The production costs of NPI plants still stood high as the electricity and coke prices were still at a high level though the coal prices regulation was quite effective, plus that only a small amount of nickel ore saw price declines.

As such, NPI prices remained in premiums over pure nickel, depressing the demand of steel mills. Euro zone manufacturing activity remained strong last month but was curtailed by supply chain bottlenecks and logistical problems which sent input costs soaring, a survey showed.
