will emerge as the Australian mining industry's production growth brightspots during 2016-2020. Coal and gold output growth will slow more markedly due to continued priceweakness.

Although Australia will remain one of the world's largest mineral producers, growth will slow across theboard due to continued mineral price weakness. The Australian mining sector will be particularly affectedby China's economic slowdown, as the country accounts for almost 80.0% of the country's iron ore exports.

We expect Australia's mining industry value to fall to USD86bn in 2016, down from USD96bn in 2015. Weforecast Australia's mining industry value growth to pick up again by 2018, reaching USD94bn in 2020.

Iron ore, for example, which accounts for 33.5% of the country's mining industry value, will increase itsshare to 36.3% of industry value by 2020 and drive industry growth.
