Europe's largest economy, Germany, recently activated an emergency plan to manage gas supplies that the natural gas could be rationed if supplies are disrupted or disrupted by a stand-off over Russian demands to pay for fuel in rubles.
German Vice-Chancellor, minister of economy and climate protection, said Germany's gas supplies were secure for now, but he urged consumers and businesses to reduce consumption, saying "every kilowatt of electricity counts."
Germany's gas network regulator can ration gas if supplies run short. Plants would be the first to be affected. Special treatment will be provided to private families, hospitals, and other important institutions.
Half of Germany's 41.5 million households use natural gas for heating, and industry consumption accounts for a third of the country's 100 billion cubic meters of gas demand in 2021.
The price of many energy and commodities like the Nitinol could be affected.
What is Nitinol?
Nitinol is a shape memory alloy, which is a special alloy that can automatically restore its own plastic deformation to the original shape at a certain temperature, and has good plasticity. In addition to its unique shape memory function, memory alloys also have excellent characteristics such as wear resistance, corrosion resistance, high damping and superelasticity.
Nickel-titanium alloy has a strong "memory", it can accurately restore its original shape with the change of temperature, use it to fill teeth, and even the frog holes that you have twisted around can be inlaid very tightly; use it to When connecting the pipes, it will be like the tight hoop on Sun Wukong's head, which can shrink automatically and is very firm.
Uses of Nitinol
The pipe joint device made of nickel-titanium alloy can automatically shrink when heated, so the pipe joint can connect the catheter very firmly. This kind of pipe joint is used in the system of naval ships and some chemical devices. Many countries use shape memory alloys to make self-fastening rivets to fasten the connection of some special parts such as aircraft and spacecraft. The United States also uses shape memory alloys to develop an antenna that opens automatically in a spacecraft. This antenna can be automatically folded and put into the spacecraft. As the flight altitude rises, the temperature rises under the sunlight, and the folded antenna will automatically open again.
Nitinol can also be used for the early alignment and leveling of patients' dentition. Due to the superelasticity and shape memory properties of the Nitinol archwire and the lower stress-strain curve, the Nitinol archwire is currently routinely included in the clinical practice. The arch wire of the orthodontic system.
Nickel-titanium push springs and tension springs are springs for orthodontics. They are super-elastic with nickel-titanium, and are suitable for orthodontic treatment to open up gaps between teeth and pull teeth in different directions.

Due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict and the covid-19 pandemic, how will the international situation develop is highly uncertain. It is too difficult to assess its economic impact properly. However, we could see energy prices and commodity prices keep rising and supply chains are disrupted. Therefore, Nitinol prices are expected to rise in the future.
