– The rapid change in commodity prices due to the ongoing war between Russiaand Ukraine is expected to positively impact the mining market during the forecast period. Russia and Ukraine are global producers of metals such as nickel, copper and iron, and they are also involved in other essential raw materials such as neon, palladium and platinum. The sanctions from countries across the globe on the Russian invasion, have contributed to the surge in prices of these metals. For instance, the trading price of palladium was recorded at $2,700on February 25th 2022, which was 80% higher than the price in December 2021. Therefore, rapid growth in commodity prices due to the Russia-Ukraine war is expected to boost the mining market during the forecast period.
The global mining market size is expected to grow from $1.84 trillion in 2021 to $2.06 trillion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.0%. Mining market growth is expected to continue at a CAGR of 12.9%, reaching $3.36 trillion by 2026.
Mining Market Segments
The mining market is segmented by type into mining support activities, general minerals, stones, copper, nickel, lead, and zinc, metal ore, and coal, lignite, and anthracite.
