Overview
Prices for base metals, such as lead and zinc, have witnessed sharp rises for many times since 2016, while those for indium, germanium and other minor metals still hover at low levels on the whole. After witnessing oversupply in 2015, the indium, germanium and gallium markets have seen a reduction in output in 2016 due to the supply-side reform with producers’ operation rates hitting a record low. However, these markets remain bleak in 2016. Will these markets remain sluggish in 2017 or be boosted by increased demand?
Asian Metal will hold the 10th World Indium & Germanium & Gallium Forum in Xiamen, Fujian on April 19-21, 2017. The forum will focus on the price trends of indium, germanium and gallium in 2017, supply and demand as well as hot topics, such as the influence of the export quota on indium price trend, the transfer of ITO production from Japan and South Korea to China, new demand for germanium, the localization process of germanium tetrachloride for fiber, and changes in demand for GaAs, Mo source and magnetic materials.
Asian Metal will sincerely invite participants in indium, germanium and gallium markets at home and abroad to discuss and make plans, as well as celebrating the 10th anniversary of World Indium & Germanium & Gallium Forum.
