LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global tin market 2015-2019 report. This research report also lists numerous prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

The major proportion of tin in the world is produced by small-scale companies and artisanal miners. There is harmony among these producers and the major companies that lend a helping hand to these small groups of producers for their formalization and development.

China, Indonesia, and other South-east Asian countries are home to most of the large producers of tin. The market is dominated by players that have a strong foothold in these regions and also have an organized export network. The major players dominating the market are Malaysia Smelting Corp., Minsur, PT Timah, Thaisarco, and Yunnan Tin China. Yunnan Tin is the largest producer of tin in the global market and has a wide portfolio of products ranging from tin powders to granules.

“A major cause of concern is the ability of these companies to meet the global demand due to the shutting down of mines in various pockets of the world. Political conflicts, depleting deposits, and other factors such as environmental regulations and trade limitations have become barriers preventing the producers of tin from meeting the global demand to a large extent,” says Chandrakumar Badala Jaganathan, lead research analyst at Technavio for metals and minerals.
