Pre-LME week 2020 metals review

Report summary

In anticipation of our virtual forum on October 21 for LME Week, we have compiled our view on the themes and issues confronting the industry. After a tumultuous 9 months there is much to write about – and although it does not make for hugely positive reading in the here-and-now, there are rays of positivity for the sector on the horizon. This insight provides a high-level summary of Wood Mackenzie’s near-to-mid-term outlooks for the Base Metals, Gold, Lithium and Cobalt as well as the macro trends having a profound impact on the sector.
