New Market Research Report: Peru Mining Report Q1 2015

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.

Peru's mining industry value will see average annual growth of 3.4% in 2015-2018, reaching USD21.4bn. Both domestic and international firms will continue to develop projects, presenting promising growth opportunities for miners of a wide array of minerals despite ongoing conflicts with local communities.

Peru's mining sector will see continued development on account of its significant untapped reserves and open investment framework. The Peruvian government estimates current mining investment pipelines through 2020 to total nearly USD57bn, although continued protests by local communities are likely to cause project delays and increase costs. Peru will still remain a significant global producer of several base and precious metals, and we expect continued diversification as miners explore and develop new deposits. Copper projects accounting for the largest proportion of new mine projects and expansions. The sector is dominated by global copper mining majors including Southern Copper (a division of Grupo México), Freeport McMoRan and Glencore Xstrata, which are boosting output by both expanding existing operations and undertaking new investment projects.

President Ollanta Humala will continue pursuing moderate policies, seeking to attract foreign investment while increasing social spending and implementing more accommodative policies towards Peruvian citizens and interest groups opposed to mining development. The tax code remains competitive, particularly in light of Mexican mining royalties imposed at the start of 2014. Peru and Mexico produce many of the same metals, which may give Peru a relative advantage in the coming years, as indicated by miners such as Grupo México and Goldcorp. Moreover, the government in July 2014 reduced environmental regulations surrounding mining projects in an effort to spur investment into the sector at a time of weakening mining exports.
