The Turning Tide CPM Group’s PGM Projections to 2050 Platinum Group Metal Supply, Demand, and Price Forecasts






The Tide Is Turning for platinum group metal fabrication demand.

  • The platinum, palladium, and rhodium markets have been dominated by their use in automotive catalytic converters for half of a century. Use of these metals went from non-existence to the major use of all three metals, accounting for 47%, 66%, and 85% of fabrication demand in recent years.
  • Now demand is contracting and is forecast to continue declining for the next quarter century and beyond. This is expected to create a great deal of imbalance in these platinum group metals’ markets.
  • During such times it is extremely important to have reliable data and analyses for decision making from an unbiased independent source.


CPM Group’s PGM Projections To 2050 report provides detailed statistics and analysis of the historical and current platinum, palladium, and rhodium markets, supported by quantitative and qualitative analysis and statistics through 2050. A 2023 update was released in December.
