About This Report


The Chemical and Fertiliser Mineral Mining industry has performed relatively well over the past five years, despite overall revenue contraction. A prodigious increase in potash prices in 2008, caused by an imbalance between demand and supply and accentuated by rising energy prices and government tariffs, hugely inflated industry revenue in 2008-09. Prices have since inevitably dropped back to more sustainable levels due to global economic factors, although they remain significantly higher than pre-surge prices.

This industry covers the mining of natural phosphates, potassium salts, sulphur, barium sulphate and carbonate, borates, magnesium sulphates, earth colours, fluorspar and other minerals valued chiefly as a source of chemicals. Guano mining also falls into this category. The extraction of salt, roasting of iron pyrites and manufacture of synthetic fertilisers and nitrogen compounds are not included in the industry.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
