Published on : Jan 18, 2019

Albany, New York, January 18, 2019: Though being one of the widely distributed metals, merely 49 countries accounting for 150 deposits produce different types of iron ore. China, Australia, Brazil, Russia and India are top 5 largest producers of iron ore in the world. High-grade haematitie and magnetite iron ore deposits are widely scattered in China. Owing to small consumption in Australia, it exports large quantities—Japan being the largest importer of Australian iron. The bulk of minerals is primarily in the Western Australia in Pilbara region, thereby representing 95% of Australian’s iron ore. These excerpts are in line with the report titled, “Global Iron Ore Mining to 2022,” which has been lately incorporated in the ever-expanding repository of Market Research Hub (MRH).

Iron ore form essential steel products which can be processed into different finished products. Steel products have plethora of uses in a range of industries such as automotive, packaging, household appliances and construction among many others. Soaring demand for iron ore from India and China steel industries are expected to drive iron ore mining. Witnessing surge in demand, iron ore producer have planned to set up new mining plants along with expanding their production capacities.

Sea borne iron trade is also estimated to fuel the demand for iron ore mining. However, iron ore mining is high-capital intensive, which requires heavy investment in machinery and equipment needed for mining activities. Moreover, governments in regions levy duties and regulations on mining sector which further inhibit the growth of iron ore mining industry.
