Apr 25, 2019Mine production in the first half dropped 2.4% year over year, with reductions in China, India and Australia offsetting a 5.6% rise in European zinc mine production. Global zinc usage dropped 0.6% year over year, a trend led by apparent demand decreases in South Africa, Taiwan and the U.S., according to the report.
This statistic represents global seaborne iron ore demand between 2011 and 2017, with a breakdown by region or country. Chinas seaborne demand of iron ore is expected to amount to around 999 million metric tons in 2017. Iron ore is the raw material used to make pig iron, which is one of the main raw
Oct 02, 2018Chinas demand for iron ore. Firstly, as iron ore is tied very closely with steel production, it tends to trend closely with global economic growth, in particular Chinas. China consumes a lot of iron ore because it produces 50.3% of the worlds steel. So Chinese economic growth is a major factor.
Dec 08, 2017Credit Suisse sees iron ore prices remaining higher for longer. Iron ore markets look set to remain higher for longer as a combination of strong steel demand, higher margins and firm output levels in China acts to support prices well into 2018. Thats the view of Matthew Hope, Research Analyst at Credit Suisse, who has upgraded his iron ore price forecasts not only for 2018 but also 2019 and
May 10, 2017It is likely that excess domestic scrap supply will, in the first instance, be used to reduce hot metal ratios in oxygen furnaces, yet the implications for iron ore demand are similar. While total global demand for iron ore is expected to peak around 2025, the decline in the ensuing decade will
13 days agoThese supply disruptions amount to about six per cent of the global iron ore seaborne market. China's latest fiscal stimulus is also expected to prop up iron ore demand and hence support prices. China will sway iron ore prices since it accounts for a half of the world's steel and three fifths of the world's iron ore
Jun 26, 2013Iron ore, used in the production of steel, is another 20%. Coking coal, which is also used for steel production, is about 15%. And it goes down from there copper, gold, bauxite, nickel, zinc, etc. China accounts for about 50% of the world supply and demand of coal. But they have traditionally been a big coal producer and more or less self

Jan 08, 2018Australia forecasts 20 percent iron ore price drop in 2018 as China demand eases. Iron ore currently sells for about $75 a tonne. The lower prices will reflect growing supply from low cost producers and moderating demand from China as the steel industry there contracts, the department said.
Aug 31, 2011The Chinese government is trying to reduce the number of polluting, energy inefficient operations. They are closing coal mines and small iron ore mines and requiring many regional operations to consolidate. I've looked at iron ore projects in China where the company is actually producing a profit from ore that is grading less than 10% iron.
