Timetric's 'Global Manganese Mining to 2020' report comprehensively covers global reserves of manganese, historical and forecast data on global manganese ore production, and production by country and trade. The report also includes demand drivers affecting the global manganese mining industry, profiles of major manganese producing companies and information on the major active, exploration and development projects by region.
As the global economic recovery strengthened in 2014, the production of crude steel grew by 1.2% to reach 1.66 billion tonnes in 2014. This led to an increase in global production of manganese ore, which increased from 50.7Mt in 2012 to an estimated 59.2Mt in 2014 according to Timetric. In 2013, China was the largest producer of manganese ore at 23Mt, followed by South Africa (11.02Mt), Australia (7.26Mt), Gabon (4.3Mt), Brazil (2.44Mt) and India (2.05Mt). Of the rest, Ghana accounted for 1.91Mt and Ukraine 1.35Mt.
The report provides information on the global manganese mining industry together with the key demand drivers affecting the industry. It also provides information about reserves, historic and forecast production and production by country, major exporting and importing countries, competitive landscape and major active, exploration and development projects.

Gain an understanding of the global manganese mining industry, the relevant demand drivers , reserves, historic and forecast production, major exporting and importing countries, active, exploration and development projects and the competitive landscape.Key Highlights
Global manganese reserves measured 570 million tonnes (Mt) as of January 2015, with South Africa accounting for 150Mt, followed by Ukraine (140Mt), Australia (97Mt), Brazil (54Mt), India (52Mt), China (44Mt) and Gabon (24Mt).
The global manganese industry will be impacted by the interplay of related factors such as the growth and development of the global steel industry and investments in projects and ports.
The estimated increase in manganese ore production in 2014 was due to the additional annual manganese ore production capacity of 5Mt resulting from mine expansions and startups, 57% of which were in South Africa. In 2013, production increased by 8.9% over 2012, driven by increased demand from emerging economies, following a contraction in 2012.
