    Zinc market report transcript


    Zinc Global Market Outlook

    The global pandemic has resulted in the global steel production contracting and reduced construction and infrastructure development activity, which has reduced the demand for zinc

    •  Zinc has entered a supply surplus market in 2020, with an estimated surplus of more than 71,000 MT in 2020 vs. deficit 189,000 MT in 2019
    •  The zinc market supply surplus that emerges in 2020 is expected to persist into the long term, driven by a sluggish growth in steel production, leading to a long-term price downtrend
    •  Zinc demand is expected to rebound in the short term, as many countries and regions emerge from the pandemic and reopen the economic activity
    •  In the long term, zinc demand is expected to slowdown, due to declining capacity increase in China and Europe
    •  China – Steel production growth slowdown is expected to continue, due to escalating environmental restrictions on producers and declining demand growth from the construction sector
    •  China accounts for about 33 percent of the global zinc production and about half of the global zinc demand
    •  While zinc demand grew at a CAGR of 2.2 percent from 2010 to 2019, the growth is expected to slowdown to 1.1 percent from 2020 to 2029

     Regional Market Outlook

    • China is the world’s largest importer of zinc ore and concentrate with Australia, accounting for 29 percent and Peru accounting for 20 percent of imports to China by volume

    • China’s zinc market saw a decline in the last two years due to various factors, including economic slowdown, declining ore grade, stringent environmental regulations, and US–China trade tensions, impacting production and demand

    • However, the zinc market has recovered in late 2019–2020 after the US–China trade deal, new capacities coming up and easing of production restrictions in China, zinc production is expected the go up

    • China Belt & Road Initiative (BRI) is expected to boost infrastructure development and demand for zinc

    Key Drivers and Constraints

    End-user demand

    • The global demand for steel for construction and infrastructure is a major market driver for zinc
    • The global economic scenario and automotive industry growth impact the zinc market significantly

     Production/supply

    • Zinc prices and environmental regulations in China and reducing demand have impacted supply of zinc mine and metal, leading to mine closures and cutbacks

    Environmental concerns

    • Stringent environmental regulations in China have impacted smelter output growth over the last couple of years

    FX rate

    • China is a major importer of zinc concentrate from Australia and Peru (major exporters), while the US is a major exporter of zinc ore/concentrate and importer of zinc metal from Canada

    Investor demand

    • As zinc is a popular trading commodity, the commodity markets play a big role
