Zinc Market: Introduction-
Zinc is a lustrous metal which is bluish-white in appearance. Most of the minerals contain zinc in varying amount. Zinc has almost 55 mineralized forms including the likes of smithsonite (ZnCO3), zinc sulfide (ZnS), among others. Powdered zinc is explosive in nature. Zinc is a versatile element for most of the physiological processes and therapeutic application Zinc is also considered as a drug or as a health supplement. Apart from medicinal application zinc also has various application in the market such as galvanization, chemicals and other.
Zinc Market: Dynamics-
Metallurgy industry is considered to be majorly driving the zinc market. Zinc is excessively consumed for the galvanization of steel and other metals in the production of automotive parts, among its other applications. Furthermore, die cast alloys and other alloys also widely consume in various application such as automotive parts, food packaging and others to provide smooth surface finish which leads to upsurge the demand for zinc. Even, many automotive manufacturer are increasing their production capacity due to increasing demand for automotive vehicles which likely to augment the demand for zinc from automotive and other end-use industry. Rising urbanization coupled with increasing population leads to an upsurge in the construction of affordable housing areas across geographies. This leads to an increase in the demand for galvanized steel, iron and other metals for construction purpose. This is expected to pose steady year on year demand for zinc throughout the forecast period. The therapeutic advantages of zinc have been widely studied and ongoing research is anticipated to commercialize in the near future. Hence, nutraceutical sector is also expected to generate monetary gains for manufacturers operating in the business. This is further supported by the increasing consumer awareness pertaining to the health benefits of several materials including zinc. Zinc is used in corrosion protection of metal surfaces. Hence, the increasing production and consumption of consumer electronics and power grids is escalating the market growth of zinc. The increasing demand of zinc in most of the niche applications is anticipated to add significant value to the zinc market in the long term.
However, stringent government rules and regulation on the production of zinc are noted to cause setbacks in the large scale supply of zinc in the market. The hazardous effects of zinc when it comes in direct human contact leads to the strict monitoring of its production activities. The price fluctuations of zinc also acts as a significant reasons in hindering the market growth of zinc.
