Our world is expanding: the dragons of Asia have been rising from the East, while the emerging economies of the South have become more vocal. Previously impoverished people- who but 20 years ago were living in absolute squalor,- are now seeing their children living in newly built high-rise buildings, driving to work in modern cars, working on the latest computers and living the contemporary life. Greater opportunities for people in the cities have seen the rapid migration (and expansion) of the urban landscape: the subsistence lifestyle has lost substance in the modern world. The planet is becoming more developed, all of which requires more buildings, more transport, more machines, more technology and more steel. But none of this can happen without iron ore.

The steel-making ambitions of China and India will see global crude steel production increase 3.3% CAGR over the next twenty years, resulting in a 50% increase (3.5bn tonnes) in iron ore demand by 2030. With very low quality iron and steel ambitions far greater than its supply, China once again looks to the rest of the world for their iron ore needs.
