Why India? Why now?

India has always been one of the world’s great sources and markets for industrial minerals.

Right now the country remains on track to be the world’s fastest growing economy with IMF estimated GDP growth forecasts of 7.3% for FY2019 and 7.4% for FY2020.

This has naturally driven strong growth in primary mineral consuming market sectors such as construction, steel, foundry, cement, glass, ceramics, paper, paint and plastics.

And this has been reflected in recent activity by overseas manufacturers keen to establish subsidiaries and participate in joint ventures in India.

However, despite having an abundance of mineral resources, some of which still enjoy strong export markets, there are certain domestic markets which have been caught out by their overreliance on Chinese mineral imports – now declining in availability while increasing in price – which has now forced an urgent reassessment of domestic and import options.

This has given rise to a new wave of mineral resource and product development in India (and surrounding countries), as the challenge grows for consumers wishing to secure new and alternative sources of industrial mineral supply.
