Research and Markets: Precious Metals Mining in Botswana to 2020 - A Focus on the Diamond Industry

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/mpj2t8/precious_metals) has announced the addition of the "Precious Metals Mining in Botswana to 2020 - a Focus on the Diamond Industry" report to their offering.

The 'Precious Metals Mining in Botswana to 2020 - a Focus on the Diamond Industry' report comprehensively covers the country's historical and forecast data on diamond production, reserves and exports to 2020. The report also includes drivers and restraints affecting the industry, profiles of major diamond mining companies, and information on the major active projects and regulations governing the industry.

The country's rough diamond production is expected to reach 25.3 million carats by 2014 and 32.2 million carats in 2020. In 2009, the county's diamond industry declined sharply due to the global economic crisis, emphasizing the country's reliance on export demand, leading to a fall in rough diamond production. Botswana's rough diamonds are mostly exported to the US, Europe and Japan. These three destinations made up 84.7% of the country's total exports in 2012.

Key Highlights

  • Botswana is the world's largest producer of diamonds by value, with diamonds accounting for 81% of total minerals contribution to country's GDP and 98% of mineral revenue payable to the government in 2013.
  • The country's rough diamond production is estimated to reach 25.3 million carats by 2014 and 32.2 million carats in 2020.
