Global lead long-term outlook Q1 2014

Global lead long-term outlook Q1 2014

Report summary

Our medium term view for the lead market is unchanged since last quarter, with supply side shortages, tougher environmental regulation and refined market deficits still expected to prevail. A shift to deficit is forecast this year with refined production likely to be impacted by further delays and cancellations of new Chinese projects.  Meanwhile global lead demand growth will remain above 4% p.a. with many economies continuing to recover from economic weakness.
