Industries of Pakistan

Mining Industry of Pakistan

Pakistan has some of the biggest mineral reserves in the world. The country is blessed with exceptional geological and geomorphological features. Out of the 92 known minerals, 52 are commercially exploited. The dominant minerals include coal, copper, mineral salt, gold, and chromite.

However, the exponential potential of Pakistan’s mining sector remains untapped. It contributed 2.51% to the country’s GDP. In 2019, the mineral exports accounted for 1.13 billion USD dollars which is significantly less than the mineral imports of the country.

There are, however, opportunities in the market as the country inculcates a conducive environment for new mining companies and works on the governing policies. Camamach is the perfect choice to look for reasonably priced mining and mineral processing equipment that’ll help improve the output.

Construction Industry of Pakistan

Pakistan has one of the fastest-growing populations in the world. The construction industry remains an active industry with 7.61% of the country’s labor force and 380 billion PKR contribution to the country’s GDP.

The pending cases pertaining to the industry are expected to add 1.1 trillion PKR monetary value, and the industry is valued at 2705.5 billion PKR by 2028. What’s more is that the government of Pakistan is invested in the Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme, which is a mega construction scheme spread across the country. In short, the construction sector seems to have a good future ahead.

Why should Pakistan import equipment?

  • Availability: The capacity of the local Pakistani industry is limited. International distributors, on the other hand, have no shortages of equipment.
  • High Equipment Cost: Domestic manufacturers are often more costly than overseas distributors.
  • Expensive Equipment: International vendors consider every aspect and provide a variety of other benefits that customers prefer in the long run.
