New Report on the Global Zinc Mining Market


Global Zinc Production to Reach 15.7Mt in 2022 to Meet Rising Demand

Global Zinc Production is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.8% between 2019 and 2022, to reach 15.7Mt in 2022, according to GlobalData.

The company’s latest report: ‘Global Zinc Mining to 2022’ states that growth will be supported by production expansions and new mines commencing operations across China, Canada, India, Kazakhstan and Mexico.

Vinneth Bajaj, Senior Mining Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “After declining substantially in 2016, global zinc mine production increased in both 2017 and 2018, reaching 13.2Mt and 13.4Mt respectively. However, the market has remained in a severe deficit, impacted by several mine closures and production cuts over price concerns.”


In 2018 the global production of zinc rose, supported by a 9.9% increase in production from Australia, with an increase in output from MMG’s Dugald River project, the commissioning of Century Resource’s New Century mine and the Hellyer Tailings project in Australia. This was supplemented by an 8.5% increase in production from Peru, 7.9% from India, and 5.9% from the US. However, output was still 1.1Mt short of global demand, which reached 14.5Mt due to increasing demand from China, Germany, the US and Belgium. Production from China, the world’s largest producer of zinc, is estimated to have declined, albeit marginally, by 1%, owing to environmental restrictions.

Bajaj adds:Looking ahead, there are almost 100 zinc projects expected to commence operations between 2019 and 2022, of which around 24 are currently under construction, while the remainder are under various stages of development. Of these projects, around 15 are located in Australia, 11 in Canada, eight in Mexico, six in Peru, five in the US and four each in Kazakhstan, Russia, and China.”

New Report on Payments Landscape in Russia


Domestic Scheme Mir Disrupting Russian Payment Card Market

Russian Payment Card Market evolved at a rapid pace during 2014-18, with the country’s consumers enthusiastically embracing new technologies and increasingly favoring card-based payments for low-value transactions. The introduction of National Payment Scheme ‘Mir’ also provided a much-needed push to overall payment card market growth, says GlobalData.

GlobalData’s latest report, Payments Landscape in Russia: Opportunities and Risks to 2022 states that while international scheme providers Mastercard and Visa continue to dominate the Russian card market, they have experienced a dip in their cumulative market share owing to rising adoption of Mir Cards.

Mir was launched in December 2015 by the Central Bank of Russia.  There were over 40 million Mir debit cards and 1.3 million credit cards in circulation in 2018, issued by over 140 banks. To increase acceptance in international markets, these cards are co-badged with international schemes.

This growth in Mir card adoption has been supported by concentrated government efforts, large-scale card issuance by banks and widespread merchant acceptance. The introduction of benefits in the form of reward programs and cashback will further drive usage among card holders.

Shivani Gupta, Payments Analyst at GlobalData, explains: “Mir payment cards are increasingly preferred by Russian merchants due to their comparatively low acceptance cost. An interchange fee of 0.8% on debit cards and 1.3% on credit cards is charged – which is much lower than Mastercard’s 1.50% on debit cards and 1.55% on credit cards.”

Meanwhile, a federal law – mandating that all public sector employees migrate to Mir cards by July 2018 in order to receive their government welfare benefits into their linked bank accounts – further accelerated its adoption.

Gupta concludes: “The growing adoption of Mir is now posing significant challenges to the international players, thereby disrupting the overall Russia payment card space – especially the debit card market.”

Global Risk Report Quarterly Update: Q4 2018


Momentum of economic growth achieved in 2017 reduced in 2018, due to slower growth rate in major Asian and European economies. The growth is expected to slow down further in 2019 as investments weaken and trade activities subside.

Key Highlights from the report –

  • Asia-Pacific region has the second lowest regional risk after Europe. India, Malaysia and Pakistan registered improvements in their risk score whereas overall risk in Bhutan, Kyrgyzstan and Nepal increased in Q4 2018 over the last update (Q2 2018).
  • Europe is the lowest risk region in the world. The risk score of the European region witnessed a marginal increase in Q4 2018 on the back of increasing political and economic tensions such as uncertain Brexit, looming economic crisis in Italy, among others. There has been an improvement in the rankings of Romania, Serbia and Iceland whereas overall risk increased in Slovakia, Bosnia and Belarus in MLCRI Q4 2018 update.
  • The risk score of the Americas also increased in Q4 2018 over the previous update in Q2 2018 as a result of vulnerability of Latin American countries such as Venezuela and Argentina. The 35 day government shutdown from December 2018 to January 2019 has caused severe damage to the US economy. Jamaica, Panama, Trinidad and Tobago recorded an improvement in the ranking whereas overall risk in Colombia and Uruguay increased in Q4 2018
  • The Middle Eastern and African regions also recorded a rise in the risk score in Q4 2018 on the back of heightened geopolitical risks due to scandals regarding Saudi Arabia, sanctions on Iran and a weak economic performance in the region.

New Reports on Electrophysiology Catheters Market

Quality, Elektrophysiologie

Electrophysiology Catheters Global Market set to reach $3.9bn by 2028

The Global Electrophysiology Catheters Market is expected to reach $3.9bn by 2028, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.1%, according to GlobalData.

Sheryl Tang, Medical Devices Analyst at GlobalData comments, “The increasing incidence of atrial fibrillation due to lifestyle factors and cardiovascular diseases is driving the growth of the electrophysiology catheters market. Electrophysiology ablation also demonstrates better outcomes compared to lifelong pharmaceutical treatment, driving procedure numbers and companies to invest in the market.”

Barriers to market growth, particularly in developing countries, include the high cost of building labs specifically for electrophysiology procedures, as well as training specialists to perform the procedure.

Tang concludes, “While patients have the option of pharmaceutical treatment for atrial fibrillation, electrophysiology ablation would eliminate the need for lifelong medication. Cryoablation shows the strongest potential for growth; it is a device that requires less precision than a radiofrequency ablation catheter while demonstrating similar patient outcomes. With only one company monopolizing that market along with the growing patient pool, it is only a matter of time before other major manufacturers enter the cryoablation market.”

UK Household Insurance: Distribution and Marketing 2018


Purchasing Household Insurance Directly from Providers is Losing Ground to Competitors

The share of UK consumers that purchased contents insurance online via a smartphone or tablet increased from 2.5% in 2016 to 16.0% in 2018 according to GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company. The increase was even larger for those purchasing buildings insurance with an increase from 3.0% in 2016 to 30.4% in 2018.

The latest report ‘UK Household Insurance: Distribution and Marketing 2018reveals that more than 60% of home insurance purchases in 2018 were conducted online across all three household insurance products when PC and laptop sales are also included.

Yasha Kuruvilla, Associate Insurance Analyst for GlobalData comments: “Online sales are dominating the household insurance market, with every other method seeing a decline since 2016. Phone sales were hit the hardest, seeing a fall in popularity from 32.0% in 2016 to 18.6% in 2018.”

While buying household insurance directly from the provider is still the most popular purchasing channel in 2018, price comparison websites are likely to gain ground in the future. This is due to consumer demand for convenient and competitively priced purchases and the stark increase in online sales, where comparison sites have a strong presence.

Furthermore, the decline in the availability of affordable homes will result in the age of first-time home buyers rising in the UK. This will lead to a greater proportion of people in the UK renting until later on in their life.

Kuruvilla adds: “The rise of ‘Generation Rent’ will prompt an increase in the number of contents and buildings only policies in the household insurance market. These products are simpler than a combined policy, making online purchasing more accessible for the general public. Our data reflects this- while online sales increased for all three products, the increase was most pronounced for contents and buildings policies.”

New Report – Click & Collect in the UK 2018 – 2023


Click & Collect in the UK to Grow to £10bn by 2023 but Customer Satisfaction Lags Behind Home Delivery

The UK Click & Collect Market is set to rise 45.8% over the next five years to reach £9.8bn by 2023, but growth will slow as the fulfilment method matures and services offered by retailers are optimised, according to GlobalData.

The latest report ‘Click & Collect in the UK 2018 – 2023’ reveals that the clothing & footwear sector is by far the largest within the click & collect channel, accounting for 59.9% of spend in 2018. Although the majority of key multichannel retailers have finely tuned their proposition over recent years by extending order cut off times, increasing speed and minimising costs, service enhancements have plateaued as these elements have been optimised.

Emily Salter, Retail Analyst for GlobalData, commented: “Although 79.9% of click & collect users were satisfied with click & collect services in 2018*, this is significantly lower than for home delivery, which stands at 89.5%*.

“Retailers continue to introduce measures to meet rising consumer expectations for home delivery, such as offering same day services – led by online pureplays such as Amazon and ASOS. Next is one of the few multichannel retailers currently offering a click & collect proposition to rival the speed and cost of home delivery, through recently introducing free one hour collection in selected stores.”

Additional purchases increase the importance of click & collect to retailers, as 39.2% of customers bought an additional item while collecting their last order*. This varies quite substantially by sector though, with food & grocery items being the sector that more customers purchase an extra item from, due to the low prices and essential nature of many products, and presence in a range of stores.

Salter concludes: “A number of factors will inhibit growth of the click & collect channel, including store closures. The growing number of retailers closing stores and implementing CVAs will reduce the availability of collection points, increasing usage of alternative delivery options. Additionally, delivery saver schemes encourage customers to predominantly use home delivery as express deliveries are included in the vast majority of schemes, driving up usage of express home delivery.”

UK Pet Insurance: Distribution & Marketing 2018


Purchasing preferences moved back towards price comparison sites and brokers in 2018, after a strong shift towards the direct channel in 2017. The direct channel still leads the way by over 20 percentage points (pp) for both cats and dogs, but it has seen reductions of over 5pp in both products. Unsurprisingly, consumers continue to move towards online purchases, with smartphones and tablets becoming a serious option for buying insurance. Every non-digital method saw declines in their share for cats and dogs as a result. Petplan remains dominant despite suffering a slight decline in its share of respondent selection.
