NEW YORK, July 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tin, a part of the carbon family, shares chemical similarities with germanium and lead. It is highly malleable and ductile and is capable of being transformed into thin sheet. Tin is unaffected by oxygen and water at room temperatures. It does not corrode or rust easily; hence, tin can be used as a coating material to protect other metals. Expansion in the consumer electronics industry coupled with rising demand in the food packaging industry is expected to drive the tin market during the forecast period. Additionally, its potential application in the solar energy industry is anticipated to provide ample opportunities for market growth during the forecast period.
The production of tin is concentrated in emerging economies of Latin America and Asia Pacific. Currently, China, Indonesia, and Peru are the largest producers of tin in the world. Indonesia, one of the largest producers of tin, is tightening its rules for tin exports in order to crack down on environmental degradation and smuggling. Myanmar is also anticipated to emerge as a major supplier of tin in the world in the near future.
