DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/kmzv4f/analyzing_the) has announced the addition of the "Analyzing the Mining Industry in Brazil" report to their offering.
This report is focused on the Brazilian Mining Industry through a look at the key statistics, volume/value analysis with the industry being segmented. In order to explore the competition in the industry, the report lists and analyzes the major players including Companhia Brasileira de Alumínio, Albrás, etc. We also include an analysis of the major mines in Brazil.
The mining industry in Brazil is set for growth in the coming times as untapped natural resources draw significant investments and increase production of key minerals. Iron ore will remain the primary driver of the Brazilian mining sector, while base metals and gold will provide additional opportunities for sector expansion. Furthermore, Chinese demand for Brazilian resources has encouraged mining companies such as Vale to increase efficiency by focusing on vertical integration strategies across processing, freight transport and shipping.
Bauxite, gold, manganese, among other primary mineral products contribute positively to mineral export revenues. The devaluation of the Brazilian Real (as much as 17%) against the US Dollar boosted the country's mineral export earnings, with the iron ore market benefiting the most. Iron ore exports account for 6% of the country's total export revenues.
Brazil is also a major producer of several other key commodities such as gold, coal and phosphates. Mining and mineral products provided almost 2% to Brazil's GDP. Iron ore is the most important of Brazil's mineral exports, generating annual revenue of around $2 billion. Brazil is also the world's largest exporter of niobium, tin, lithium, tantalum and gemstones. Bauxite, gold, manganese, among other primary mineral products also contribute positively to mineral export revenues. A wide range of geological environments are encountered in the country, with nearly half of the country covered by younger sedimentary successions, which cover extensive Precambrian terrains, some of which is Archaean in age.
