Report Published: "Kazakhstan Mining Report Q1 2015"

We expect consistent growth in Kazakhstan's mining industry through 2018, averaging 2.5% on average per ann um and reaching a value of USD37.6 bn. Growth will be derived from increasing output of both industrial and precious metals, including coal, copper, gold and iron ore, which together account for the bulk of the value of Kazakhstan's mining industry. We forecast copper output to grow the fastest in percentage terms through to 2018.

Kazakhstan has one of the richest mineral reserves in the world, and is in the top ten in size for a number of major minerals. It has the potential to overtake current major mineral producers but needs substantial investment from foreign companies which have the necessary capital and technology to develop its deposits. Poor infrastructure remains one of the main obstacles for the long-term growth of Kazakhstan's mining sector. While the country boasts adequate infrastructure in urban regions, many new and planned projects are far from the main cities or transport routes, with poor access to roads and power sources.

Despite a myriad of challenges, we expect both domestic and foreign players to be lured by the country's mineral wealth and improving business environment, enabling consistent industry growth. According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), total fixed capital investment in Kazakhstan's mining sector totalled USD10.9bn in 2011, while total investment in the metallurgy sector came to USD1.7bn. Moreover, foreign direct investment (FDI) into the country's mining sector totalled USD1.4bn in 2011, while FDI into the non-ferrous and ferrous metallurgy sectors totalled USD 1.5bn and USD1.0bn respectively.
