The Philippines' mining industry is starting 2020 with several nickel projects as the country anticipates Indonesia, the world's largest nickel ore supplier, to implement its ban on ore export this year.

The Philippines, the second-largest producer of nickel ore, expects nickel ore production to rise 25% this year, according to government data, to ease the approaching shortfall in supply. The Philippine government's anticipated lifting of last year's moratorium on new mining projects also will contribute to the growth and allow the country's mining industry to advance forward. See graph below for nickel project spending in the country by authorization-for-expenditure date.
