Lead Mining Market Analysis including Reserves, Production, Operating, Developing and Exploration Assets, Demand Drivers, Key Players and Forecasts, 2021-2026

Pages: 66 Published: November 21, 2022 Report Code: GDMMGL006MR

The lead mine production is estimated to be 4,561.8 thousand tonnes (kt) in 2022 and is expected to achieve a CAGR of less than 1% during 2023–2026. Production over the forecast period is expected to remain flat owing to the lower production from China, India, Mexico, the US, and South Africa. However, global lead demand is expected to increase in the medium term, supported by the steady new vehicle production, replacement battery use, and effective utilization of lead batteries in EVs.
