Concluding Thoughts

The metal industry had a particularly successful financial year in 2021–2022. The fundamental cause of the rally can be attributed to the liquidity present in markets around the world and the subsequent rise in foreign investments in India, the change in Chinese policies toward metals, and—most importantly—the extremely strong demand brought on by the opening up of economies and a shortage of supply as a result of logistical issues linked to COVID restrictions, driving up the price of metals as well as the price of other commodities.

Whatever the future may hold, the metal sector has grown to be a very appealing proposition for many investors and traders as a result of the recent price movement.
