In 2019, the global iron ore demand and supply gap, which has been in surplus for the past two decades, narrowed to 163.9Mt, with an estimated 2,258Mt of iron ore mine production - up by 1.3% on 2018. However, demand growth for iron ore is expected to slow in 2020, mainly due to a slump in demand from China in the first half of the year, as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Global iron ore production is expected to decline marginally by 1.2% in 2020 to 2,230.8 million tonnes (Mt) as the leading producers are impacted by a range of factors including weather-related disruptions and mine closures due to COVID-19. Between 2021 and 2024, global production of iron ore is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.5%, to reach 2,553.8Mt in 2024, with Australia, Brazil, Russia and India being the key contributors towards this growth.
