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.
