Platinum market to see supply deficit of 336K ounces in 2020

Supply and demand dynamics in the platinum market continue to tighten as the global economy deals with the fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the latest research from the World Platinum Investment Council (WPIC). In its quarterly outlook report, the WPIC said that supply for the precious metal dropped 19% during the second quarter as vehicle sales and industrial activity ground because of the coronavirus’s spread.

However, production disruptions in South Africa due to COVID-19 lockdown measures and refinery issues caused mine supply to drop 35% between April and June. In its report, the WPIC said that it now forecasts that the platinum market will have a supply deficit of 336,000 ounces, down significantly from the previously estimated surplus of 247,000 ounces. The report said that platinum-backed exchange-traded products saw net inflows of 122,000 ounces in the second quarter, up significantly from outflows of 213,000 ounces reported in the first quarter. Raymond said that one trend they are seeing in the marketplace is gold investors paying closer attention to platinum as a value play in the precious metals market. Platinum prices are currently trading near a 1.5 month low; October platinum futures last traded at 898 an ounce. Platinum’s discount to gold is at unprecedented levels as gold prices trade above $1,900 an ounce. Kitco
