An overview of current trends, issues and opportunities in the global metals sector.

The past few years have been challenging for many metals organizations. Overcapacity and sagging iron ore prices have led to heightened pressure and intense competition. Not surprisingly, everyone is looking for new growth opportunities while – at the same time – remaining keenly focused on reducing costs.

In this report, KPMG International provides a comprehensive overview of current trends, issues and opportunities in the global metals sector. It includes valuable benchmarks as well as forward-thinking advice and practical insights from KPMG partners, industry experts and metals leaders.

About the survey

The Global Metals Outlook 2015 is based on a survey of almost 50 senior metals executives conducted by Forbes on behalf of KPMG International in early 2015. All respondents represented organizations with revenues of between US$1 billion and US$25 billion and were fairly evenly distributed between EMEA, Asia and the Americas.
