New study: Economic value of the Swedish Mining Cluster – Today and in the future

November 18, 2021

Today, Sigurd Næss-Schmidt, Partner at CE, presents key insights from our new study on the economic importance of the Swedish mining cluster, at Svemin’s (Swedish industry association of mines, mineral and metal producers) annual meeting.

In our study, we find that the Swedish mining industry and the cluster of companies surrounding it (e.g. specialised mining equipment producers and metal- and steel producers) support 3% of the Swedish GDP, around 100,000-125,000 jobs and 8% of total Swedish exports. We also find that the cluster presents a large potential to contribute further in the future with local metals production, job opportunities, investments, and the development of new fossil free production technologies.
