Tin producers

Tin has replaced lead in a lot of soldering, and is now used in a variety of electronics products from televisions and tablets to smartphones. The world's largest tin miner is China, followed by Indonesia. As a result of China’s growing tin consumption and Jakarta’s commodity policy, the tin market is expected to see another year of demand exceeding supply. In 2019, the price of tin was relatively stable.

With the exception of ninth-ranked Metallo-Chimique International of Belgium, the 2017 list of the world’s leading tin producing companies was dominated by companies based in Asia and Latin America. Yunnan Tin took the first spot, with a production output of around 74,500 metric tons. The Chinese company is the world’s largest producer and exporter of tin. By-product metals refined by Yunnan Tin include base metals and precious metals such as lead, copper, zinc and platinum group metals. Metallo-Chimique International specializes in the recycling of scrap metals.
