Malaysia Mining Report 2015

BMI View: Malaysia's mining sector is facing into a more modest growth output than the one seen in recentyears. Falling mineral prices have been eating increasingly into the profitability of the country's miners,leading many firms to scale back production as well as exploration and development. That said thecontinued presence of major miners across the gold and tin sub-sectors will ensure that output from bothsegments continues to grow over the forecast period, albeit at a slower rate to that seen in recent years.

We forecast Malaysia's mining industry to reach USD43.25bn by 2019, increasing at a steady clip of 5.0%per annum. Despite significant deposits of untapped minerals and positive reforms by the Malaysiangovernment in recent years, a resource boom is unlikely to catch up with the country anytime soon. Incontrast to the relentless pursuit of volume growth over the past decade, mining firms are focusing on thedevelopment of their core brownfield assets on the back of waning mineral prices and the economicslowdown in China.
