32% of Chinese zinc smelters surveyed by SMM are optimistic toward zinc prices and expect prices to rise to 14,000-15,000 yuan per tonne in the near future. 

Meanwhile, Vedanta Resources Plc said it would maintain its low-cost production of the metal, as well as continue with its plans for a $630 million zinc development in South Africa. 

Earlier Glencore Plc, the world’s largest commodities trading company— announced, in October that it plans to cut zinc output by a third rather than sell it cheaply;  suggesting that more producers may curb supply. 

JPMorgan Chase & Co. said October 16, 2015: "More capacity shut-downs are probably needed to tighten the market".

However, according to ICBC Standard Bank Plc: "Refined zinc production will exceed demand this year and in 2016".
