Latest market developments

Latest market developments

  • Surge in raw materials prices…

    • HWWA overall index up 72% between December 2001 (latest trough) and April 2004

    • Industrial commodities and foodstuffs have surged more than energy prices

  • …due to the Chinese “heat wave”…

    • China, the world’s workshop, was in 2003 the world’s largest consumer of

      • coal, absorbing 40% of total world production

      • steel and nickel, absorbing 25% of total world production

      • aluminium, absorbing 19% of total world production

    • as natural resources become scarcer or uncompetitive in China

  • …highlighting capacity constraints worldwide

    • Lack of investment in basic industries: overinvestment in ICT to the expense of basic industries

    • Prices of raw materials were until recently quite low on an historical perspective, too low to boost investment

Aiece commodity group forecasts

AIECE Commodity Group forecasts

  • Factors which could push raw material prices down

    • In Europe: strong euro

    • Seasonnal factors (agricultural commodities)

  • Factors sustaining raw material prices

    • Strong growth expected in industrial demand in Asia, with China more and more decisive for prices

    • Supply deficit even on markets believed to be structurally in excess supply (steel for example)

    • Investment from pension funds away from bourses to commodity markets (speculation on the London Metal Exchange)

The environment for European raw materials purchasers has deteriorated sensibly, despite a strong euro; no significant downturn is expected in prices before 2006.
