Provided here, for informational purposes, are graphs showing the 30 day trend in spot prices of copper, aluminum and zinc base metals. These base metals are primary influencers for wire and conduit marketplace price fluctuations. 

Commodity Insights – Nov. 23, 2021 (Source: Atkore)

Steel Update
• Steel costs were flat to down slightly for the first time in over a year – Hot Rolled +327%; Cold Rolled +240%
• Mill utilization improvement stalled and forecasted to drop due to scheduled plant maintenance programs through end of calendar year
• Demand outpacing current production output – Automotive, Appliance and Building Material Industries driving demand
• Transportation shortage of flatbed semi drivers and equipment has added to lead times and transportation costs throughout the supply chain

Copper Update
• Copper price spiked in mid-October due to compounding issues on the supply side: Surging energy prices and power curtailments in China, mass buying and stockpiling resulted in recent copper shortages.
• LME inventories are a critically low levels for the short term.  Logistic bottlenecks continue but are expected to ease in coming weeks.
• Mines are ramping up production now that labor disputes have been resolved in South America.
• Copper market fundamentals are changing as China’s economy slows and demand decreases.
• Analysts have revised their consensus forecast for next year’s copper market to a surplus of 82,000 ton from a deficit of 100,000 ton.
• The long-term forecast for the copper market remains in a foreseeable stage of deficit in the next 5-10 years.

PVC Update
• All producers have announced a $.05/# price increase for November 1.
• Supply of some minor ingredients, specifically heat stabilizer, are still very tight.
• PVC production plants are expected to report almost full production rates for October
• Export prices remain very high due to low supply and the government restriction of PVC production in China. This will keep domestic prices
elevated for foreseeable future.
• CDI forecasts price escalation through calendar Q1 2023.

Commodity Insights – Nov. 17, 2021

Copper: Predictions indicate that we will see $5 copper next year.  Factors affecting copper levels include daily amount of raw copper mined and ready for processing, demand, and national markets correcting their position with construction and expectations.  Please continue to be aware that resins for insulation, transportation, as well as other factors impact the finished wire product.  These types of factors can often lead to increases with the copper level being flat.

Aluminum: Wire request are strong and manufacturers are finding holes in inventory.  Some domestic suppliers can be 3 weeks out with made to order items.  

Conduit:  Metal pipe levels are softening.  PVC levels remain flat and lead times are slowly improving.  MC continues to be volatile with peripheral metals used to make this product.
