In order to assist our customers, such as PEM electrolyser manufacturers, PEM Fuel Cell manufacturers and sensor manufacturers, we have put together the below information so you can have a snapshot of the trend in the market over the last month and the last 3 months:


Platinum - Platinum price crashed back in Feb/Mar from >$1000/Toz to lows of of around $620/Toz.  Since this time it has climbed slightly to around $800/Toz.  Last month however saw a slight decrease overall in price.  Platinum prices tend to fluctuate more than the other PGM's due to its use in jewellery.


Iridium - Iridium tends to have a much more stable price as it is used only in industrial applications.  There has been a upswing in the price in recent months from $1480/Toz to $1640/Toz.  This is due to mines being affected by Covid-19 restrictions
