Webinar of WiPGMs Asia Chapter – PGM Supply and Demand Factors – An Asian Markets Perspective

Date: 12 December 2022
Time: 9:00 pm Tokyo/8:00 China/ 12:00 UK
Title: PGM Supply and Demand Factors – An Asian Markets Perspective

Both Japan and China are significant consumers of platinum group metals. During this session we unpack two key demand areas for platinum. Given the geographical concentration of mine supply, historically these regions are very reliant on imports, however, there is a long established recycling business in Japan and a growing recycling industry in China. Our panellist will unpack these aspects and discuss the opportunities and threats for PGM demand in the future.
