Indium is a post-transition metallic element that is rare in Earth's crust. It has no obvious role in biological processes, but is of considerable industrial importance. The main source of indium is zinc concentrates (indium containing 0.0001 ~ 0.1%), recovered as a byproduct in the smelting of zinc ore and tin smelting process. Indium is mainly used for production of indium tin oxide (ITO), alloys and solders. Another important use of indium was for III-V semiconductor materials for light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and laser diodes. Some manufactures also extract indium from the waste electronic materials (ITO).Scope of the Report:
Other major indium production regions are Korea, Canada and Belgium. Korea Zinc Co. Ltd. was a significant producer of primary and secondary indium at its Onsan zinc refinery. Primary feedstock was zinc concentrates from Bolivia, and secondary feedstock was from ITO producers. Umicore is the largest refinery of indium in Belgium.
The worldwide market for Indium is expected to grow at a CAGR of roughly 4.2% over the next five years, will reach 540 million US$ in 2026, from 420 million US$ in 2020, according to a new Our study.
