Heavy metal: Recovering metal and commodity prices will help improve demand

The Nonferrous Metal Rolling and Alloying industry in Canada processes precious metals, nickel, zinc and other nonferrous metals, except for aluminum and copper, which operators purchase from primary producers or recover from scrap. In recent years, the industry has experienced tremendous swings in the metal prices, which comprise operators' primary inputs. Operators in this industry produce a range of rolled, drawn, extruded and alloyed nonferrous metal products for diverse applications, including jewellery, specialty steel production and transportation equipment manufacturing. As a result, demand for industry products is driven by the automotive, energy, aerospace and defence markets...read more.

Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • Prices for metals such as nickel fell dramatically during the first half of the reporting period
  • Falling revenue figures have prompted some companies to exit the industry
  • Demand for high performance products will continue its recent rebound
  • Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

    The Nonferrous Metal Rolling and Alloying industry in Canada has a moderate level of capital intensity. While industry participants use large-scale, sophisticated capital equipment for the rolling, drawing, extruding and alloying processes, companies rely heavily on skilled labour to operate the machinery and engage in research and development. For every dollar allocated to labour, participants spend an estimated $0.31 on capital equipment and machinery. Capital expenditures fluctuate with industry activity and are likely to decline in periods of reduced demand or volatile nonferrous metal prices.Capital intensity is expected to rise over the next five years as new technologies are introduced that improve product quality.

  • The process of adding one metal to another to form a blend sharing some of the properties of each component.
  • Drawing
  • A process for producing wire, bar or tube by pulling metal, increasing its length and reducing its diameter. Wire is typically pulled through a series of dies, or holes, of decreasing size.
  • Extruding
  • The process of forcing a solid and usually heated metal through an opening with the same shape as the desired end-product. A hydraulically operated ram is used to push the metal through the opening.
  • Ingot
  • Semiprocessed metal shapes that usually require further shaping, such as cold and hot working, cutting or milling, to produce a useful final product.
  • Nonferrous Metals
  • Metals other than iron and steel.
  • Primary Metals
  • Production of metals in their most basic form by processing, such as smelting or refining, mined ores.
  • Refractory Metals
  • A group of metals, including tungsten and tantalum, with particularly high melting points and excellent resistance to shock.
  • Rolling
  • A process that reduces the thickness of a piece of metal by passing it through successive rotating mills that compress the metal.
  • Secondary Metals
  • Reprocessing of useable metal recovered from recycled scrap
  • Semifabrication
  • The industrial processes for producing rolled products, extrusions, wire, tubes, forgings and castings.
