The average size of annual marketing budgets of mining industry suppliers was recorded at US$3.3 million in 2012, and has decreased to US$2.5 million in 2013. Mining suppliers that operate in Asia-Pacific have the highest average budgets of US$4.5 million in 2013.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?

'Market uncertainty', 'falling demand', 'responding to pricing pressure' and 'retention or recruitment of skilled staff' are identified by respondents as the pressing business concerns in the global mining industry. Among buyers, 50% of respondents rate 'market uncertainty' as the important business concern in 2013, while 42% highlight 'falling demand'. Among suppliers, 'market uncertainty' and 'responding to pricing pressure' are considered the significant business challenges in 2013, according to 57% and 36% of respondents respectively.
