PD Hours
Join the Metallurgical Society for their March Webinar: Drivers of global mineral demand from 1890 to 2050.

About this event

The urbanisation and industrialisation of China has driven a several decades-long period of strong growth in demand for global minerals. That is now over, and the world is heading into what will be a several decades-long period where this urbanisation-driven demand will be weak right across the globe. But it's not all gloomy. The bright spot on the demand horizon is the restructuring of global energy systems.
