Emerging PGM technologies

Opportunities and threats

In-depth research and analysis from an expert team

SFA (Oxford) is constantly monitoring emerging technologies for their potential impact on the shifting demand for PGMs and battery metals. Let us cut through the noise, and highlight the short to long-term price risk impacts for your business.

Where will PGMs go next?

Technology substitution is a feature of many industrial markets, where novel processes supersede existing processes, and can offer new opportunities for PGM use, or can destroy an existing PGM application. Of course, we also track intra-PGM substitution, frequently price-driven.

The powerful properties of the PGMs, with outstanding capability in areas such as catalysis, biocompatibility and durability in harsh environments, make them the go-to metals as new products and processes are developed. We highlight where the PGMs have the potential to disrupt existing markets and open up entirely new markets.
