Mining Industry Overview
China's enormous production and consumer demands are making
the nation the world's largest consumer of most minerals and
metals. China is rapidly becoming a new center of economic
power, greatly influencing the global economy.
China is not only the world's biggest mineral producer, but
also a significant consumer and trader. It has already become
the world's largest consumer of copper and iron ore, consuming
3.5 million tonnes of copper in 2005 and 620 million tonnes
of iron ore in 2004. From Jan-Nov of 2005, China's accumulated
import of iron ore reached 284 million tons. Meanwhile, China
is the second largest consumer of aluminum and nickel. During
2005, China's apparent consumption of primary aluminum was
Perhaps one of the biggest challenges facing China in the
future will be its own ability to meet the country's demands
for mineral resources. In order to meet the country's needs
for resources, we will see three major trends emerging from
1) A concerted effort among Chinese companies and government
organizations to expand and develop the country's geological
surveying and extraction techniques in order to boost domestic
mineral and metal production.
2) Opening of the mining industry for Sino Foreign JV mining
projects, particularly with experienced foreign mining companies.
3) Increasingly more Chinese companies looking to overseas
markets to invest in or acquire companies or projects that
will help secure China's mineral and metal demands.Over the
next five years, we will see a China more focused than ever
before on developing strategic cooperation opportunities with
the international mining community, both at home and abroad.We
believe these trends will drive all aspects of the mining
and commodities markets and will mean changes, challenges
and opportunities for Chinese and foreign firms.
