BMI View: While Namibia holds substantial diamond and uranium reserves among other minerals, the government's potential to enforce policy to extract greater revenue from the sector remains a key downside risk to investment. Overall, we forecast Namibia's mining industry value to grow on average 4.7% y-o-y from an estimated USD1.5bn in 2014 to USD1.9bn in 2018. This will represent a decline in the mining sector's contribution to GDP from 13% in 2014 to 10% in 2018. On the positive side, we anticipate greater Chinese investment to flow into the country's mining sector.

The bulk of exploration and mining in Namibia focuses on diamonds, uranium and base metals including copper, lead and zinc. A number of major players, including Rio Tinto and De Beers, operate in Namibia's mineral resources sector. Namdeb is a joint venture between De Beers (50%) and the Namibian government (50%), and is the country's leading diamond producer.
