Our main focus is on the industries of stainless steels, alloy steels, nickel-base alloys, nickel, chrome, stainless steel scrap and other alloying metals like molybdenum, etc. Within these industries we cover the markets from mining to end-use, compiling an overall market view from origin to final application.
Roskill Pariser regularly publishes in-depth market reports analysing emerging trends in metal markets. These reports include annual chrome and nickel reports, frequent reports on the state of the stainless steel scrap market, and occasional topical reports, such as on powder metallurgy. These reports are available from Roskill’s website and are listed under their respective products.
Consulting Assignments and Project Development
Over the years, Pariser has assisted dozens of companies through in-depth market research and assisted the successful development of stainless steel, nickel and chrome projects. These consulting assignments provide an assessment of the market tailored to the needs of the client and its partners, to help identify strategic risks and opportunities. Pariser’s involvement comes with a long-standing reputation for excellence and understanding of the industry.
Presentations and Seminars
Members of the Roskill Pariser team are regular speakers at industry conferences and are available for speaking assignments, both for larger audiences as well as for in-house executive briefings or discussions. Such seminars provide a unique opportunity for discussion and exchange of thoughts and can provide unparalleled access to industry insights and the ability to drill down on the issues that matter most.
The stainless steel industry is characterised by over 300 different grades, each with unique properties, necessitating a detailed level of understanding to analyse the industry. Pariser tracks production in 22 countries by grade and product form, collects financial and production data of 20 of the largest producers, and monitors trade and intensity of use trends in some 70 countries. Roskill Pariser provides detailed industry analysis, demand outlook and price forecasts for the stainless steel industry.
Stainless Steel Scrap
Stainless steel has often been referred to as one of the metals of the future, owing to its excellent potential for recycling and reuse. Trends in the use, availability and price of stainless steel scrap are of immediate importance to producers of stainless steel mills, as well as suppliers of raw materials, whose material may compete with secondary feedstocks. The market for scrap is, however, opaque, but decades of experience has allowed Roskill Pariser to assemble a solid knowledge base on the market.
Nickel and Nickel-Base Alloys
Nickel is one of the many hidden metals that our society could not live without. While over two-thirds of nickel is accounted for by its use in stainless steel, other important uses include plating, nickel base-alloys and batteries. Through these applications, nickel is an essential component in building and construction, chemical processing, aerospace, and electric vehicles. Roskill Pariser tracks production of mined and refined nickel by company and product type, and has long-standing expertise in the analysis of the end use markets of nickel.
Chromium and Ferrochrome
Without the anti-corrosive properties of chromium, stainless steels would not exist. Like nickel, the main use of chromium is in stainless steel, but it has similarly wide-ranging applications in chromium chemicals, foundry sands and other alloy metals. Roskill Pariser tracks production of chromium ore and ferrochrome in more than 35 producers, along with production costs of some 30 smelters. Pariser also provides short-term and long-term outlooks for supply, demand and prices.
