In this month’s Metals and Mining Snapshot, we highlight the key themes shaping the metal markets and some of the underlying drivers in our forecast long-term prices, including: Copper: is there a requirement for new project development? Aluminium: will the impact of Chinese environmental regulations be realised? Zinc: will the shortage of concentrate and refined metal persist? Iron ore: can falling prices squeeze out uncompetitive sources of supply? Nickel: will intense interest in EVs fuel a boost in demand?
