The PGMs Industry Day



 

 

2022 PGMs Industry Day

For Producers, Investors & Users of PGMs

Wednesday 6 April 2022
Country Club Johannesburg, Auckland Park & Online

08h45-17h00

The fifth edition of the PGMs Industry Day was held at the Johannesburg Country Club Auckland Park and online on 6 April 2022. The PGMS Industry Day has established itself as a highly influential platform representing the views of the industry’s major stakeholders and draws representatives from local and international mining companies, investors, government and end users of platinum group metals. And this year’s event, our first in-person event for over 2 years, certainly didn’t disappoint!

One of the highlights included five CEOs from the world’s leading PGMs producers in individual conversations with Sandra du Toit, Energy & Natural Resources Leader, EY Africa, our lead sponsor. Anglo American Platinum, Impala Platinum, Royal Bafokeng Platinum, Sibanye-Stillwater and Tharisa Minerals all gave very candid and revealing insights into their perspectives on the PGMs sector and plans for the future.  Another highlight was an address from the Honourable Minister Gwede Mantashe. We were also honoured to have Stephen Forrest from SFA Oxford give a keynote address in person on his long-term forecast for the PGMs industry before he retires later this year.


Other international and local speakers from investors, advisory companies and end users discussed a wide variety of topics including:

  • Short-term forecasts and outlook for the PGMs industry and basket price
  • International investors’ current perspectives on the PGMs industry
  • Internal Combustion Engine vs FCEVs vs BEVs – which will be the winner?
  • The roadmap for the hydrogen economy
  • Wider applications for PGMs – where are the main opportunities?

The PGMs Industry Day will return next year for its 6th Edition. We look forward to seeing you there!
