Home>Metal Events>16th In Bi Ge Ga Forum
OVERVIEW
Indium, bismuth, germanium, and gallium, as rare metals with unique advantages in China, continued playing an important role in 2023. Indium ingot prices rebounded strongly since the beginning of the year, and kept hovering at a high level under the support of expected growth in photovoltaic demand. The price of bismuth ingot also started to increase this year, and repeatedly broke the RMB60,000/t (USD3.79/lb) mark contrary to the sluggish trend. Since the export controls on germanium and gallium were implemented on August 1, 2023, the market attracted widespread attention as policy trends pull at the heartstrings of the upstream and downstream enterprises at home and abroad. At the beginning of 2024, with the spring flowers blooming, Asian Metal invites you to gather together in Ningbo to discuss on the market.
With the 1st forum hosted by Asian Metal in 2008, the annual In Bi Ge Ga 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 14 years in Changsha, Nanjing, Kunming, Xiamen, Sanya, Zhuhai, Hangzhou, Qingdao, etc. The past honor is history, new glory lies in front of us. Let us welcome the coming 16th gathering to jointly write a new chapter and start a new journey.
The 16th In Bi Ge Ga Forum would be held in Ningbo, China on March 28-29, 2024. 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.
