ILZSG: World supply and demand for lead and the outlook for 2013

ILZSG: World supply and demand for lead and the outlook for 2013

The International Lead and Zinc Study Group held its Fifty-seventh Session in Lisbon, Portugal from 11-12 October 2012. The Session included a meeting of the Study Group’s Statistical and Forecasting Committee to review the current levels of world supply and demand for lead and zinc and the outlook for 2013.   Forecasts | Lead Outlook for 2012 and 2013   Usage Global demand for refined lead metal is forecast to rise by 3.4% to 10.80 million tonnes in 2012 and a further 3.3% to 11.15 million tonnes in 2013. In China, lead-acid battery production and exports have recovered strongly after the wide-ranging environmentally motivated cutbacks in 2011 and lead metal usage is expected to grow by 4.8% this year and 4.7% in 2013. Despite a small downturn in shipments of replacement automotive lead-acid batteries, it is anticipated that demand for lead metal in the United States will increase by 3.9% in 2012 principally driven by growth in the original equipment and industrial battery sectors. However, only a limited rise in usage of 0.6% is anticipated in 2013. European demand is expected to be negatively affected by declining automotive sales and to remain flat in 2012 before increasing by 1.2% in 2013.   Supply It is anticipated that world lead mine production will rise by 10.9% to 5.21 million tonnes in 2012 and by 2.8% to 5.36 million tonnes in 2013. These increases are almost entirely due to the further expansion of production in China with output in the rest of the world forecast to be relatively stable as rises in Mexico, Peru and the Russian Federation are largely offset by a... read more

Frost & Sullivan | New Mega Trends

Frost & Sullivan has just completed a New Mega Trends analysis to provide companies with the tools to not only identify and evaluate these game-changing trends, but also to translate them into market opportunities for everyday business and personal activities. These Mega Trends include: e-Mobility – By 2020, we will have globally over 45 million annual sales of electric vehicles which will include electric two and four wheelers. 2018 will be the great tipping year for the automotive industry; when electric vehicles replace gasoline-powered vehicles as the heart of their business. Health, Wellness and Well-being – Sustainability was one of the major trends of the last decade. Health, Wellness and Well-being will be the most important factor of discussion and differentiation in this decade. Healthcare spending will tip over 15% of GDP by middle of this decade (20 to 30% by 2050) and government’s inability to make the necessary investments will lead to a paradigm shift in the concept of healthcare. Connectivity and Convergence – With over 80 billion connected devices, 9 billion mobile phones, 5 billion Internet users, 5 connected devices for every individual, 10 connected devices for every household and 500 devices with unique digital IDs (Internet of things) per square kilometre, we will pave way to a digital planet by 2020. Connectivity will see wide-spread convergence of technologies, products and even industries. Planes to Trains: The era of high speed rail – In the next 10 years, we predict huge increases globally in high-speed rail and in the vast white space opportunities it brings with it. All regions of the world, including the Middle East and... read more
