Global Mining Industry Forecast - Industrial Info's new Top-Line Spending Forecast for the Global Mining Industry provides capital and maintenance spending trends and forecasts ranging from 2006 through 2015.

Our bottom-up approach allows IIR to provide a more accurate forecast of the industry. The forecast is updated quarterly. The report provides a broad overview of the Mining Industry and also allows users to drill down further, differentiating the data by above-ground and underground mines, and filtering data by industry segment, geographic region and type of project (capital or MRO).

Global Mining Industry Slurry Valve Forecast - In this analysis, approximately $4 billion of global spending is forecast for Slurry Valves from 2012 through 2015 from greenfield/brownfield mine developments, mine expansions, plus maintenance and replacement costs at existing mines. The analysis also includes historical spending statistics for the 2006-11 period. A special segmentation for Knife Gate Valves is included as part of the Slurry Valve population.

Statistics can be summarized by global region, with special country breakouts for China, Australia and South Africa.
