10th International Zinc Conference - New Drivers of Supply

Metal Events is bringing its 10th International Zinc Seminar to Montreal! Sign up now and benefit from the super early-bird fee of £300 per person.

Zinc prices are currently at levels that haven’t been seen since 2007 and the global market has moved into deficit. The current price has been affected by cuts in concentrate production in Chinese smelters due to an environmental clampdown and at the same time demand for zinc in China has increased in infrastructure, construction and the car industry.

Latest data shows that in the fourth quarter of 2017 Chinese domestic production of zinc concentrate is 1.493 million tonnes, the global zinc concentrate production is 3.398 million tonnes,. Chinese domestic consumption of zinc concentrate is 1.68 million tonnes, global consumption is 3.49 million tons of zinc concentrate.  Global zinc demand is expected to increase by 2.5% in 2018, with China up by 3.% year on year and the rest of the world up by 2.1%. If this continues will it result in restarts in production?

Due to the rise in zinc prices many companies are listing on the TSX which makes Montreal the perfect location for this one-day seminar. It will provide an excellent opportunity to discuss and review current and future market trends. What is in store for the supply chain – do we really need more supply?  What will be the next project to come on stream? What investment is required for the global zinc industry beyond the 2020s? Book now to find out how rising zinc prices will affect your business.
