This could revolutionise the industry in the near future... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Analysis Chapter

The Lead, Zinc and Tin Production industry has shrunk over the past five years, as a result of the volatility of global metal prices and fluctuating downstream demand. The industry is highly concentrated, with only about 20 companies operating in the industry, out of which the largest four are expected to generate 78.3% of the industry's revenue in 2016-17. Industry revenue is expected to fall at a compound annual rate of 7.2% over the five years through 2016-17 to total £593.8 million. During the current year, industry revenue is forecast to contract by 0.6% as lead prices remain subdued on global markets.
