North America
In North America, the Hastelloy prices stagnated in the final quarter of 2022 amidst fluctuating demand outlook and raw material prices. Nickel had a turbulent year following the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine war in February, a short squeeze in March, and the fragmentation of physical nickel forms due to the rapid rise of class 2 and intermediate products. However, the macroeconomic-driven broader economic downturn has delayed the return of absolute stability. The LME decided to maintain the status quo in mid-Q4. Hastelloy producers claim that changes in alloy surcharges and mill raw material costs will be the primary factors influencing Hastelloy prices in 2022. As input demand fell and materials became more readily available at suppliers, inflationary pressures were relieved even further. As a result, Hastelloy C-276 prices for Ex Florida (USA) were fixed in December at USD 135070/MT.
