Chile - a world leader in mining
Chile is the biggest producer of copper and counts with the highest share of lithium reserve worldwide. But the Andean country also holds an enormous potential to become a global player in the energy transition given its abundance in solar and wind energy and its clear goal to promote green hydrogen.

The small country of Chile is a mining player of international importance. In 2021, over 200,000 workers employed in the sector generated sales of over USD 35 billion. In addition to copper, where Chile is the clear leader with almost 30% of global production, it also mines lithium, molybdenum, gold, silver, lead , zinc and iron. For Chile, copper is the largest economic sector, representing 9% of its GDP, and 55% of its total exports in 2021.

Chile’s lithium market makes for 50% of the world’s reserves, with a production of 26,000 tons in 2021, which represents 25% of world production. It is estimated that by 2030 the demand for this element will grow at an annual rate of 30%, supported mainly by batteries and their use in electric cars.

In Chile, the implementation of sustainable technologies is a central theme of climate change policy. Environmental regulations are being strengthened, renewable energies, water management, e-mobility and efficient energy storage are increasingly becoming focal points, and mine operators want to reduce their ecological footprint. Quality conscious Chile plays a pioneering role and offers Swiss SMEs exciting business opportunities with large order volumes.
