The mining sector is playing, and will continue to play, an essential role in energy transition. As demand for critical metals and minerals continues to intensify, a significant increase in foreign investment is likely to occur in the coming decades, with over US$1.7 trillion in investment required to help the transition to clean energy. Demand for precious metals also remains strong, with industrial demand playing a significant role in price increases over 2023.
