Tracking the trends 2018

The top 10 issues shaping mining in the year ahead

The 2018 edition of Tracking the trends takes a look at the trends that miners will face in the coming year and outlines a wealth of potential responses proposed from Deloitte member firms' mining professionals.

The 2018 edition of Tracking the trends will mark the tenth year of release. Deloitte examines the top 10 trends that should be on mining companies’ agenda in 2018.

Over the past decade, commodity prices reached both historic highs and historic lows, mining companies engaged in both significant acquisitions and consolidation, and operational realities shifted irrevocably in the face of a digital revolution. For an industry considered staid, change has been surprisingly constant. However, unlike previous cycles, mining companies appear to have learned from the lessons of the past. In paving new paths for the future, the aim now is to change for the better.

In this tenth anniversary report, Deloitte’s global mining professionals once again share their experiences to help identify strategies mining companies can take to smooth out the recovery and minimize the industry’s historical boom and bust cycle. This year, our professionals also share their “best guess outlook” for the future by identifying potential industry disruptors on the horizon.
