2014-04-25 10:44:03 - Iron Ore Mining in China - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
For the five years to 2013, revenue for the China Iron Ore Mining market has been growing 20.6% per year on average. However, growth has been volatile year on year. After sharp rises in 2010 and 2011, the price of iron ore dropped significantly in 2012 due to a steel oversupply and the economic cooldown in China.
As a result, industry revenue growth slowed considerably in 2012. The iron ore price is not expected to rebound strongly in 2013; therefore, revenue for the year is expected to increase by just 11.4% to $153.4 billion. There are over 4,200 enterprises operating in the industry, with total employment of 646,000 and total output of iron ore at an expected 1.59 billion tons in
China covers about half of its domestic demand with imported iron. The slowdown in China´s economy, and the world economy as a whole, resulted in significant declines in iron ore demand and product price in 2009. Despite a significant increase in the volume of imported iron ore, the import value decreased by 14.9% in 2009. With the iron price rebounding sharply in the next two years, imports nearly doubled from $61.1 billion in 2009 to $117.2 billion in 2011.
Industry performance is expected to be much smoother in the future compared with the turbulent past decade. China will maintain a rapid pace of industrialization and urbanization, which will stimulate demand for steel products and in turn for iron ore. As a result, industry revenue is forecast to grow 8.1% annually on average over the next five years to $226.4 billion in 2018.
Competing imports will continue to account for a large proportion of domestic demand due to limitations of domestic iron ore supplies and the abolishment of import tariffs on imported iron ore. The annualized growth rate of imports is forecast at 9.1% in the next five years, though imports as a share of domestic demand are forecast to stay stable.
