Global Nickel Mining to 2024 – Updated with Impact of COVID-19

Global nickel mine production is expected to decline by 7.4% in 2020, to reach 2,195 thousand tonnes (kt), due to temporary suspensions of mines and mining activities, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, along with the advancement of Indonesia’s export ban from 2022 to 2020. In contrast, notwithstanding the challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, production in New Caledonia and Brazil is expected to increase by a combined 6.9% in 2020 over the previous year, mainly upheld by the resumption of commercial production at the Santa Rita mine in Brazil, which was previously halted in 2015 due to low nickel prices coupled with higher production from Vale’s Goro nickel project in New Caledonia. Looking ahead, global nickel mine production over the forecast period (2021-2024) is expected to recover at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.2%, to reach 2,638kt in 2024. Indonesia, Australia, the Philippines and Canada will be the key contributors to this growth.
