Pedal to the metal: Industry revenue increases despite volatile metal prices

The Other Non-Ferrous Metal Production industry is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 1.1% over the five-year period through 2018-19, with revenue of £1.7 billion expected to be recorded at the close of 2018-19. This moderate growth masks fluctuations in nickel and titanium prices, which have driven volatility in the industry over the past five years. Production of these two metals is expected to account for more than four-fifths of the industry's revenue. Nickel prices have fluctuated over the period, but are currently significantly lower than at the beginning of the period, while titanium prices peaked in 2011 and declined over much of the period.Nickel prices have plummeted over the past five more.
