BMI View: The DRC's mining sector will be supported by the country's vast high-grade mineral reserves and strong mining project pipeline. Despite this, low mineral prices, mineral policy uncertainty and unrest in the east will limit investment growth.

Latest Developments & Structural Trends
  • The Democratic Republic of Congo's (DRC) mining sector growth will be supported by the country's vast high-grade mineral reserves and strong project pipeline. We forecast DRC's mining industry value to grow from USD4.4bn in 2016 to 6.1bn in 2019. This would represent annual average growth of 8.6% during 2016-2019, up from average annual growth of 3.4% during 2010-2014.
  • The country's regulatory uncertainty remains a key concern to the sector's long-term growth. Ongoing mineral policy uncertainty could deter new investment from entering the sector and halt new projects from coming online. In our view, a production growth slowdown would have considerable effects within the country.
