BMI View: Iron ore and bauxite will emerge as the Australian mining industry's production growth brightspots during 2016-2019. Coal and gold output growth will slow more markedly due to continued priceweakness.Although Australia will remain one of the world's largest mineral producers, growth will slow across theboard due to continued mineral price weakness. The Australian mining sector will be particularly affectedby China's economic slowdown, as the country accounts for almost 80.0% of the country's iron ore exports.We expect Australia's mining industry value to fall to USD128bn in 2015, down from USD141bn in 2014.We forecast Australia's mining industry value growth to pick up again by 2017, reaching USD141bn in2019. Iron ore, for example, which accounts for 44.0% of the country's mining industry value, will increaseits share to 46.0% of industry value by 2019 and drive industry growth.
