The price of Inconel in the United States in December were still low due to increasing prices overflow, decreasing needs, and the uncertainties of various markets. Some characteristics such as holidays that fall in winter, rough weather, and uncertainty about authorities ‘policies and the electric vehicle sector affected negatively the market. In response to cheaper competitors, the US Inconel industries changed over investments to China; adjusting domestic price accordingly to become more international competitive. Therefore, the most recent Inconel C-276 DEL price from the USA for the last quarter in USD was considered as $52,420 per metric ton which manifests the dynamic environment of this market and the suppliers’ attempts to tackle difficult circumstances.

In Japan, in the month of December, the prices of Inconel declined due to the redundant being in the trading during that time and weaker demand during the time in overseas. Also, Inconel is surplus in Japanese warehouses. Especially because of the Red Sea route disruptions and lower demand in the car manufacturing branches due to the decrease in general industrial output, on the eve of the crash, the stainless-steel exports were also losing ground. Japan's severe trade hardship and reduced client started to be the biggest challenge for the country's steel industry. And therefore, the current quarter-quitting price of Alloy 600 Sheet in Japan (Osaka) is USD 43,912/MT (metric ton), highlights a great complexity in the market and the energy sector('s) attempts to operate in such hostile conditions.

The end of the year 2023 observed Inconel spot market prices decreasing in Germany because of oversupply, lower demand and rising production costs. Concerns resulted in a company Arvedi Acciai Speciali Terni to stop its production pause. The ArcelorMittal's Torero plant in Belgium has created a method of removing carbon by changing waste wood into bio-coal. The reduction of the German Government funding for the electric vehicles in the month of December also affected EV sales as well as the sector of Inconel. The demand for Conventional Inconel was seeing a declining trend while buyers were searching for green steel industry those are willing to reduce their carbon footprint. The most recent price for Alloy 600 Sheet Ex Werdohl in Germany at the end of the quarter index was USD 36,864/MT.

By the end of December, Inconel remained stable in the UAE spot market, owing to ample supplies, though a little interrupted by trade disruptions in the Shipping Route. Concerns rose with reduced imports from the Asian manufacturers due to the Houthis’ Rebel Group attacks which had continuously disrupted the supply chains. The downstream industries, such as equipment and transport industries, still suffered from the uncertainties level caused by the changes in trade rates and macroeconomic factors, worsened the market sentiment. Despite these problems the today's worth of alloy 600 sheet ex Dubai in UAE is about USD 42,832 per metric ton, which shows the robustness of the market despite the headwinds and the uncertainties.

Inconel Price Trend

Inconel Market Analysis

The global Inconel market size reached 23.3 Thousand Tonnes in 2023. By 2032, IMARC Group expects the market to reach 31.5 Thousand Tonnes, at a projected CAGR of 3.40% during 2023-2032.

  • Industrial consumption and infrastructure projects are the leading factors that support the Inconel market all over the world. For instance, as per U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) reports, Inconel is a crucial input in aerospace, construction, and energy industries, combined with the high demand for nickel material in the industrial applications, shows that the world needs alloys with top performance. Infrastructural projects such as airports, bridges and power plants require materials that have distinct features of high strength, excellent corrosion resistance and temperature stability. These features are characteristics of Inconel alloys. As governments channel investment into infrastructure to facilitate economic upturn and modernization endeavors, the demand for Inconel is expected to grow at similar rates, attracting new market players and creating space for them to participate.
  • Geopolitical strains and trade policies affect the Inconel market trends. Political trade war and tariffs imposed by governments on one side or the other tend to hamper global supply chains and distort the availability and prices of inputs and finished goods. For instance, as per the World Trade Organization (WTO), the rise of trade tensions between the major economies results in an increased level of uncertainty and volatility in the commodity markets that include Inconel alloys. Besides that, geopolitical situations which involve sanctions, conflicts or changes in diplomatic relations can influence trade routes and access to key resources that in turn might affect the dynamics in the market. As a result, the companies that comprise the Inconel marketplace need to pay attention to the geopolitical situation and modify their strategies in order to minimize risks and seize the opportunities that arise as a result.
  • Technological advancements and innovations stimulate the growth of the Inconel market. Investment in government-based research and development initiatives provides a drive for innovative materials science and engineering homogenesis in the manufacture of new alloy compositions, production processes and usage skills. For instance, programs such as the Horizon 2020 by the European Union are designed to support cooperative research projects toward the advancement of materials technology which includes alloys with high performance Inconel. Such advancements enable Inconel to meet the escalating requirements of the industry, for instance, the high operating temperatures, the enhanced corrosion resistance, and the superior mechanical properties. Additionally, technological advancements are toppling up new application areas for Inconel alloys into various industries that weren't even imagined before like aerospace and defense industry, renewable energy, automotive, and medical devices.
