Lead - what to look for in 2015

Lead - what to look for in 2015

Report summary

The past year for the lead market was once again highly influenced by world economic performance and concerns over seemingly weaker  fundamentals. Lead maintained good price stability for H1 2014 but declined from Q3 onwards and dropped sharply in the last weeks of 2014. Nevertheless, our expectation is for a recovery in the lead price during 2015 to average slightly higher than last year as stronger fundamentals start to take effect.
