DRC Mining Sector Investigated in New Cutting-Edge BMI Report Now Available at MarketPublishers.com

28 Jun 2013 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – The Democratic Republic of the Congo is likely to keep on attracting greater international interest due to its vast untapped and top level natural reserves and enhancing, though very poor, business climate. The DRC’s mining business has a high growth potential and is one of the most attractive industries among other Sub-Saharan African countries. The value of the DRC’s mining sector is forecast to grow to USD 2.6 billion by end-2017, mainly fuelled by gold and copper production. Multiple large-scale projects are coming to fruition, with Randgold Resources' Kibali being the one of most notable gold projects. However, mining activities are closely linked to serious problems in the DRC, the most pressing of them being security issues and the lack of proper infrastructure.

New market research report “Democratic Republic of the Congo Mining Report Q3 2013” worked out by Business Monitor International (BMI) offers a comprehensive guide to mining industry in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The study provides a review of the country’s business environment, covers the country’s mining reserves, supply, demand and prices, besides giving insights into the competitive positioning and business strategies of the top industry players and key changes in the regulatory landscape. Furthermore, historical data and forecasts for all major industry and economic indicators (mining industry, output, exports, commodity markets), plus analysis of key downside risks to the main forecast, as well as headline macroeconomic forecasts to end-2017 are on hand in the research report as well.
