Looking back at 2014, the demand for tablets and ITO target materials across the global market grew steadily along with consumption for indium ingot steadily growing along with the consumption for indium ingot. However, the production levels of indium ingot in China far exceeded the increase in demand. The excess production capacity is a significant problem. With the impact of persistent investment market trading through 2014, however, supply within the spot market was still tight. After prices for indium ingot 99.99%min initially rose slightly in earlier 2014, they fluctuated little from these high levels for some time. Although Chinese indium ingot export tariffs were cut again in 2014, from 5% to 2%, but Chinese indium prices are higher than prices in other country, which caused limited export volume and increased import volume. By the end of 2014, the indium price plunge made most of the participants feel confused about the price trend and future market of indium ingot. In 2015, how will indium prices move, maintain its low level at the moment or recovering slightly?
In 2014 China's state reserve bureau continued to purchase germanium metal. Meanwhile consumption levels grew from downstream industries for the material causing global supply of germanium metal to remain slightly tight with firm prices at a high level throughout the year. With the Chinese government pushing ahead with the production of optical fiber, as well as the continued military investment in infrared, can these current market conditions help to promote germanium activity? As demand from the solar, infrared, optical fiber, and military sectors continues to put consumption pressure on germanium metal across the world, can the price for germanium continue to be stable at its elevated levels through 2015?
In the past seven international indium germanium forums held by Asian metal net in, the attendees made effective communication within the industry. We hope that in 2015, we can organize our resources and widespread influence of indium and germanium market at home and abroad, and build the platform again by holding the eighth international indium & germanium forum to offer an opportunity and deepen the communication between enterprises, guide direction of (the) indium and germanium market in 2015. To this end, we sincerely invite the people from all walks of life together May 7-8, 2015 in four spring-like Yunnan City, Kunming province.
