Mining and Metals: The Transformation Map

The mining and metals industry is recovering from one of its most difficult periods in decades. Market volatility and a downturn in commodity prices have created a new normal where cost cuts, automation, and operational efficiency are a must. Meanwhile industry-specific issues related to regulation, geopolitical risk, legal limits on natural resource use, shareholder activism, and public scrutiny have created additional challenges.

In partnership with the World Economic Forum, CCSI curated the Transformation Map of the Mining and Metals sector; it maps out the seven drivers that are already and will continue transforming the mining and metals sector. Transformation maps are a dynamic knowledge tool to understand the issues and forces driving transformational change across economies, industries and global issues and they are publicly accessible upon sign-up here.

A summarized version of the seven drivers transforming mining can be accessed here.

CCSI adapted its vision of the drivers in the context of the pandemics. This presentation explains how the pandemic, over the course of the next two years, could disrupt the mineral sector which is the starting point of the materials supply chains to the high-tech sector. This presentation was conveyed at a webinar for Vichara Partners on May 19, 2020.
