Canada Metals Report 2015

Canada Metals Report 2015

BMI View: The Canadian metals sector will be supported in the years ahead by both an eventual recoveryin domestic fixed asset investment and continued demand from US and Mexico. In particular, increasingmanufacturing and industrial activity in the latter two countries should help drive demand for metal inputs.

Continued weakening of the Canadian dollar against the US dollar should also support exports.Stronger economic growth in both the US and Mexico over 2015, combined with a weaker Canadian dollar(CAD) in the coming quarters, will support growth in the Canadian metals sector to 2019. Indeed, weexpect both the US and Mexico will experience positive trends in real GDP growth in the coming years,with automotive and general manufacturing activity picking up. Since both countries import significantquantities of refined metal from Canada, they will help underpin metal production growth in the yearsahead.
