Current Scenario of Commodity Markets in China

China is one of the leading world economies. There is a possibility of commodities prices going up in 2019. But the China commodity market is dealing with an unprecedented number of disruptions including China and USA change in tariffs. As the world’s biggest buyer of natural resources made the presence of China felt on demand for crude oil, iron ore, coal, and purified natural gas. China’s extreme demand for major commodities is likely to remain the most determining factor influencing demand and supply in 2019.

Due to constraints in domestic gas inputs in China and the capacity limitations for pipeline imports, this means that liquified natural gas imports will increase in 2019 even if the price remains high. Secondly, China’s increasing use of natural gas has resulted in a decrease in coal import in China.

China has now boosted domestic production, this means that imports may find the going tougher this year. There is a possibility of iron ore markets in China will receive an increasing quality premium high-quality grade ore, which will, in turn, boost the fortunes of some producers but affect those in India which are majorly known for low-grade ore. Despite the efforts of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies to control the supply of oil to China, the oil demand is dominated by China.

Future of Gold Price Demand and Supply

Demand and supply are basic aspects of economics. Demand and supply of a commodity or goods like gold can be determined with several factors such as; the prevailing market price, income of an individual, preferences, and choices, season, age and gender among many other factors. Of late we have witnessed a peculiar trend in the gold market where there is a decrease in the prices of gold despite the presence of high gold demand. This occurrence is against the law of demand which states that “The high the demand of a commodity the higher its market prices”. Although recent predictions have possed presence of high demand for gold.

We will look at factors that majorly affects the gold market to determine how each is likely to increase or decrease the price of gold. The primary factors that are likely to affect the price of gold this year or in the future are;

  • Demand for physical gold
  • Central Bank Buying
  • Demand for gold ETFs
  • New Mine Supply
  • Technical indicators
  • The US dollar among many other factors

Increase in physical demand for gold does not always increase the price of gold but it increases the interest in gold. High ETFs supply will definitely increase the prices of gold, and we have witnessed a tremendous in ETFs in the recent past. Central banks around the globe hold golds in their reserves. When they feel they want more they buy more thus increasing the demand for gold. With a constant increase in demand with no new supply, there will always be an increase in gold prices since the market supply cannot match its demand.

Therefore given that most factor that determines the prices of gold are most likely to increase then the prices of gold are also most likely to increase year in, year out.
