After a highly volatile five years, the revenue of the Other Non-Ferrous Metal Production industry is expected to reach £1.7 billion at the close of 2015-16. The industry's revenue is forecast to grow at a modest compound annual rate of 2.1% over the five years through 2015-16, largely because the industry has been affected by fluctuations in nickel prices. Nickel is a key product of the industry, so shifts in nickel prices have a significant effect on revenue. Declining nickel prices over 2015 are expected to shrink revenue by 1.5% in the current year.
Firms in this industry produce non-ferrous metals other than aluminium, copper, lead, zinc and tin (and their alloys). The industry's major products are nickel and nickel alloys.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
