overview

As energy companies move towards batteries for large-scale storage and the automotive industry prepares for the next generation of electric vehicles to hit the market, the nickel industry has seen a surge in demand. This, combined with the traditional steel market continuing to strengthen, has resulted in the nickel industry in the Asia Pacific region hurtling towards a new era.

The Asia Pacific Nickel Conference proposes two days of in-depth discussions around the current changes and challenges affecting the nickel market.

Topics will include:

  • Regional & international market forecasts
  • The outlook for stainless steel
  • The impact of renewable energy on nickel
  • Mining case studies
  • The changing face of the industry
