Nickel among other base metals is the major commodity produced in the Philippines. In 2013, the country’s nickel mine production was up by 6% over 2012. The country’s average nickel mine production more than tripled in 2006 to 92,700 metric tons accounting for around 3.7% of global nickel mine production according to the USGS. The substantial growth in production was mainly due to higher prices on the global market and a surge in demand that started during the second quarter and continued until the end of the year.

However, a decrease in foreign investors and negative local environmental and socioeconomic effects are the key factors affecting the country’s mining industry.  
  • The country’s mining sector has barely contributed towards its economy. For the period 2008–2012, the sector contributed on an average of 0.8% annually. In 2012, it accounted for around 0.7% of GDP or about PHP20.5 billion (US$485 million) in the form of taxes, fees and royalties.  
  • Over the forecast period 2014–2020, the Philippines’s nickel mine production is expected to post a CAGR of 8% to reach 631,439t by 2020. 
  • The Philippines’ nickel mining industry is dominated by the following companies: Nickel Asia Corporation, Benguet Corporation, Toledo Mining Corporation plc, and Century Peak Metals Holdings Corporation.
