迫在眉睫的供应缺口呼唤新一批铜矿项目

迫在眉睫的供应缺口呼唤新一批铜矿项目

2021.11.29 铜广泛用于建筑、发电和输电,使其成为民用基础设施更新的关键金属。 Roskill 预测,在人口和GDP增长、城市化和电力需求的推动下,到2035年世界铜消费总量将超过4300万吨。 这十年,随着全球对汽车电气化的推动,对铜的需求即将起飞,因为典型的电动汽车 (EV) 使用的金属大约是普通内燃机 (ICE) 汽车的四倍。 咨询公司 AlixPartners 估计,目前仅占全球汽车总销量2%的电动汽车到2030年将占总销量的24%。据预测,到2025年,对电动汽车的投资总额可能达到3300亿美元。 为了在2030年使美国新车总数的一半成为电动汽车,总统拜登已经呼吁政府支出1740亿美元来推动电动汽车的发展,其中包括1000亿美元的消费者激励措施。 这些措施肯定会给全球铜业带来压力。该行业自2000年代以来就已经遭受多年投资不足的困扰,导致缺乏正在开发的新矿。 彭博新能源财经表示,20年后,铜矿商需要将全球铜产量翻一倍才能满足对电动汽车30%渗透率的需求 — 从目前的每年2000万吨增加到4000万吨。 电气化不仅包括汽车,还包括卡车、火车、运货车、建筑设备以及电动自行车、摩托车和踏板车等两轮车辆;所以铜的使用量肯定会高于预期。 充电站和可再生能源也需要铜,特别是用于太阳能发电的光伏电池和风力涡轮机。 CRU集团的数据显示,到2030年的10年内,全球绿色能源部门的铜消耗量将增长五倍。 全球能源咨询公司 Wood Mackenzie 表示,总体而言,为了实现社会基础设施的电气化并实现1.5˚C的全球变暖轨迹,未来二十年将需要大约50万亿美元的投资。 资料来源: Wood Mackenzie 资料来源: Wood Mackenzie 根据 WoodMac 较为宽松的加速能源转型-2(AET-2)方案,这与将前工业化时代以来全球气温上升限制在2°C是一致的,在未来20年中,大约需要1900万吨铜来供应能源转型,这意味着额外的供应增加了85%(参见上图)。 这是当今生产商必须克服的挑战,不仅是现在,而且是在未来二十年甚至更长的时间里。 供不应求 据 S&P Global Market Intelligence (标准普尔全球市场情报) 预测,由于项目短缺,从长期来看,供应将滞后于需求。 尽管这家总部位于纽约的分析公司预计2021年和2025年的矿产铜产量将从2020年的211.6万吨分别增至218.7万吨和261.4万吨,但这并不能阻止2025年后的供应缺口。 现有铜矿(包括精矿和溶剂萃取电积)的产量预计将在2021-2025年以1.0%的复合年增长率增长,但由于矿石品位下降和矿山关闭,2026-2020年的复合年增长率将下降至4.7%。 这些矿山包括嘉能可 (Glencore) 拥有33.75%的 Antamina(必和必拓 (BHP) 33.75%、泰克资源 (Teck Resources) 22.5%、三菱 (Mitsubishi) 10%)、Codelco 的 Radomiro Tomic 和泰克的 Highland Valley。 因此,现有运营矿山的产量 — 不考虑那些正在启动、项目扩张或矿山重启的资产 — […]

This could be a sign of deteriorating sentiment. One of the many head-shaking phenomena over the past eighteen months or so has been the fact that junk bonds have held in so well. I guess we shouldn’t have been that surprised though as the Fed has used its historic money counterfeiting scheme to effectively underwrite indebted corporates that would, under normal circumstances, have gone out […]
