About This Report


Australia dominates world output of the major mineral sands. In 2012-13, its mineral sands production is expected to be about 450,000 tonnes of rutile, 1.3 million tonnes of ilmenite, 650,000 tonnes of zircon and 230,000 tonnes of leucoxene. The bulk of this production will be exported, mainly to pigment manufacturers, although zircon is primarily sold to producers of refractory bricks (used in metal smelting operations). The largest single export market is China.

The Mineral Sand Mining industry is expected to generate revenue of $1.11 billion in 2012-13 compared with $1.27 billion in 2007-08, resulting in an annualised decline of 2.7% over the past five years.

Firms in this industry mine mineral sands such as rutile, ilmenite, zircon and leucoxene.

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.
