Iron Ore Mining in Australia to 2022 - Production Remains Buoyant Supported by New Projects

Summary

Australia is endowed with around 70 different types of mineral deposits, of which key mineral commodities include coal, iron ore, bauxite, gold, nickel, copper, zinc, lead, molybdenum, rutile, zircon, and uranium. By holding 35.8% of global iron ore reserves, Australia has the world’s largest deposits. Iron ore deposits are mainly found in Western Australia, with South Australia, New South Wales, Queensland, and Tasmania having these in smaller quantities.

Australia’s iron ore production increased by 3.2% in 2017. Production increased from the country’s largest mining companies such as Rio Tinto Plc and BHP. However, due to adverse weather conditions, the country’s production did not grow at expected levels. Over the forecast period, the country’s production of iron ore is expected to post a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1.1% till 2022. This will be supported by various new projects and capacity expansions at existing mines through the forecast period.

On the same time, Australian iron ore exports reached 846.1Mt in 2017 with China being the most important market, followed by Japan and South Korea. Over the forecast period, iron ore exports are expected to grow at CAGR of 0.9% till 2022.
