Zinc - a special raw material

Zinc - a special raw material
(PresseBox) ( Herisau, )
Even though investors may not have zinc on their radar, this commodity is one to keep an eye on.

In the case of zinc, the most important driver of global demand is China. The country is both the most important net importer and the most important refined zinc producer and consumer. Recycling is an important issue for zinc as a raw material. Zinc market deficits can occur in the short to medium term due to mine closures. Besides zinc, other important metals such as copper and silver are usually mined. Zinc prices are currently relatively stable, even though zinc inventories are declining slightly.

Experts expect that the Asian and American markets will continue to use up zinc stocks, which will reduce the surplus. And zinc is needed for galvanizing steel. So, the demand for zinc comes from infrastructure projects and from the steel industry. Infrastructure projects are also thinking about the future, digital connectivity, infrastructure development on land, in the air and on water.

The innovation platform for mobility and logistics is, among other things, the Hypermotion in Frankfurt, which has just ended. The topic is the transport and energy turnaround and how it can be driven forward. One interesting topic is Hyperloop technology, a high-speed technology that can revolutionize the transport of goods and people. One of the raw materials involved is certainly zinc. High-speed scenarios, like other future technologies, need raw materials, including zinc.

For example, China's largest zinc producer Griffin Mining - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BSerfJBFysk - owns zinc at the Caijianying mine. The company has an 88 percent stake.

Osisko Metals - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1abKFXCdN04 - is also into zinc. The company has control over one of Canada's most important zinc mining areas, the Pine Point project.
