Pumping iron: A decline in the price of iron ore will lead to a drop in revenue



Abstract

Iron Ore Mining in the US

The US mining sector has grown considerably as the economy has recovered. During the recession, weak demand and subsequent drops in output and prices sent revenue crashing in 2009. The sudden drop in iron and steel demand during the downturn caused iron ore prices to fall significantly, forcing industry operators to curtail production or close mines and processing facilities to reduce costs. Over the coming years, the industry is expected to continue benefiting from expanding foreign demand.

Companies in this industry mine iron-bearing ores. In addition to ore extraction, mining includes the development of mine sites and the processing of ore into a concentrated or pellet form. Iron ore and iron ore pellets are then sold as an input for blast-furnace steel production (Iron and Steel Manufacturing industry, IBISWorld report 33111).

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