Nickel: Market Outlook to 2018, 13th Edition 2014

Roskill's 13th report on Nickel has been published. If you're involved with Nickel in any way, this report will help you make the right decisions.

Prices have staged a dramatic recovery as the market appears set to plunge into a supply deficit. New projects in Indonesia and elsewhere may receive frantic interest. As prices are spiking, stainless steel mills will speed up their search for alternative feedstock, such as stainless scrap and even nickel cathode. Meanwhile, price increases may reinvigorate substitution of nickel and eventually even of stainless steel.

  • Essential market intelligence for successful business planning
  • Detailed survey of production and processing in 44 countries
