New trends for Platinum Group Metals


The persistent global microchip shortage has had a dramatic impact on PGM prices, as many major vehicle manufacturers have been forced to cut back production; which, coupled with COVID-related disruptions to manufacturing activity, has virtually paused PGM demand and has sent prices plummeting, with rhodium the worst hit over recent weeks. 

How long will this trend persist?

Will the PGM prices recover? 


In this online presentation, Afriforesight’s multidisciplinary team will share new insights on the potential future for the PGMs, to help you navigate future risks and identify opportunities in the South African PGMs market.
