A recent report published by Infinium Global Research on the tin market provides an in-depth analysis of segments and sub-segments in the global as well as a regional tin market. The study also highlights the impact of drivers, restraints, and macro indicators on the global and regional tin market over the short term as well as long term. The report is a comprehensive presentation of trends, forecast and dollar values of the global tin market. According to the report, the global tin market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 2.24% over the forecast period of 2018-2024.
Tin is a soft, malleable, ductile
and crystalline silvery-white metal. Being so soft, tin is rarely used as a
pure metal instead it is combined with other metals in order to make alloys
that possess tin's numerous beneficial properties. These include a low toxicity
level and a high resistance to corrosion. Tin is also both malleable and
ductile. Tin acts as a catalyst when oxygen is in solution and helps to
accelerate the chemical reaction.
The growing use of tin in the electronics industry in various products such as a computer, mobile, tablets,
and another consumer electronic device drives the demand of the tin market.
Soldering is one of the potential end-user applications in the electronics industry
and tin is an essential constituent in soldering. Tin and tin alloys such as
tin-copper, tin-silver, tin-lead, etc. are used extensively for solder
applications. Nowadays, lead-free solder mostly uses the tin as the base material.
Due to government regulations and growing environmental concerns, various
industries are opting for lead-free solder, thus promoting the growth of the
tin market. Electro-plating is another important application of tin. It is
primarily done for providing corrosion resistance to a wide range of products.
Tin is generally applied over a
preliminary coating of steel, copper, and aluminum due to its several
characteristics. They are malleable, durable, good tensile strength, non-toxic,
lightweight high solderability, electric resistors and dielectric ductile and
resistance to corrosion. Additionally, tin compounds and tin dioxide are widely
used in used electric resistors and dielectrics and tin monoxide that it is
used in the production of tin salts for electroplating and as chemical
reagents. However, the availability of substitutes may hamper the growth of the
tin market. Going further, the rising shift towards recycling to tin is
expected to create significant growth opportunities for the tin market.
Moreover, increasing awareness related to use of tin-aluminum alloy in
lithium-ion batteries to double the charging capacity. This, in turn, provides
immense growth opportunities for the tin market during the forecast period.
Geographically, Asia Pacific
holds the maximum market share in the global tin market and is expected to
remain dominant over the forecast period. The expansion of electronic industry
and automotive industry promotes the Asia Pacific tin market. Improved economic
conditions and high disposable incomes of the rising middle-income Asian
countries are contributing to the growth of the electronic and automotive
industry market, which in turn drives the tin market. Moreover, the presence of
a major tin producer in China and India increases the growth opportunity in this
region. In addition, the growing demand for steel owing to the substantial
growth in infrastructural development in the Asia-Pacific region favors the
growth of the tin market in this region. North America holds a significant
share in the tin market after the Asia Pacific owing to the high demand for
electronic devices and the favorable environmental regulations in this region.
