Increasing investments in hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are expected to drive the growth of the platinum market size. Compared to internal combustion engines, fuel cell electric vehicles use twice the amount of platinum. Hydrogen is used as a fuel in fuel cell vehicles, and platinum catalysts the chemical reaction with oxygen in the air, producing water and electricity. The electric motor uses the electricity produced, and water is released through the exhaust, achieving zero emissions.

The negative effects of COVID-19 persisted at the beginning of 2020, but the widespread relaxation of restrictive pandemic control policies, coupled with government stimulus measures, saw an increase in global economic activity. With mines ramping up to full production, refined processing capacity returning to more natural levels, and demand in the automotive and jewelry segments experiencing sharp V-shaped recoveries, platinum market size is expected to increase drastically.

Demand for platinum in medical devices and cancer treatment is expected to increase the platinum market size growth. Based on research, we continue to see growth in platinum-based active pharmaceutical ingredients for cancer treatment for both local and export markets.

Although the COVID impact can be seen on the Platinum market, the effect was significantly lower than anticipated. Market players expect the demand for platinum to increase significantly due to its use not only in the development of green hydrogen but also in fuel cells for hybrid fuel cell vehicles (FCEVs).

The need to continue the transition away from the internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles to electric ones, both battery and fuel cell, is another pandemic-driven development beneficial to the platinum market. In 2020, as automotive CO2 mitigation strategies involve a large range of diesel and diesel hybrid vehicles, we will likely see increased platinum demand.

Inquire for Customization: 


In 2019, Asia Pacific held the largest platinum market share in terms of revenue. Due to automotive manufacturing powerhouses regions, such as India, China and Japan, the region is expected to hold a leading position over the forecast period. Moreover, the introduction of new regulatory standards, such as BS-VI in the Indian automotive sector, is likely to force manufacturers to reduce contaminants’ emissions and increase fuel quality. Strong demand for platinum as an investment commodity drives the platinum market size in the Asia Pacific region. 

North America and Europe are expected to hold significant market share due to therising demand for diesel hybrid vehicles and investment prospects due to the commodity’s declining prices.
