The Platinum Price Is Determined by Both Industrial & Investment Demand
Approximately 83 percent of the world’s Platinum supply is concentrated from mines in northern South Africa (75 per cent of global supply) which is home to the Bushveld Complex, considered to be the largest resource for PGMs in the world, and southern Zimbabwe (8% of global supply). Extraction is not only very expensive but also extremely challenging considering the super-heated magma mines 2 to 3 kilometres deep below the earth’s surface.
Platinum has a silver appearance and is extremely hard. While jewellers value its malleability, it’s also ductile, rigid, dense, and extremely unreactive.
Platinum is first and foremost considered an industrial metal. The greatest yearly demand comes from automotive industry (roughly 40%), which is used predominately in the catalytic to reduce harmful emissions. Further industrial demand (roughly 25%) across many applications from petroleum, chemical refining catalysts, computer industry, fertilisers to pacemakers. Jewellery demand is another 30% of demand, although overall demand curves are changing rapidly.
Platinum ranks as a green metal in the new global clean air and green energy production environment, with Hydrogen’s new growing role leading a very strong charge into platinum demand.
Platinum prices presently are determined in large part by auto sale production numbers. Increasing requirements by pollution legislation is requiring automakers to raise the weightings of platinum, raising demand quickly. With the elevated prices of Palladium, substitution demand into Platinum is also occurring.
IPM Group is expecting dynamic platinum price appreciation over the next few years.
