BMI View: Mining output in the Philippines will continue to be severely affected by softening of Chinese demand for key mined metals, including nickel, copper and gold. Weakness in global prices for these minerals will deter investment in Philippines mining in the short-term; however, we maintain that the industry is well positioned for longer term growth as foreign miners look to take advantage of the country's sizeable and relatively untapped deposits, as well as low operating costs.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends
  • We have revised our production forecasts for Philippines metals production downwards in reflection of a sharper than expected fall in price levels for a number of commodities and the subsequent scaling back of domestic output. Philippines nickel production fell by more than 24% during the first 10 months of 2015, according to Bloomberg data, due to a collapse in Chinese demand, and we expect output to contract by about 6% in 2016.
