Newcrest Mining: how well is the company positioned to weather future industry disruption?

By Nicu Calcea

Newcrest Mining, a mining company based in Australia, has a relatively high chance of benefiting from its investments in a series of technological, macroeconomic, and sector-specific investments in recent years, according to analysis from GlobalData.

The company was ranked fifth out of 50 in a ranking of overall leadership in the 10 themes that matter the most to the mining sector.

These themes, which can be defined as any issues that keep CEOs awake at night, describe technological, macroeconomic and industry-specific challenges that companies are currently facing, as well as the opportunities they create. GlobalData’s Thematic Research ecosystem identifies and tracks these challenges, and how they create the long-term winners and losers of the mining industry.

Newcrest Mining received the top mark of five for two of the 10 themes identified as the most important to the mining sector in the GlobalData Thematic Scorecard – M&A and Workplace Safety – indicating that it is a dominant player in those categories. Newcrest Mining received a high mark of four for its performance in Internet of Things, Capital Raising, ESG, Climate Change, Commodity Markets and COVID-19; a mark of three for Autonomous Vehicles; ; and a low mark of one for Lithium-Ion Batteries.

The interactive graphic below allows you to compare Newcrest Mining to the ratings of other mining companies across the 10 themes in question. The higher up a company is on the list, the better positioned it is to weather disruption in the future, while the companies at the bottom are more vulnerable to disruptive threats.
