Base Metals 2014: A review of Africa's base metals sector Base Metals 2014: A review of Africa's base metals sector Has PDF
Published: 10 Dec 14
In the three months ended September 2014, economic growth in China – the world’s biggest consumer of base metals and a significant producer of some base metals – decelerated to its slowest pace since the 2008/9 global economic crisis. Although manufacturing output had increased in the quarter, activity in the property sector slowed down. Some analysts are expecting full-year growth to be below the targeted 7.5%, with China’s slowing economic growth continuing to be a worrying factor in terms of the outlook for demand for base and other metals. Nonetheless, ratings agency Moody’s expects the base metals industry to be stable over the next 12 to 18 months, explaining that this does not imply that conditions will improve meaningfully in 2015, but that conditions are unlikely to deteriorate further up to early to mid-2016. In light of these developments, Creamer Media’s Base Metals 2014 Report examines the global base metals market, with a particular focus on supply and demand, and on the production of copper, zinc, nickel and lead, as well as on selected base metals operations and projects in Africa.

Coal 2014: A review of South Africa's coal sector Coal 2014: A review of South Africa's coal sector Has PDF
Published: 21 Nov 14
South Africa’s coal mining industry earned the country R101.3-billion in 2013, with 51.1% comprising export revenue and 48.9% local sales, mostly to State-owned utility Eskom’s coal-fired power stations, which generate more than 90% of the country’s electricity. The coal mining sector’s 2014 revenue is forecast to slide to R99.5-billion or less as coal prices decline, languishing below $70/t in August 2014 – a four-year low. Creamer Media’s Coal 2014 report examines South Africa’s coal industry as regards the business environment, the key participants in the sector, local demand, export sales and coal logistics, projects being undertaken by the large and smaller participants in the market, as well as various issues affecting the sector such as industrial action, skills shortages, health and safety, and environmental considerations.

Diamonds 2014: A review of Southern Africa's diamond sector Diamonds 2014: A review of Southern Africa's diamond sector Has PDF
Published: 07 Nov 14
In line with other luxury products, the diamond industry was severely affected by the global recession of 2008/9 and although prices quickly recovered, the industry was in for a rollercoaster ride over the following years, as 2011’s European sovereign crisis threatened to erase gains. However, diamond prices have since returned to their prerecession levels. It is estimated that diamond prices have gained between 5% and 10% in 2014 and are expected to rise further in 2015. The diamond market is expected to be in balance in the medium term, but analysts are warning that a supply cliff is looming. This report discusses the world diamond market, with a particular emphasis on diamond-mining activities taking place in Southern Africa over the past 12 months, and provides information on key companies, operations and projects.
