Metal and Metal Ores Market Overview:
Metal and Metal Ores Market is projected to reach at $10,649,885 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 0.2% from 2017 to 2023. Metal is an important resource with properties such as high thermal & electrical conductivity, density, and possesses the ability to be deformed under pressure without splitting. The metals are of two major types-ferrous metals and nonferrous metals. Ferrous metals majorly comprise of iron and numerous types of steel primarily used in the building and construction, aviation and automobile industries. Nonferrous metals include zinc, lead, aluminum, copper, nickel, and tin that are used in the making of alloys, castings, wires, cables, forgings, extrusions, and pipes.
Increase in demand for metals from various end-use industries such as building and construction, aerospace, and automotive. Further, ease of extraction of ores from the mines also predominantly drives the market. The cost of production is less if the extraction of the ore is easier, which indicates high profitability. However, the major restraint in the growth of the global metal and metal ores market is the government instability. Political uncertainty creates risk for the uninterrupted supply of ores. In addition, the adverse taxation and royalty clauses levied by certain governments is also expected to hamper the growth of global metal and metal ores market during the forecast period.

Metal & Metal Ores Market Report Highlights
By METAL TYPE
The mining industry is a major contributor to the growth of the global economy. The sector deals with companies, which extract ores from the earth’s crust. These ores are then refined to transform them into usable metal forms. The metal is then converted into different forms such as foils, sheets, pipes, and bars for use in different sectors.
Upsurge in disposable income of the middle class population and rapid urbanization are anticipated to require substantial investments in transport and infrastructure development, which in return boosts the demand for metal & metal ores in different developing countries. The increase in demand from end-use industries is anticipated to drive the growth of the global market during the forecast period. Usually, regions where ores are mined and where the metals are used by end consumers are different. So any adverse movement in the exchange rates is detrimental to the revenues of the company.
Asia-Pacific dominates the market, in terms of value of metal & metal ores with approximately half of the share in the global market. Furthermore, Europe and Asia-Pacific are projected to grow at the highest CAGRs, owing to rapid industrialization and urbanization in different countries of the regions.
