The Japan rhodium market is expected to exhibit a growth rate (CAGR) of 6.6% during 2023-2028. The escalating demand from automotive sector, the implementation of stringent environmental regulations and emission standards, the increasing investments in precious metals, and the growing preference for electric vehicles (EV) represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Rhodium is a rare and precious metal that belongs to the platinum group of metals (PGMs). It is a hard and durable metal with a high melting point of around 1,964 degrees Celsius. It is highly resistant to corrosion, even in harsh chemical environments and has excellent reflectivity and is often used as a plating material for jewelry and decorative items. helps reduce harmful emissions by catalyzing the conversion of pollutants such as nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), and hydrocarbons into less harmful substances. It is also used in the chemical industry for catalytic reactions and as a coating material for electrical contacts to enhance conductivity and prevent corrosion. Moreover, rhodium's high reflectivity, corrosion resistance, and lustrous appearance make it a popular choice for plating jewelry and decorative items. Rhodium plating provides a bright, white surface that enhances the durability and shine of precious metals like silver, gold, and platinum. Besides, rhodium has gained attention as an investment metal due to its rarity and high market value. It is traded in global financial markets and is considered a precious metal alongside gold, silver, and platinum.
Japan Rhodium Market Trends:
The market is primarily driven by the rising product adoption in the automotive industry. The automotive industry is a major driver of rhodium demand in Japan. Rhodium is widely used as a catalyst in automotive catalytic converters to reduce harmful emissions. In addition, the implementation of stringent environmental regulations and emission standards are driving the demand for rhodium. The government imposes strict limits on vehicle emissions to reduce air pollution and improve air quality. Rhodium's exceptional catalytic properties make it a crucial component in catalytic converters, enabling the efficient conversion of harmful pollutants into less harmful substances. Besides, the growing global trend toward electric vehicles has an impact on rhodium demand in Japan. While EVs do not require catalytic converters like traditional internal combustion engines, rhodium is still used in fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) and hybrid vehicles that utilize internal combustion engines. Moreover, rhodium's status as a precious metal makes it an attractive investment option. Investors and financial institutions in Japan are allocating a portion of their portfolios to precious metals for diversification and as a hedge against inflation and economic uncertainties. Furthermore, rhodium finds applications beyond automotive catalysts, such as in the chemical, glass, and electronics industries. These industries require rhodium for specific processes, including chemical synthesis, glass production, and electronics manufacturing. The growth and performance of these industries can influence the demand for rhodium in Japan.
