Home>Metal Events>14th In Bi Ge Ga Forum
In 2021, the non-ferrous industries suffered abrupt changes from COVID-19, power restriction, Carbon Emission Peak policy, etc. The prices of base metal generally rise while those of non-ferrous metal vary. The prices of indium, supported by capital, started to move up strongly since August but the demand remained weak; The bismuth market stayed calm and the prices, which hovered at the cost line, requested further support to break through RMB50,000/t (USD7,815/t); The tight supply of raw material pushed the germanium prices to rise continuously and the demand from fiber optic industry would further increase in 2022; Gallium market experienced a balanced supply and demand on the whole in 2021. With the tightening supply and increasing demand from semiconductor industry, will the newly expanded production capacity meet insiders’ expectations? How will the supply and demand change in non-ferrous industries in 2022? New opportunities and challenges stand close at hand.
With the 1st forum hosted by Asian Metal in 2008, the annual Indium&Bismuth&Germanium&Gallium Forum has been witnessing active participation of around 150 countries from all over the world. Recognized by all insiders as the “No. 1 forum in indium, bismuth, germanium, and gallium industries”, the forum has been successfully held for 13 years in Changsha, Nanjing, Kunming, Xiamen, Sanya, Zhuhai, Hangzhou, etc. The past honor is history, new glory lies in front of us. Let us welcome the coming 14th gathering to jointly write a new chapter and start a new journey.
The 14th Indium&Bismuth&Germanium&Gallium Forum will be held in Qingdao, Shandong on August 18-19, 2022. The forum will provide a face-to-face opportunity for market participants to meet new clients, maintain regular clients, discuss and share market situation, and listen to brilliant analysis and insightful views from insiders on market focus and hot topics, in order to inspire wisdom and seize opportunities.
