Inflation and Looming Recession to Haunt Businesses:

In 2022 & 2023, market players expected to sail in rough waters; might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain. Further, U.S. economy is expected to grow merely by 3% in 2022. Purchasing power in the country is expected to fell nearly by 2.5%.
On the other hand, European countries to see the worst coming in the form of energy crisis especially in upcoming winters!! Right after COVID-19, inflation has started gripping the economies across the globe. Higher than anticipated inflation, especially in western world had raised concerns for national banks and financial institutions to control the economic loss and safeguard the interest of the businesses. Increased interest rates, strong USD inflated oil prices, looming prices for gas and energy resources due to Ukraine-Russia conflict, China economic slowdown (~4% in 2022) disrupting the production and global supply chain and other factors would impact each industry negatively.

Lead Overview

Lead is a malleable, soft, heavy metal that exhibits high density and radiates a bluish-white luster. It is found primarily in the form of galena along with zinc, silver, and copper deposits. Lead is commonly used in construction industry, automotive industry and electronic industry. It finds applications in batteries and exhibits low tensile strength and electrical conductivity.


Market Size and Forecast

The global Lead market is expected to showcase a significant CAGR of 6.8% during the forecasted period 2018-2027. Additionally, the global lead market is thriving on the back of building construction industry. Further, rising demand for lead-acid batteries for automotive application on account of increasing automobile industry is expected to showcase a steady growth of the market.   

The global Lead market is segmented into product type, end users, and geography. In terms of regional platform, North America Lead market is projected to lead the growth of overall global Lead market over the forecast period.

Growth Drivers and Challenges

The global Lead market is primarily driven by the growth of building construction industry. This growing usage of lead products for architectural metals for roofing materials, gutters & gutter joints and on roof parapets. Moreover, rising demand for lead-acid batteries for automotive application is a major factor which is expanding the market size of Lead across all regions. Expansion in absorbed glass mat (AGM) lead acid batteries on account of their favorable characteristic of being maintenance-free are also expected to provide growth opportunities for the lead market.

Additionally, government of various regions are investing potentially in smart grid technology that further lead to the growth of lead-acid batteries which are used in electrical vehicles (EV) which serve as one of the major component in the smart grid technology. In contrast, production of high quality Lead is costlier along with strict testing procedure which may dampen the growth of Lead market globally. Additionally, rising competition from the lithium-ion battery in many other lead batteries is challenging for market growth.
