Metals & Minerals Webinar to Discuss $2.5 Trillion in Potential Spending, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwired - Aug 25, 2015) - Event Announcement from Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- Although there has been a slide in the prices of metals and other commodities over the past several months, the Metals & Minerals Industry remains one of the world's most dynamic, forward-moving industries. Industrial Info is tracking more than $2.5 trillion in active Metals & Minerals Industry projects, which encompass a broad array of sectors, such as mining (including oil sands mines), aluminum smelters, steel mills, cement production, and much more.

On Wednesday, August 26, Industrial Info will be holding a complimentary Metals & Minerals Industry Webinar, in which our industry experts will discuss what's driving current spending in the industry and what we can expect in the coming year. "There are a lot of different factors driving the global markets," says Joe Govreau, Industrial Info's vice president of Global Metals & Minerals Industry research. "We are seeing a lot more mega-projects throughout the world, as project owners must operate within economies of scale to maintain profits in today's market."

Mr. Govreau notes that more than $920 billion of projects are planned in China and India. Many of these are for steel mills, which is causing concern for steel producers in North America and elsewhere. After China, Canada holds the No. 2 position in the world for planned Metals & Minerals project spending.
