Peru is a key player in the mining industry. It ranks 7th in the list of 10 leading mineral-producing nations. The investment possibilities in Peru are huge since natural resources are abundant, and the recent demand has resulted in a significant boost to the market, catalyzed by the government tax and business policies. In 2015, Peru became the 3rd largest producer of copper and zinc in the world. Peru is also a major producer of gold and silver, among other minerals. An increase in the demand for mining commodities has led to a rapid development of mining exploration and similar production activities in Peru. International investors play the most important role in the mining industry of Peru. Peru is an active member of the Andean community, Asian-Pacific Economic Co-operation Forum and World Trade Organization.
The mining market in Peru is driven by the fact that it has a stable and an attractive managing environment for the FDI. The government no longer has exclusive control over exploration, mining, smelting, and refining of metals and fuel minerals. The government acts as a promoter and a guardian for the industry. Since investments in Peru have been mostly driven by the private sector in the recent years, the country has been displaying a growing commitment to become an ideal place for businesses.
The Peru mining market faces certain restraints, such as dependency on China for its copper exports and an increase in conflict and violence around the mining operations. China recently saw a slowdown in the manufacturing industry, which resulted in a slowdown in the copper market as well. The presence of conflicts and violence dates back to early 1990s.
The mining operations are mainly confined to the Andean ranges, where the local population has been protesting against such mining operations. They claim that these operations are causing unchecked water and air pollution. They also argue that the lives of the people have not changed despite the substantial profits reaped by the mining companies. Around 70% of the Peru-Andean population lives in poverty. Peru even declared a 30 Day State of Emergency on 28th September 2015 in the Apurimac region, after four protesters were killed during the anti-mining protests.
The report has been segmented based various factors. The mining business segment is divided into government policies and taxation policies in Peru. This segmentation could help prospective market players understand the business dynamics in Peru. The report is further segmented into the export and import, insights of the equipment market, profiles of the top mining firms in Peru and the different mines that are being run by these companies.
In 2015, the government took a big step to curb illegal gold mining in Peru. They destroyed an entire village that supported illegal gold mining in the Amazon River gold rush. These illegal mining operations poisoned about 60,000 hectares of the rain forests and caused large-scale pollution, primarily due to the release of mercury from the mines. The government is succeeding in demolishing these illegal mining operations and carving the pathway toward a stable mining Industry.
