While Namibia holds substantial diamond and uranium reserves among other minerals, the government's potential to enforce policy to extract greater revenue from the sector remains a key downside risk to investment. Overall, we forecast Namibia's mining industry value to grow on average 4.7% y-o-y from an estimated USD1.5bn in 2014 to USD1.9 bn in 2018. This will represent a decline in the mining sector's contribut ion to GDP from 13% in 2014 to 10 % in 2018. On the positive side, we anticipate greater Chinese investment in mine development in the country.

The bulk of exploration and mining in Namibia focuses on diamonds, uranium and base metals such as copper, lead and zinc. A number of major players, including Rio Tinto and De Beers, have exploited the great potential for the exploration and mining of mineral resources. Namdeb is a joint venture between De Beers (50%) and the Namibian government (50%), and is the country's leading diamond producer.

Over the coming years we expect Chinese investment to gather momentum in Namibia's mining sector. China will increasingly venture abroad to seek control of mineral assets to fuel domestic demand. The construction of new nuclear power stations in China will make Namibia a key target for Chinese investment as the Asian giant looks to secure uranium assets. In July 2014, China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) finalized the purchase of a 25% stake in Paladin Energy's Langer Heinrich uranium mine.
