Gold and Other Non-Ferrous Metal Processing industry trends (2014-2019)

poll Average industry growth 2014–2019: 7.1%

The Gold and Other Non-Ferrous Metal Processing industry mainly processes semi-refined gold. Semi-refined gold and gold dore bars are supplied from gold ore mining firms to the industry to be further processed into refined gold. Refined gold volumes are expected to total 358.7 tonnes in 2019-20, up from 300.4 tonnes in 2014-15, due to higher mining volumes and greater demand for industry services. Although the industry refines a substantial volume of gold, some firms do so for a fee. These firms do not own either the gold bullion feedstock or the refined gold produced. The refining fee earned by these industry participants represents only a small fraction of industry revenue. The industry's performance has been strong over the past five years, with...

Refined gold volumes, world and domestic gold prices, and the value of the Australian dollar will continue to influence the performance of the Gold and Other Non-Ferrous Metal Processing industry over the five years through XXX-XX. Despite the price of gold in Australian dollars being likely to increase over the next five years, declines in the volume of refined gold, and lower exports are anticipated to contribute to slight industry revenue falls over the period. Improving global economic conditions are forecast to increase competition from other asset investment options. This will be a key factor in generally lower US dollar gold prices over the period. Gold Corporation and Pallion Group are anticipated to continue being the largest industry playe...

What is Gold and Other Non-Ferrous Metal Processing industry?

Industry Definition

Industry firms smelt and refine gold, nickel and tin, and cast these metals into ingots, bars, sheets and other basic shapes. These manufacturing processes are carried out after the ore has undergone a beneficiation process at the mining phase to produce ore concentrate. Some firms in the industry also smelt, refine and manufacture other non-ferrous metals, such as bronze, silicon and titanium. Producers may also recover these non-ferrous metals from scrap.
