Global Iron Ore Mining to 2025 – Updated with Impact of COVID-19

Global iron production was 2,191.2Mt (million tonnes) in 2020, down by 3% on the previous year. On a country basis, the two largest iron ore producers Australia and Brazil had 0.2% and 2.1% falls in production respectively. Meanwhile, South Africa and India reported estimated falls of 35.2%, and 16.5% respectively in 2020. The falls across these countries were due to a range of factors including COVID-19 impact, poor weather conditions, tailing dam restrictions, and delays in the start of new mines. Rio Tinto, Vale SA, BHP, Fortescue Metals Group (FMG), and Anglo American Plc are the world’s five largest iron ore producers, together accounting for 52% of the global total in 2020. Lower demand from major steel-producing countries led to an estimated 2.2% decline in iron ore consumption in 2020. In contrast, iron ore consumption in China, which accounts for more than 60% of the global total, grew by 4.4%, with steel output in the country growing by 5.7% in 2020.
