Our Industry Offerings

Addressing Major Trends

Robust economic growth in emerging markets, led by China and India, continues to trigger strong demand. Supply is expected to remain tight even as the industry responds by spending hundreds of billions of dollars on new capital projects. These investments, often in remote and unfamiliar regions, are becoming increasingly risky and complex, putting a premium on continued industry consolidation.

Mergers and acquisitions will be driven by lower industry margins as developed economies struggle to grow and commodity prices fall from historic highs. Nevertheless, commodity prices are expected to remain at levels that continue to make investment in new supply attractive. Much of the activity will be focused on emerging markets, bringing a host of fresh opportunities and challenges. In addition, many governments in developed and emerging countries are weighing mining industry reforms in a bid to address environmental issues, as well as raise more revenues from taxation and royalties. Corporate transparency and social responsibility will be paramount as scrutiny increases from governments, customers, shareholders and other stakeholders.
