Tokyo Metals Briefing 2024

Join us in person to hear the latest market outlook for key mined commodities

As the world races towards 2030 and key decarbonisation targets approach, it's clear that to achieve significant strides towards low carbon power and sustainable transportation miners, investors and end-users need to increase their exposure to metals.

However, although metals are crucial to achieving an accelerate energy transition in the long-term metals markets continue to be shaped by short and medium-term drivers including over-supply, weaker than expected EV demand and an evolving regulatory environment, for example CBAM or the IRA's foreign entity of concern. 

To help you unravel these themes we will be holding a briefing in Tokyo on Tuesday, May 14th at 2pm JST. Julian Kettle, Senior Vice President, and Prateek Biswas, Research Analyst, will present our outlook for base metals and battery raw materials, including the EV supply chain.
