CHINA remains the world's biggest market for platinum this year even as the global market for the precious metal has moved from surplus to deficit on fallen supplies and firm demand, an industry report said.

Demand remains steady, mainly driven by rising jewelry consumption in China, Johnson Matthey, a United Kingdom chemicals specialist, said yesterday in the interim outlook for the metal.
