Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation’s Donna Vareha-Walsh, director, Metals Business Unit, shared insights into the global supply and demand for indium at the 2017 Global Minor Metals Forum on November 29 in Chengdu Qinhuang, China. 

Vareha-Walsh’s presentation included an overview of the indium metal market, including detailed information on the international indium supply pattern, and analysis of supply and demand trends. In addition, she also outlined the basis for recent price fluctuation. 

“While the price of indium fluctuates, this metal remains in abundant supply to meet current and future market demand globally,” Vareha-Walsh explained. “In addition, recycled indium yields remain high with a large percentage of the indium-tin oxide (ITO) volume being recycled annually.”
