Future Facing Commodities Forum 2024 – Online (sessions available in APAC, EMEA, & US timezones) 

2023 has, as expected, delivered weaker margins for producers of most future facing commodities. Global monetary tightening has weighed on demand for metals and the pervasive supply chain disruptions of 2022 have dissipated, if not completely disappeared. The renewables and EV sectors, critical pieces of metals demand, have fared reasonably well, but are by no means immune from the global slowdown, and are facing other headwinds of their own.   

As we move into 2024, much uncertainty remains. Conflict, energy security and China’s economic prospects still stalk markets, and clarity around timing of a recovery remains elusive. Meanwhile miners face new levels of regulation and costs. To make sense of these seismic shifts, and their impact on the key commodities that underpin the energy transition, Wood Mackenzie is pleased to announce that its Future Facing Commodities Forum will be taking place once again.
