Abstract

The world nickel market has slowly evolved from domination by the International Nickel Company (Inco) into a competitive structure. Presently, the nickel industry is characterized by product surpluses and low prices. The change in structure and the current state of the industry has resulted from the price strategy followed by the leading nickel producers, a general decline in market development expenditures, certain characteristics of developing nickel producing capacity and several unforeseen events. Examination of these factors can help in developing policy options aimed at improving the future of the industry.
