CPM Group's 2021 PGM market update and yearbook release event

Commentaries & Views

CPM Group will release its Platinum Group Metals Yearbook 2021 with a live webcast from New York City starting at 10:00 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, 13 July 2021.

The platinum group metals markets have continued to confound any number of market participants and observers. Palladium prices have moved higher over the a past year even as predictions that prices would fall have continued. Rhodium prices went parabolic, as CPM had suggested, and remain extremely volatile. Platinum prices have languished.

And all the while, groups marketing and promoting PGMs to investors have continued to distribute inaccurate and misleading information about what is happening in these metals’ markets.

This is not new. Long before the CPM Group research operation published the first PGM market report in May 1981 these markets have lived in a world full of misunderstanding. When CPM published its estimates of above ground inventories of platinum and palladium, no one else had such estimates and many questioned our data. Now all sorts of groups have all sorts of guesses as to how much metal exists in investor stocks. Their figures often reveal their positions in the markets. CPM Group’s data and analysis meanwhile continue to support accurate metals markets and price assessments.

CPM Group's Platinum Group Metals Yearbook 2021 addresses what really is happening in the platinum, palladium, rhodium, and minor PGM markets with the most comprehensive, unbiased, authoritative, and credible statistics and analysis.
