Industry insiders express frustration over the limitations and allocations imposed on nickel ore quotas in Indonesia, hindering the efficient flow of approved ores due to logistic constraints. Sources from Indonesian nickel pig iron (NPI) producers highlight concerns about the quotas falling short of demand in 2024, exacerbated by preferences shown towards state-owned enterprises.

Indonesian state-controlled mining firm AnekaTambang (Antam) has set ambitious targets for nickel ore production and sales in 2024, aiming to significantly increase output compared to the previous year. However, concerns persist regarding whether these targets will be met and whether the allocated quotas will be effectively mined.

Projections indicate a surge in nickel ore demand in 2024, driven by anticipated growth in mixed hydroxide precipitate (MHP) output. This trend is expected to further strain nickel ore resources in Indonesia, raising concerns about the sustainability of current extraction levels.

The Indonesian Nickel Miners Association (APNI) has repeatedly warned about the depletion of nickel ore resources with high nickel content, emphasizing the need for sustainable practices to ensure the longevity of the industry. However, the industry continues to grapple with challenges related to ore consumption rates and resource management.
