Global tin mine production growth will decelerate over 2017-2021 compared to the previous five years, due to declining growth rates in Myanmar, DRC and Indonesia. Despite this, traditionally large producers such as China and Peru will moderately increase their growth rates, thus ensuring absolute numbers will keep on rising in the coming years.
Chile's rigid labour market will pose considerable challenges to copper miners looking to keep costs low and improve margins amid price volatility in 2017. Nonetheless, the country's copper sector will return to growth by 2018 as prices stabilise over the coming years.
Major diversified miners will see improving financials and performance over the coming years as FY2016 marked the start of positive net incomes following years of losses. Nevertheless, miners will remain focused on capital and supply discipline, with debt reduction and efficiency enhancements despite improving commodity prices.
