Nickel ore prices are expected to continue falling for the foreseeable future, Shanghai Metals Market predicts.

SHANGHAI, Apr. 22 (SMM) – Nickel ore prices are expected to continue falling for the foreseeable future, Shanghai Metals Market predicts. 

“The price of Philippine nickel ore, especially high-grade ore, will continue falling due to supply glut,” SMM’s nickel analyst said at SMM Nickel Summit on Apr. 17-18. 

Nickel ore inventories at China’s major ports are enough for more than half-year’s consumption, the analyst noted at the Summit. 

New arrivals of shipments from the Philippines have been reported recently following the end of monsoon season there. 

“The downward room of medium-grade ore will be relatively small as the price is nearing costs,” the analyst added.
