Report summary

In the medium to long term the key issue facing the zinc market is whether the zinc mining industry will be able to develop sufficient new mine capacity to offset scheduled mine closures and the incremental increase in global demand. However in the near term the zinc market dynamic will be determined by the ability of Chinese zinc smelters to respond to higher zinc prices and whether the pace of global demand growth will be maintained.
