Canada Mining Report Q3 2016 - New Report Available

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed May 11 2016

Canada's mining sector will continue to contract through 2017, due to structurally lower mineral prices. The country will remain a major mining industry in the Americas, returning to value growth beyond 2017 as prices stabilise and reinvigorate project investment.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends

Canada, a leading country in the mineral extractive industry, will continue to see a decline in mining industry value growth over the next few years due to weak prices. We forecast Canada's mining industry value to contract by 10.5% in 2016 and 2.1% in 2017, returning to growth as prices stabilise and averaging 3.6% annual growth over 2018-2020.

Key themes of slow growth, delayed projects, and cost-cutting efforts will persist across the country's mining sector. Canada's nickel sector will be the sector's production growth bright spot, averaging 4.2% y-o-y growth over 2016-2020. Nickel's relative outperformance will be supported by a stronger recovery in prices.

Canada's gold sector will continue to see consolidation and divestment among junior miners due to persistently weak gold prices. The sector will experience muted growth, as the weak price environment delays projects. We forecast the country's gold output to edge higher, from 4.9 million ounces (moz) in 2016 to 5.2moz by 2020, averaging 1.6% annual growth.

The country's mining sector will be hurt by slowing demand growth in Asia, with iron ore exports to China falling in 2015. On the other hand, the country's refined metal exports will fare better, supported by the Indonesian ban on nickel ore exports and a tightening zinc market. For instance, both refined nickel and zinc exports increased in 2015.
