[China's three finalists] A look at the world's 16 largest mining companies

Release time:2024-05-23

51

In 2022, due to the downturn of the world economy, increasing inflation, the recurrence of the new coronavirus epidemic, geopolitical deterioration and resource nationalism, the international minerals market is in a state of dramatic turbulence, with most minerals' prices going up and then down, a situation similar to that of 2012, when the global mining industry reached a stage of peaking.

In order to ensure the needs of the development of strategic industries such as electric vehicles, the West has used subsidies and other policies to promote the exploration and development of domestic mineral resources, while at the same time establishing the International Mineral Resources Security Partnership (IMRSP) and prohibiting foreign state-owned enterprises from participating in the development of key minerals in their own countries, but different policy orientations in different regions, and the market is not evenly distributed. In 2023, the global mining industry will face the challenges of the world economic downturn, geopolitical and ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) risks.
