A Comprehensive Study of the Global Molybdenum Market Including Projections Through 2021 of Molybdenum Supply by Mine, Demand by End-use, and Prices

Molybdenum is an essential industrial metal, with a market value of roughly US$8 Billion in 2010. The CPM Group 2012 Molybdenum Long-Term Outlook analyzes the molybdenum market in great detail. The 370-page study provides in-depth analysis of global molybdenum supply, demand, and price trends, including projections for the next 10 years.

The report contains mine-by-mine production statistics from 2000 through 2020, mine costs for both primary and byproduct producers, details on global roasting capacity, demand projections by end-use, and information on regional molybdenum markets around the world. The prospects for the Chinese molybdenum market are highlighted in a 60-page Focus on China section, which includes detailed production costs, project and provincial-level supply figures, mining regulation and trade policy changes, and key demand drivers. In addition, a project reference guide is provided with details on more than 125 potential molybdenum mines in various stages of development. The Molybdenum Market Outlook provides 10-year forecasts for supply, demand, and prices under a base case and two alternative scenarios.

CPM Group's long-term analyses are based on both macroeconomic and microeconomic approaches. CPM Group uses a top-down analysis of economic, financial, and political trends both globally and in major countries and regions to provide the umbrella overview of the economic environment in which these metals markets will develop. This is combined with a detailed bottom -up analysis of individual sectors of supply and demand. CPM Group's research incorporates the company's intimate knowledge of the metals markets.
