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.

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.
