Uranium Mining Market in Asia-Pacific to 2020 - Availability of Large Uranium Reserves to Lay the Foundation for the Industry's Future Development

Summary

GBI Research's new report, 'Uranium Mining Market in Asia-Pacific to 2020 - Availability of Large Uranium Reserves to Lay the Foundation for the Industry's Future Development', provides key information and analysis of the Asia-Pacific uranium mining industry, comprising Kazakhstan, Australia, Uzbekistan, China and India. The report covers the industry's drivers and restraints, production and reserves. Asia's uranium mining industry development pathway has increasingly been driven by abundant uranium reserves available in this region. In 2011, the region had more than 50% of total global reserves and produced around 56% of global uranium mine production. This report is based on data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research and in-house analysis by GBI Research's team of industry experts.

Scope

- Important drivers and restraints which are estimated to play a role in transforming the industry during the outlook period 2012-2020.

- Production of uranium in Asia-Pacific – Historical data is provided from 2000 to 2011, and forecast through to 2020.

- Reserves of uranium – Categorized by regional reserves as of 2010.

- Top active and planned projects spanning the Asia-Pacific uranium mining landscape.

- Policy and regulatory framework governing the uranium mining industry.

- Comprehensive profiles of key uranium mining companies such as National Atomic Company Kazatomprom, Energy Resources of Australia Ltd., BHP Billiton Olympic Dam Corporation Pty Ltd., Heathgate Resources Pty Ltd, Navoi Mining & Metallurgy Combinat, China National Nuclear Corporation and Uranium Corporation of India Limited are also discussed.
