Nickel Production In Japan In 2010 Increased Compared To That In 2009
= Output Of Nickel Metal Increased By 32%, That Of Ferro-Nickel Also Increased By 11%
The production activities of nickel metal and ferro-nickel in Japan in January - November of 2010 as well as in a single month of November were known in last week. Accordingly, the quantities produced in Japan for the calender year (January - December) of 2010 are estimated to be 39,800 tons of nickel metal by an increase of 32% from that in the preceding year of 2009 and 65,500 tons of nickel in ferro-nickel by an increase of 11% from that in 2009.

In November of 2010, Japan produced <> nickel metal : 2,699 tons and <> ferro-nickel : 5,119 tons on nickel content base (corresponding to 26,987 tons on material base).

Reflecting the facts that Sumitomo Metal Mining increased their production of nickel metal in 2010 and Pacific Metals also increased their production of ferro-nickel in 2010, which had been supported by the revived demand for ferro-nickel from domestic market and the high level of its exports.

According to the monthly report concerning steel and nonferrous metals released by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, the quantities (nickel content base) of nickel metal and ferro-nickel produced in Japan in January - November of 2010 as well as in a single month of November were as per the table shown below ;
