This report provides data and analysis on category-level spending outlooks, budgets, supplier selection criteria, business challenges and investment opportunities of leading purchase decision makers in the global mining industry. The report also identifies future growth of buyers and suppliers, M&A and e-procurement in the global mining industry. This report not only grants access to the opinions and strategies of business decision makers and competitors in the global mining industry, but also examines their actions surrounding business priorities. The report also provides access to information categorized by region, company type and sizes Summary This report is the result of an extensive survey drawn from ICD Research's exclusive panel of leading global mining industry executives. The report provides data and analysis on buyer expenditure, procurement and developments within the global mining industry. This report includes key topics such as global mining industry buyer expenditure and procurement behaviours and strategies. This report identifies the threats and opportunities within the global mining industry, economic outlook trends and business confidence within global mining industry executives. Most secondary research reports are based on general industry drivers and do not understand the industry executives' attitude and changing behaviours, creating a gap in presenting the business outlook of the industry. In an effort to bridge this gap, ICD Research created this primary-research based report by gathering the opinions of multiple stake holders in the value-chain of the global mining industry.
