Global lead long-term outlook Q2 2018

Report summary

The key near- to medium-term issues still centre on the availability of concentrates. Supply constraints from mine closures and environmental restrictions have seen stocks remain at critically low levels. The secondary smelting sector raw materials supply continues to suffer enduring tightness, limiting the ability of recycled lead to compensate for the deficit in primary output. Refined lead availability is tight, although not severe, but which may become acute after the summer low-season when battery producers enter the peak demand period as they build stocks for winter replacement demand. This will support the lead price and help trigger some new and restarted mine capacity to improve supply to primaries. Combined with strong demand, this will produce a 101 kt refined lead supply-demand deficit this year, with the market holding a close balance for the following couple of years before new mine production starts to ease supply.
