NEXT 2016 EDITION TO BE PUBLISHED NOV 2016  

Lower commodity prices have imposed considerable constraints and consolidation within the mining industry. While a price recovery has begun, the fundamentals for each commodity are very different. The key challenges for contractors and suppliers to the mining industry is to understand these differences, identify which commodities and regions are best placed for recovery, and be prepared for opportunities as they emerge through the next stage of the commodities cycle.

Mining in Australia is the only source of consistent market information and forecasts for mineral commodity markets and activities undertaken at each stage of the mine life cycle (from exploration, to investment/construction, to mining operations/contract mining and asset maintenance).

Commodities include: oil and gas, coal, iron ore, copper, gold, silver-lead-zinc, mineral sands, other metal ores (nickel, uranium and bauxite), and other mining (construction materials quarrying, diamonds and salt).

MINING IN AUSTRALIA 2016 – 2031 REPORT VOLUMES:

Executive Summary

A powerful and concise overview of the entire mining sector, covering market size, composition and outlook by commodity for all activities in the mine life cycle, from exploration through to investment, production and maintenance. Available to full report subscribers only.

1. Global Commodity Market Overview
We cover the state of play and outlook for world economic growth by region and implications for commodities demand, along with developments in supply. Historical data and forecasts for commodity prices - in $US and $A - are provided. 

2. 
Mining Exploration in Australia
Historical data and forecasts for mining, oil and gas exploration, by mineral and state, along with a written rationale of the key drivers and the outlook.

3. Mining Investment/Construction in Australia
Historical data and thoroughly researched ‘bottom up’ forecasts for fixed capital investment by mineral commodity, split into buildings and structures v plant and equipment, based on our extensive major project lists and macroeconomic outlook. Supplemented with individual commodity commentaries and detailed Mining Major Project Lists (refer below for detail).

4. & 5. 
Mining Operations and Contracting in Australia
These volumes contain data and forecasts by commodity for mining activities undertaken by both contractors and owner operators, including total production volumes by state, and the value of contract mining, by mineral commodity. This is a unique volume servicing the contract mining industry in Australia. Supplemented with Contract Mining Database (refer below for detail).

6. Mining Maintenance in Australia
This volume contains data, forecasts and commentary on maintenance activities in the mining sector, by mineral commodity, by who performs the work (in-house v contractor splits), by type of contract and activity. We will be utilising results from our 'Deep Dive' interview survey with mining companies (GM's, Middle Managers, Superintendents) on their Mining Contract Maintenance requirements across iron ore, coal and oil and gas. The research aimed to better understand the outlook for maintenance spend,  breakdown by type of asset, type of maintenance activity, when major contracts are likely to be coming up, how maintenance contracts are being engaged/bundled and what panels to be on - to be more likely to win future work.

This report compiles comprehensive historical data and annual forecasts for the next five years (to 2021) followed by two five-year averages (to 2031) covering mining-related activity, broken down:

  • By type of activity:
    - investment (including construction, plant and equipment, and exploration)
    - mining operations (including production and value of contract mining)
    - maintenance (including owner and contractor splits)
  • By mineral commodity
  • By in-house/owner-operator versus contract work

These forecasts derive from our long established and respected forecasting methodologies.

Commentary on Market Developments and Outlook
The forecasts are backed up by extensive written rationale covering all of the major influences on levels of activity, in each activity category and mineral sector.

Mining Major Project Lists
Mining projects over $100m by sponsor, mine type, status, capacity, expected commencement, project size, and EC work - year by year for the next 5 years.

Contract Mining Database
Searchable database by contractor, mine type, resource, type of service, value, start/end date.
