Key Market Trends

Soldering to be the Fastest-growing Application

– Tin is an important component in solders, as it melts and adheres to many common base metals at temperatures considerably below their melting points.
– Tin is alloyed with lead to produce solders with melting points lower than those of either tin or lead. Small amounts of different metals, notably antimony and silver, are added to tin-lead solders to increase their strength. These solders can be used for joints subjected to high or even subzero service temperatures.
– Innovations are being made for producing lead, cadmium, and antimony-free solders, in order to reduce their impact on human health and environment. Tin metals are now alloyed with many other base metals, adhering to the healthy environmental norms.
– The electronics and electrical industries use solders containing 40-70% tin, which provide strong and reliable joints under a variety of environmental conditions. At present, majority of the assemblers are using patented tin-copper-based solders.
– Asia-Pacific is currently the biggest market for tin-based solders, due to its rising demand in the electronics industry, along with growing production base.
– China is the biggest market for tin-based solders, in terms of production and consumption, where the immense and growing electronics and automotive industries are driving the demand. North America is the second-largest market, followed by Europe, for tin-based solders.

Asia-Pacific to Dominate the Market

The Asia-Pacific region was the largest market for tin. China is one of the largest producers and consumers of tin, globally. The automotive industry, one of the major contributors in the tin market, has grown considerably in the recent years. However, the Chinese automotive industry remains fragmented. This scenario is likely to have a positive impact on the tin demand from the Chinese automotive sector. In addition, the other major end-user industries for tin include electrical and electronics, heavy engineering, packaging, etc. China’s information and communication technology (ICT) sector has grown at a rapid pace in the past decade, owing to the support of the Chinese government and favorable digitization plans and policies.
