BMI View: Canadian metal production will be driven by increasing import demand in both the US and Mexico to 2018. Increasing manufacturing and industrial activity in the latter two countries should help drive demand for metal inputs. Moreover, a weaker Canadian dollar against the US dollar should help support Canadian exports.

Accelerating economic expansion in the US and Mexico in 2015, combined with a weaker Canadian dollar (CAD) in the coming quarters, will support growth in the Canadian metals sector to 2018. Indeed, we expect both the US and Mexico will experience positive trends in real GDP growth in the coming years, with automotive and general manufacturing activity picking up. We estimate 2015 real GDP growth of 2.7% and 3.5% in the US and Mexico, respectively, and forecast real GDP growth averaging 2.4% in the US and 3.8% in Mexico in 2016-2018.
