Consumption is set to increase in China as the government announced support measures to boost the covid-hit economy and lifted most of the health restrictions in Shanghai. At the same time, concerns of supply-chain disruptions persist as the war rages in Eastern Europe and more sanctions are imposed on Russia, the metal’s top exporter. Also, South Africa’s platinum production is set to fall amid risks of prolonged strikes as workers protest for wage-negotiations.
