Global Lead and Zinc Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Lead is a soft, heavy, toxic metal. It is used in batteries, ammunition, and solder. Zinc is a brittle, gray metal that corrodes in the presence of moist air.


Lead is a chemical element produced by the lead ores. Lead has different forms such as Pb, Bi, and Sn. It can be extracted from the ores in different ways like leaching, concentrating or smelting method. The major sources of lead are galena (Pb), cerussite (Sn) and anglesite (Bi).


Zinc is a chemical element that is an essential mineral for both plant and animal life. It plays an important role in the growth of plants as it helps in the protection against diseases and also aids in the absorption of nutrients from soil. Zinc also has antimicrobial properties which help protect plants against bacteria, fungi, and viruses.

Application Insights:

The anti-corrosion and batteries application segment led the market in 2017 accounting for a share of over 40% in terms of revenue. The growth can be attributed to the extensive use lead-acid batteries as power sources for tools used in construction, mining, automotive and marine applications.

The anti-corrosion alloys segment is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period on account of increasing demand from industrial applications including pipes & tanks, pressure vessels & boiler tubes where high strength leads are required. Zinc is majorly used as an alloying agent for enhancing corrosion resistance properties in these alloys. Other than this application sector also includes consumer durables products such as electronics goods which include mobile phones/smartwatches etc., appliances such as washing machines that utilize both steel and plastic materials have contributed significantly towards overall consumption trends across various regions globally due to their growing demand from developing countries like India China Indonesia etc.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounted for a share of more than 60% of global lead and zinc production in 2017, which can be attributed to high metal reserves and low-cost labor. China is one of the largest producers as well as consumers of these metals, owing to its large deposits of minerals across the country.

The Asia Pacific regional market was followed by North America with a volume share of 23%. The U.S., being one among major consumers across the globe, has witnessed significant growth in demand for anti-corrosion batteries since past few years due to rising concerns about environmental pollution caused by disposable batteries used commonly across various applications including watches, mobile phones etc.

Europe also holds a prominent position with respect to consumption trends across countries such as Germany.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the automobile and electronics industries
  • Growing demand for lead acid batteries in developing countries
  • Stringent environmental regulations on lead emissions driving replacement of lead with other metals in various applications
  • Rising prices of key substitutes such as copper and aluminum
  • Technological advancements that have led to the development of new applications for lead and zinc
