Market outlook of the tin market
Technavios market research analyst predicts the global tin market to grow at a moderate rate of around 2% during the forecast period. The increase in the lead acid battery usage is driving the growth of the market. Government regulations, especially in China, have forced the manufacturers to replace antimony and cadmium by tin to alter the grid alloy composition in lead acid batteries. The growth of the automotive industry is also contributing to the market growth of tin globally.
The depleting reserves globally is expected to deter the market growth during the forecast period. The average amount of tin present in the ores recovered from the major mining sites has been declining due to the depletion of richer deposits. Indonesia, China, and Peru, which have been the leading producers of tin, have been witnessing the reduction of tin deposits in the reserves.
