Industry Offering - Mining
With our experienced team of Swedish speaking marketing and sales experts, we are the bridge you need to effectively establish and promote your products & services to the Australian mining sector.
We provide tailored solutions for our clients across:

Marketing and sales strategy
Marketing and sales development long term
The industry opportunity is huge, with Australia a leading mining nation:
Australia is the top or one of the worlds leaders in producing bauxite, lithium, gold, iron ore, lead, alumina, manganese, uranium, zinc, black coal, diamonds, nickel and silver.
Looking at iron ore capacity in Western Australia, Rio Tinto is now pushing 360 Mton/year, BHP Billiton 260 Mton/year, FMG 165 Mton/year, and Roy Hill 55 Mton/year.
The METS sector (Mining Equipment & Technology Services) currently contributes more than A$90 billion to the Australian economy annually, with current exports exceeding A$27 billion.
Industry Offering - Rail
KingHill is, with the support of the Swedish Embassy in Canberra, driving marketing activities with the Team Sweden Rail Australia, a consortium of Swedish businesses in the Australian Rail Industry launched in 2017 The aim is to collaborate more actively with the Australian rail industry and create value by sharing rail experiences from efficiency, technology and innovation projects.
Again, the industry opportunity in Australia is significant. Australia has one of the world´s biggest railway system with approximately 33,000 km of both public and privately-owned track. The biggest private fleet has 16,000 ore cars and freight wagons.
On its west coast, Australia runs the world’s the heaviest and longest heavy haul trains, with axle loads of up to 42 tonnes and train lengths of 2.5 km or more.
Australian innovations include train control centres located 1,800km from the train networks, driverless trains which operate 24/7, and fully automated maintenance facilities.
With investment in rail by the Australian governments set to reach in excess of $100b over the next 10 – 15 years, both the near and long-term future looks very bright for Australian rail.
Industry Offering - Utility
The National Electricity Market (NEM) governs the Australian electricity market and operates one the world’s longest interconnected power systems. In comparison, the system is slightly bigger than Germany's which has a far larger population.
Between the NEM's start in December 1998 and March 2017, new investment added over net capacity of over 10,000 MW of registered generation capacity, mainly wind and solar.
The Australian target for large-scale generation of 33,000 GWh in 2020 means that about 23 per cent of Australia’s electricity generation in 2020 will be from renewable sources.
The target is expected to create more than A$40.4 billion worth of investment and between 30 and 50 major wind and solar farm projects will be built to meet the 2020 target.
With our experienced team of Swedish speaking marketing and sales experts, KingHill has been trusted by several key clients to act as local partner to establish and grow a presence in the Australian Utility market.
Industry Offering - Healthcare
Sweden and Scandinavia share a lot with Australia in the Healthcare space. Within the healthcare sector, the two countries/regions share many similar challenges through demographic changes with rising expenditures for healthcare, as well as an increasing demand for more advanced and costly treatments.
"Australia should closely monitor the development of the Healthcare sector in Scandinavia their demographics are now where we will be in 15-20 years!"
