The near- to medium term outlook for the global economy will be dominated by the response of the global economy to the higher interest rates in the developed economies that have been deployed to bring inflation under control and the success of the Chinese authorities in offsetting the structural downturn in real-estate. Our base case assumption is that a major global downturn will be avoided. Perhaps more significant is the acceleration in disruptions to mine production which have effectively delayed and reduced the expected surpluses in the concentrate market until 2025. The disruptions have been caused by a combination of price induced closures and technical issues at operating mines, a strike and slippage to new projects.
