Philippines Mining Report 2016

Philippines Mining Report 2016

BMI View: Mining output in the Philippines will continue to be severely affected by softening of Chinesedemand for key mined metals, including nickel, copper and gold. Weakness in global prices for theseminerals will deter investment in Philippines mining in the short-term; however, we maintain that theindustry is well positioned for longer term growth as foreign miners look to take advantage of the country'ssizeable and relatively untapped deposits, as well as low operating costs.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends

We have revised our production forecasts for Philippines metals production downwards in reflection of asharper than expected fall in price levels for a number of commodities and the subsequent scaling back ofdomestic output. Philippines nickel production fell by more than 24% during the first 10 months of 2015,according to Bloomberg data, due to a collapse in Chinese demand, and we expect output to contract byabout 6% in 2016.
