Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of iCD Research’s new report “The Chilean Mining Sector – Market Opportunity and Entry Strategies, Analyses and Forecasts to 2015″ to their offering.

Key Highlights

In 2009, Chile’s total mineral production volume reached an increase of 2.5% over production figures for 2008. Despite the global economic downturn, key minerals such as copper and molybdenum posted growths of 1.5% and 3.9% respectively. By 2015, the industry is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 6.3% during 2010-15. Of this volume, the metallic mineral division is expected to continue to dominate the market, with a share of 50%, followed by the nonmetallic and coal divisions, with shares of 34% and 16% respectively.

During 2009, the total value of mineral production stood at US$25.9 billion, indicating a significant CAGR of 15.5% since 2004, but down 15.2% over figures for 2008. Of this production, copper production accounted for 88%. However, despite a marginal increase of 2.5% in terms of volume, the total value declined due to the decrease in the average price of copper and other key minerals in the same year.
