Chromium

Outlook to 2029, 15th Edition

The chrome ore and ferrochrome markets have closely followed developments in China, where increasing ferrochrome capacity (requiring imported feed) has outpaced other producing regions. Chrome ores experienced extremely high prices in 2016 and nearly two years of increased volatility, which encouraged a persistent over-supply that has kept chrome ore prices…

Nickel

Outlook to 2028, 15th Edition

Owing to a slowdown in demand growth and an extended stainless steel destocking cycle, nickel prices hit multi-year lows in 2016.  Prices started to recover in 2017 and improved further over the course of 2018, averaging over $13,600/t in the first nine months of the year.  However, nickel prices are…

NiobiumPre-order

Outlook to 2029, 15th Edition

Demand for ferroniobium has increased considerably over the past two years. A tight vanadium market coupled with the introduction of new rebar standards in China caused ferrovanadium prices to spike in 2018. This prompted unexpected levels of substitution. Chinese steel makers started to use ferroniobium in Grade 3 rebar which,…

Silicon & Ferrosilicon

Global Industry, Markets & Outlook 2019

Silicon and ferrosilicon are manufactured using broadly the same process and are physically similar, but are very divergent in terms of their applications. Silicon metal is used in the manufacture of aluminium alloys, silicones and polysilicon, whereas at least 90% of ferrosilicon is used in the production of iron and steel.

Vanadium

Outlook to 2028, 17th Edition

Vanadium prices increased dramatically in 2018 as the market moved into structural deficit. On the supply side, a reduction in global feedstock capacity, dwindling global inventories, feedstock tightness in China, and trade issues contributed to price rises. On the demand side, the introduction of new rebar regulations in China, designed…
