Asia To Continue Driving Global Tin Output Growth Over Medium Term

Global tin mine production will grow at a slower rate of 0.9% a year between 2019 and 2028, compared with a growth rate of 2.1% a year over 2009 to 2018, research firm Fitch Solution estimates.

The modest production growth rate will, however, be supported by rising tin prices, it adds.

Fitch expects production growth to remain at low levels owing to stringent environmental regulations, such as those implemented in Malaysia, and declining ore grades in major tin producing countries, including China.
