An economic recovery and rising inflation bodes well for industrial commodities but the metals with the greatest potential could depend on how ‘green’ the recovery is.
In part i of this series of 30 minute webinars, we will look at the auto industry’s increasing demand for platinum and palladium and how they are playing a critical role in making our world a greener place. These metals are key ingredients in the autocatalysts that generate the conversation of harmful pollutants into safer gases in electric and hybrid vehicles.
Across this series we will also consider the key forces fuelling industrial metals right now, which are:
+ Investors are seeking inflation hedges as prospects for prices are rising
+ Industrial demand is rising across US, Europe, and China as they recover from the deep COVID-19 recession
+ Fiscal and monetary stimulus are likely to see a rise in commodity-intensive infrastructure spending
+ In Europe a ‘green recovery’ is sought as the European Commission remains committed to its climate goals
Other webinars in this series:

+ Part iii: The demand for increasing robustness of grid infrastructure - Spotlight on Copper
+ Part iv: The metals that stand to win the vehicle energy transition
