According to the data of China Nonferrous Metals Industry Association, from January to May of 2012, the national refined zinc output was 1.935 million tons, year-on-year decline of 6%; as for the monthly output data, the output is lower than the average monthly level in last year; as for the regional view, the main producing regions have different levels of output reduction.

The smelters’ shutdowns in Guangdong and Guangxi affect the regional production because of the impact of environmental remediation; from January to May of 2012, year-on-year decline of products are 32.4% and 28.2% respectively. Huludao Zinc Industry Co., Ltd which is a large zinc enterprise in Liaoning Province, adjusted the on-stream efficiency in accordance with market quotes, that made the start level weaker than last year, the regional output from January to May of 2012 declined by 14.8%. 

Due to the abundant raw material supply and the operation of newly increased production capacity since the last year, from January to May of 2012, Inner Mongolia still holds an increase of 6.7%. The production in Shaanxi Province is more stable, year-on-year growth 5%; while compared with the double-digit growth in the same period of last year, the growth rate still slows down. 

Since 2012, LME’s zinc was basically in the dropped state, bottoming out at the end of the second quarter. In July, it rebounded slightly, but the fluctuation was still in the downward trend. The trend of SHFE’s zinc followed the outer disk basically. In August, the macro aspect’s good news and bad news mixed, zinc price plunged into shock; in the end of August, slightly rebounded following the outer disk. 

The average price of zinc in SHFE was CNY 14,626 / ton in August, increased by 0.4% of month on month, declined by 19.9% year-on-year; the domestic average price of 0# zinc in August was CNY14,575 / ton, declined by 0.2% month on month and declined by 18.9% year-on-year.

Development directions of zinc industry

  • Galvanized sheet increased rapidly and cannot be replaced;  
  • Zinc-manganese batteries, silver zinc batteries, magnesium zinc ferrite and nickel zinc ferrite technology developed rapidly;
  • Zinc is conducive to human health;
  • Hydrometallurgical becomes popular and the environment is better.

Market development directions of zinc industry

  • The smelting capacity will continue to grow rapidly, and it will reach about 5.6 million tons in 2017; 
  • Industrial restructuring will gain significant progress: the layout develops to resource areas; technology advancements further progress; industrial concentration will improve , the proportion of mining, selecting and smelting integrated enterprises has risen;
  • Lacking of raw materials and environmental protection are still the main factors affection supply;
  • The usage of complex materials will be apparently improved;
  • The net improve of zinc ingots is inevitable.
