    Why use a price reporting agency?

    As the global metal scrap market experiences a generational shift, it makes it even harder for market participants to see what is ahead and forecast nickel scrap price movements. Supply and demand dynamics are being impacted by the need for more sustainable materials for a low-carbon future.

    The lingering effects of Covid-19 and the war in Ukraine have created unprecedented price volatility. This has placed huge pressure on contract negotiations. Business as usual is anything but ordinary and the metal markets have become almost impossible to read.

    By using a price reporting agency (PRA), you can:

    • Ensure that you have the prices you can use that reflect supply and demand conditions
    • Provide a reference for transactions in exchange-based contracts and trades
    • Give confidence to contract counterparties that the prices used are impartial
    • Improve efficiency when renegotiating contracts
    • Deliver instant and accessible data through an automated platform
    • Ensure trusted, critical short- and mid-term forecasts in a new generation of energy markets
