The Philippine Mining Industry is currently going through short-term challenges. The expectation is that within 2017 these challenges will be overcome. Awaiting the responsible mining companies are higher commodity prices, particularly in respect of nickel.
Other minerals sectors worth watching include the upswing in metal mining to provide material to push the promised revival of the steel industry that also revives prospects of a downstream metal manufacturing that can utilize locally mined ores. Likewise, expansion of limestone and aggregates quarries will support the infrastructure boom.
A Growing Industry
From being a weak sector due to the neglect of past governments, Philippine agriculture is now poised to reap dividends for investors harvesting globally vital commodities like coffee, cacao and bananas on the island of Mindanao, where the global growing latitudes of these crops lie. Expanded government credit and free irrigation will boost production of these and other crops that the Philippines itself imports a third of total demand to feed its young population, and satisfy the increasingly affluent region’s taste for a variety of foods. Livestock will also be lucrative, as FMD free Mindanao is unlocked to provide meat for the rest of Asia.
