U.S. Export of Nickel Scrap in July 2015
= Up by 8% from prior month, which is mainly due to increased export to Canada =
According to the statistics released by the U. S. Department of Commerce, the export result of nickel scrap in July 2015 was 2,044 tons, up by 8.3% from 1,888 tons in the prior month, and the average export unit price per ton was US$3,723.03, up by 6.3% from the prior month.

In July, the export volumes to Japan and Australia decreased drastically, but the exports to Canada, Mexico and Sweden increased, which resulted in the total export volume being up.

LME nickel price dropped consecutively in June and July, and the one in July was down by 9.2% from the prior month. However, the increase in the average export unit price was largely due to the average export unit price to Canada which comprised 72.6% of the total export being up by 21.3% from the prior month. This was because the export item to Canada was shifted to nickel scrap with a higher nickel content.

The breakdown by destination is as shown in the table below.
