Find clarity in the nickel market with leading insights on developments, costs, and future capacity requirements.


The nickel supply and demand dynamic faces ever-growing uncertainty from resource nationalism, as well as from China's growth and its changing economic policies. High levels of inventory, both on and off exchanges, and an extended period of low prices have resulted in significant cost pressures on producers, which have caused mines to close and projects to stall. Our nickel market analysis brings clarity to this uncertainty and provides insight into how the nickel market will evolve in the future.
