Frost & Sullivan will host a conference call on Wednesday 16 May 2007 at 15.00 BST to provide industry participants with an overview of the recently published study focusing on the Metal & Mining Industry.
The metal & mining industry is key to the economic success of many countries in Africa. The resurgence of global commodity prices has increased the level of investment into an industry which plays a crucial role in the economic growth of many countries on the continent.

market for automation and control solutions in the African metal & mining industry. Customer requirements, market perceptions, and satisfaction levels have all been analysed to give a comprehensive view of the overall market.
Highlights of the briefing include (industrialautomation.frost.com)a strategic analysis of the purchasing process and decision making; market analysis and brand positioning, and strategic market recommendations.
This briefing is based upon ongoing industry analysis. The report provides an insight into the dynamics guiding this market, and includes market challenges, drivers, restraints and avenues of opportunity for growth. The purpose of this research is to gain a deeper understanding of the Metal & Mining sector and its market revenue value.
This briefing will benefit both OEMs and large system integrators "Despite the high expectations and requirements they have of their suppliers, mines feel they are not getting value for money particularly in
the level and quality of value added services.
