Global Uranium Mining to 2020

Global uranium mine production according to GlobalData's global uranium report was 56,184 tonnes (t) in 2014, down by 5.4% compared with 2013, with Kazakhstan being the leading producer, followed by Canada and Australia.

Scope

The report provides information on the global uranium mining industry, together with the key demand drivers affecting the industry.

It also provides information about reserves, historic and forecast production, production by country, production by mining method and production by major mines

It details the competitive landscape, and major active, exploration and development projects.

Key Highlights

• Global uranium mine (or metal content in the ore) production was 56,184t in 2014, down by 5.4% compared with 2013.

• The recent increase in global production is mainly due to an increase in output from Kazakhstan.

• With power generation being a significant end use for uranium, the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident had an impact on long-term nuclear power policies in Germany, Belgium, France and Switzerland, switching in favor of capping and eventually phasing out nuclear power plants.

• However, there is demand for nuclear capacity from other parts of the world, and demand has a unique regional footprint.
