ITRI’s thirteenth annual survey of tin users gathered data from tin users worldwide between June and August 2017, showing robust growth of 3.3% in 2016. 136 companies took part; accounting for some 46% of estimated global refined tin use.
ITRI also expects continued though more modest growth in 2017. ITRI analyst Tom Mulqueen commented: “Latest reports for the latter half of 2017 suggest tin usage in chemicals and tinplate in China has been stronger than the 1.3% indicated by our survey results. If this is sustained then it is possible we could see global refined tin consumption growth of around 2% in 2017”
