Headlines and Quotes








Palladium is typically produced as a by-product metal from platinum mines. According to the CPM Group, most of the world's palladium is produced in Russia (35%), the Republic of South Africa (34%) and North America (12%). Global supply of palladium increased by approximately 3% in 2006 (the last year for which data is available) to 8,437,000 ounces. Of this total, mine production accounted for approximately 7,030,000 ounces (an increase of 3% from the prior year) and secondary recovery of palladium accounted for approximately 1,407,000 ounces.


Global fabrication demand for palladium (excluding investor demand) increased by 11.0% in 2006 to approximately 7,722,000 ounces, primarily as a result of the strong performance of the industries that use palladium and the relative attractiveness and affordability of palladium compared to substitutes (such as platinum, rhodium and gold). The year 2006 represented the third consecutive year of double-digit growth in palladium demand, and the fifth consecutive year of growth in palladium demand overall.

Approximately 50% of the global demand for palladium in 2006 stemmed from the automotive industry. The majority of the balance of palladium demand in 2006 stemmed from electronics (16%), jewellery (4%), Chinese demand for electronics and jewellery (10%), dental applications (13%) and other chemical applications (5%).



Business Summary

The primary use for palladium in the automotive industry is in the manufacture of catalytic converters, which reduce harmful vehicle exhaust emissions by converting them into less harmful carbon dioxide, nitrogen and water vapour. Palladium, platinum and rhodium are the primary components in catalytic converters. The demand for palladium in the automotive industry has more than doubled in the last ten years due to the larger number of vehicles being manufactured and the tightening of emissions standards that require the use of catalytic converters. Catalytic converters are now included in over 96 percent of new cars. With the palladium price currently substantially below that of platinum, automakers have a strong financial incentive to switch their catalyst formulations for gasoline vehicles from those based on platinum to palladium.

Palladium is also used in the manufacture of jewellery and may be used either on its own or as an alloy in "white gold". In the electronics industry, palladium is used mainly in the production of multi-layer ceramic capacitors, which are used in electrical components for cellular telephones, personal and notebook computers, fax machines and home electronics. In the dental industry, palladium is widely used in alloys for dental restoration. Additionally, various chemical applications use palladium, including the manufacture of paints, adhesives, fibers and coatings. Palladium is also used in the manufacture of polyester.
