Stephen and Beresford provided an insightful takeaways on the palladium price outlook:

  • How is the palladium price likely to be impacted in these uncertain times?
  • Have we passed ‘peak palladium’?
  • How will pent-up auto demand (from semiconductor chip shortages) play out?
  • Do significant upward revisions in battery electric vehicle production indicate long-term palladium auto demand destruction?
  • When will the geographically diverse palladium supply growth overshoot medium-term demand?

In addition, Beresford presented the latest issue of The Palladium Standard. This highly sought-after publication provides SFA’s market view and collates all the key industry data and indicators for the past 12 months.
