About This Report


Australia dominates world output of the major mineral sands due to large natural reserves and extensive mining sites. Mining volumes and prices of the various mineral sand products have generally increased in the past five years. Exports are expected to account for almost half of total production and are sold mainly to pigment manufacturers, although zircon is primarily sold to producers of refractory bricks (used in metal smelting operations). The largest export market is China.

The Mineral Sand Mining industry is expected to generate revenue of $2.5 billion in 2014-15, up from $1.8 billion in 2009-10, resulting in an annualised increase of 5.9% over the past five years.

Firms in the industry are primarily engaged in mining mineral sands such as rutile, ilmenite, and leucoxene, which contain titanium. The industry also mines for zircon sand and produces synthetic rutile. Companies can also carry out processing functions to produce titanium dioxide pigment.

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.
