With China the world's largest minor metals producer, the Asian region is widely regarded as the focal point for the current industry. However, with minor metals prices showing impressive resilience towards the back end of 2011, against a global backdrop of economic uncertainty, what shape will the future industry take?
Antimony once again traded well above its five and ten year average and indium, germanium and gallium, despite some decline, were still close to their pre-GFC peaks. As we enter 2012 the minor metals industry is still faced with plenty of challenges but as China, Japan and Korea increase their footprints, and India is on the rise, Asia is still a key focus for the global minor metals industry.
The event provides a first class platform to bring senior professionals together. Minor metals producers and traders can expect to meet consumers from the important solar, electronics and steel alloying industries amongst others.
