Welcome to the May 2020 issue of the Metal Market Magazine, which features an in-depth update and outlook on soda ash, as well as Chinese logistics and faltering oil prices.

The April 2020 issue – which you can still download   at this link – included extensive analysis on mineral raw materials for the battery supply chain, lithium and graphite.

In this May issue, meanwhile, you will be pleased to find:

  • Soda ash: As the global soda ash industry adjusts to shifts in market fundamentals, we investigate the outlook for the mineral’s key sectors and emerging applications
  • Chinese logistics: China’s domestic logistics are returning to normal but overseas demand has been curbed by the Covid-19 virus, write Carrie Shi and Sybil Pan
  • Oil prices sink: With the oil supply chain in chaos due to oversupply and weak demand, oilfield minerals markets have been rocked by slumping oil prices, writes William Clarke

And look out for the upcoming June issue, which will feature a detailed update on the oilfield minerals market including frac sand, barite and bentonite, as well as a closer look at logistics.

Also available to you is a downloadable PDF of the full magazine issue.
