China is currently the leading mercury producer, accounting for around 75% of the world output. In 2013, Kyrgyzstan was the world’s second largest mercury manufacturer, its share of the world material production totaled 13.8%. The county was followed by Chile and Russia, each accounting for 2.8% of the world mercury output.

Most of the global mercury reserves are concentrated in China, Kyrgyzstan, Mexico, Russia, Slovenia, Ukraine and Peru. The overall resources are estimated at about 600,000 tonnes. The current deposits are enough to satisfy the mercury demand in the future, given the decreased consumption of the material.

The USA is among the largest mercury exporting countries, with Indonesia, Nigeria and Peru being the key destinations.

The output volumes of mercury have recently declined as the result of the decreasing demand from consumers. The slowdown of the mine production has been observed since 2010.

About half of the world mercury output is utilized for the vinyl chloride monomer manufacturing, while the other end-use sectors account for the other half of the demand.
