Frequent power blackouts in various remote areas which have minimum electric infrastructure and scarcity of electricity are fueling the growth of the market. However, growing occurrences of lead poisoning among consumers has led to development of strict government regulations in reducing lead utilization and consumption which in turn may hinder the growth of the market. In Canada for instance, the Consumer Products Containing Lead Regulations restrict the use of lead in consumer articles across the country in order to reduce direct lead contact. Moreover, the Canadian regulatory body has also restricted the use of lead in solders, electrical equipment, pigments & compounds and cable sheathing applications which may further impede the lead market growth.

Enumerated below are factors that can impact lead industry outlook:

Rising adoption of lead in battery applications

Estimates claim that the batteries application of lead market had reached 19 billion in the year 2018. Lead is extensively used in vehicle batteries. Electric vehicles in particularly, often deploy traction batteries. Traction batteries are also installed in data centers and telecom firms in order to provide emergency backup for telecom and computer systems. Thus, rising adoption of lead in the telecoms, data centers, and automotive sector is contributing to the growth of lead industry from batteries application.

Strict government regulations over reducing carbon footprint is also paving the way for surging need for electric vehicles which in turn is fueling the lead market outlook.

Strict government regulations over lead recycling in Europe

Rising expansion of data centers in tandem with modest growth rate of automotive sector in Europe is driving the Europe lead market growth. Various government entities across Europe and mobile network operators such as Ericsson, Deutsche Telekom and Telia Sonera are primarily focusing on improving the network grid across the region. This factor in tandem with growing inclination towards lead recycling and secondary production facilities are likely to help push the regional lead market trends.

Lack of electricity in Middle East & Africa

Growing inclination of regional industry players towards enticing private investors coupled with escalating investments in metal & mining industries is boosting the Middle East & Africa lead market outlook. As per estimates, Middle East & Africa lead market size is expected to grow by 5% through 2025.
