What’s the key takeaway from this quarter’s report?

The global economy, and the manufacturing sector in particular, has decelerated in recent months.

This has weighed on global zinc demand which is now forecast to contract by 1% in 2019, marking a second consecutive year of contraction.

Despite falling demand, the fundamental outlook for the zinc market in the near-term is still positive as smelter production in H1 fell.
