Investment in large integrated petrochemical complexes in China can continue to benefit from the demand for platinum in chemical and petroleum refining applications. China is the world 's largest maker of hard disc drives (HDDs), which is successful in producing the tremendous market for metals in the platinum category. In addition, in the Asia-Pacific platinum group metals industry, India and ASEAN countries are now becoming the key drivers for demand growth. In the expansion of the global platinum group metals industry, the tremendous growth of the Asia-Pacific region is very instrumental.

Platinum Group Metals Market Drivers

Growing demand for platinum, palladium, and ruthenium across various end users

The rising demand in the electronics industry for platinum, palladium, and ruthenium is a key driver of growth in the metals sector for the platinum category. Growing demand in the automobile sector for catalytic converters has driven steady revenue growth in key regional markets. Significant demand for platinum group metals, especially platinum, has also been seen in the electrical and electronics industries. The metal is being used in autocatalysts, watches, and chemicals more and more. The appeal of platinum group metals is stoked by a variety of properties such as high temperature stability, exceptional corrosion resistance, and conductivity.

Platinum Group Metals Market Challenges

The high cost factor constraints the growth of the market

The high costs involved in the production are expected to hinder the growth of the Platinum Group Metals Market. Owing to reduced demand for diesel engines, which are dependent on platinum for catalytic conversion, platinum prices have suffered in recent years. For petrol engines, which are more reliant on palladium and rhodium, demand is increasing. As the commodity is in surplus supply due to reduced industrial demand, this has affected platinum values.
