The International Zinc Association executive director Stephen Wilkinson is confident in the zinc market’s potential.  Mr. Wilkinson believes that emerging markets will experience a great deal of growth in the future; skyrocketing demand for the metal.  Asian markets are key;  zinc consumption by China has  increased to 30 per cent of global supply, while other Asian countries consumed about 19 per cent of the world’s zinc .In total, emerging markets now consume about 44 per cent of the 11-million tonnes a year global supply, said Wilkinson.
