Global Zinc Mining to 2020

Global Zinc Mining to 2020

Synopsis

Timetric's 'Global Zinc Mining to 2020' report comprehensively covers global reserves of zinc by country, the historic and forecast data on zinc production, prices and zinc smelters by major companies, and refined zinc consumption.

The report also includes demand drivers for global zinc, profiles of the world's major zinc producing companies, and information on active, exploration and development zinc projects.

It is an essential tool for companies active in global zinc mining, and for new competitors considering entering the industry.

Summary

Australia, China, Peru, Mexico and the US have the largest zinc reserves and together accounted for 152 million tonnes (Mt), or 74.5% of the global total as of January 2016, although zinc ore deposits are found in more than 50 countries.

More than 30% of Australia's zinc reserves are collectively located in Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia, with smaller deposits in Tasmania and the Northern Territory. China’s Yunnan province accounts for 22.8% of the country’s total zinc reserves, followed by Inner Mongolia with 19.3%, Gansu with 10.7%, Guangdong with 8.15%, Sichuan with 6.95%, and Qinghai with 4.8%.

The global zinc mining industry has recorded steady growth since 2010, supported by demand from the construction and automobile sectors. In 2015, global zinc mine production was an estimated 13.4Mt in 2015, up by 0.4% over 2014 as a result of an increase in production from Australia, India and Peru.

Scope

The report contains an overview of the global zinc mining industry together with the key factors affecting the industry and demand for the commodity.

It also provides information about global zinc reserves, the historic and forecast data on zinc production, prices and zinc smelters by major companies, refined zinc consumption, the competitive landscape and active, exploration and development zinc projects.Reasons To Buy

Gain an understanding of the global zinc mining industry, reserves, historic and forecast data on zinc production, prices, zinc smelters by major companies, refined zinc consumption, demand drivers, active, exploration and development zinc projects and the competitive landscape.Key Highlights

  • Approximately 80% of the zinc mines across the globe are underground mines, 8% are open-pit mines and the remainder is a combination of both.
  • In terms of production, underground mines account for 64% of the world’s overall zinc mine production, combined underground and open-pit mines account for 21% and the remaining 15% is sourced from open-pit mines.
  • Global refined zinc consumption is heavily dependent on the galvanized steel industry; galvanized steel is widely used in automobile production and infrastructure development.
