Jan 12, 2016, 09:10 ET from Research and Markets

DUBLIN, Jan. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Iron Ore Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.

The market report predicts the global iron ore market to grow at a CAGR of around 3% during the forecast period.

Chinese iron ore output is placed on the higher side of the cost curve ($110+ per MT) compared to Australia, Brazil, and Canada on an average of $45 to $80 per metric tons.

Hence, the decrease in iron ore production in China, as a result of the depletion of mines and the presence of lower-cost production capacities in other regions, has led to an increase in seaborne trade flows to meet demand. Australia is the major supplier of seaborne iron ore. Another trend witnessed in the market are the restrictions in iron ore exports.

According to the report, primarily, iron ore is consumed in the manufacturing of steel. Thus, growth in the construction, automotive, and other end-use industries is one of the major drivers contributing to the growth of the global iron ore market. Almost 98% of the iron ore mined is used in the process of steel making.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges is the volatility in iron ore prices. Price is a major determining factor for many end-users because of budget constraints. Price volatility of essential raw materials directly impacts the revenues and profits of the manufacturer.
