London, UK (PRWEB) December 22, 2014
In 2013, the world antimony production totaled 163,000 tonnes, an upturn of 6.3% from 2012. China is the globe's leading antimony producer, holding 80% share of the world production volume. In 2013, the total antimony output in the country totaled 130,000 tonnes. Meantime, the limits on metalloid production accepted by the Chinese government led to the decline of antimony export volumes, which is likely to negatively influence the antimony market. The closures of mines and continuous reduction of antimony reserves are also expected to limit the market further growth. Despite the overall antimony production decrease, China will maintain its position as a major supplier in the next 4 years. Meantime, Russia, Bolivia and Tajikistan are also amid the biggest antimony manufacturers, accounting for 4%, 3.7% and 2.9% of the world antimony production, respectively.
In 2013, the global antimony deposits were estimated at over 1.83 million tonnes, with China, Russia and Bolivia holding the largest shares of total material reserves. China’s share of the global reserves amounted to 51.9% in 2013, while Russia and Bolivia accounted for 19.1% and 16.9%, respectively.
The world antimony demand showed stable YoY growth over the last years and reached 172,000 tonnes in 2013. The largest demand is expected to be observed in Asian region in the years ahead, with China being the main consumer. Moreover, the world antimony demand is forecast to rise in the upcoming years, primarily spurred by the growing demand from its key end-use sectors.
