Potential for a nickel supply gap
Potential for a nickel supply gap? It's more a matter of when and not if the nickel price will improve. We attended the Paydirt Nickel Conference in Perth last week and the mood was upbeat thanks to the Indonesian nickel ban clouding the outlook over longer term cheap nickel supply. It's apparent that the Chinese pig iron producers have built reasonable stockpiles but that can only last so long before they'll need to re-stock. In the meantime the high barriers to entry for nickel projects and a lengthy approval process for Indonesia's new nickel smelting infrastructure could see a supply gap of 1-3 years.
