Get the latest insights on price movement and trend analysis of Platinum in different regions across the world (Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa).
Traders sharply reduced their price forecasts for platinum and palladium after a chip shortage forced automakers to reduce production of vehicles containing the metals in 2021.
Automobile manufacturers account for approximately 40% of platinum demand and 80% of palladium demand, with platinum and palladium embedded in exhaust systems to neutralise harmful emissions. The chip shortage grew worse over the summer of 2021 and is expected to continue this year as well.
It contributed to platinum prices falling from a seven-year high of 1,336.50 USD/oz in February to as low as 901.30 USD/oz in May. It was anticipated that platinum would average 1,000 USD/oz in the final three months of 2021 and 1,110 USD/oz in 2022.
In appearance, Platinum is silvery, whitish-gray, malleable, ductile metal. It is shipped as a finely divided powder (platinum black), as a sponge, as well as particles deposited on a supporting material like alumina. It has a strong catalytic activity in different forms. It is highly resistant to corrosion and is widely used as jewels.
