Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

After a highly volatile five years, the revenue of the Other Non-Ferrous Metal Production industry is expected to reach £1.1 billion at the close of 2016-17. The industry's revenue is forecast to fall at a compound annual rate of 10.7% over the five years through 2016-17, largely on account of fluctuations in nickel and titanium prices.
