Metals in the future 2018
Metals in the Future 2018 is a new conference exploring the long-term impact of green technology on metals supply and demand. The conference examines a broad spectrum of materials, including steel, aluminium, base metals, minor metals and ferroalloys.
Understanding materials flows and successfully predicting long-term demand has always been central to maintaining a leadership position in the metals and mining sector. However, as the world strives to meet climate change targets, the complexity of accurately forecasting future resource requirements is increased, in large part due to the challenge of successfully predicting which green technologies will prove most successful. The stakes are also raised financially by the green economy’s step up in metals intensity and the increased costs associated with bringing new projects to market, especially when there is disagreement on the long run price of the commodity in question.
Metals in the Future 2018 is a pioneering conference which will deliver significant insight into unfolding metals market scenarios. With its expertise in over 120 ore, metals and alloys markets, and a deep understanding of developed and developing markets alike, CRU is uniquely positioned to deliver this pivotal conference.
