World Indium & Germanium Forum 2011

May 9-11, 2011 Nanjing, China
Asian Metal and all market participants witnessed ups and downs in In-Bi-Ge industries over the past few years. By the end of 2013, germanium prices reached its’ highest peak for the past 10 years, bismuth prices continued rising, and the indium price also reached a two year high. Furthermore, the stockpiling activities witnessed from the China’s State Reserves (CSR) provided the germanium market with a stable price level. What were the leading causes that led to these changes in the market? Could prices of indium, germanium and bismuth continue to show an upward trend in 2014 and record new heights? How will the international markets react to the increasing prices of raw materials and what is the new developing trend for downstream industries in 2014?
After few years of development, the Asian Metal In-Ge Forum has become the key platform for discussions and cooperation within these industries, and also achieved great progress in product seminars, providing companies with insights. It has also provided room for cooperation amongst key players and become the preferred platform linking participants across the continents. In 2014, Asian Metal will put bismuth products into the forum to form an In-Bi-Ge Forum where producers, traders, consumers and related sources from the In-Bi-Ge industries all over the world will get together to discuss developing trends in these industries. As an advanced supplier of metal information around the globe, Asian Metal, together with companies in these industries, will establish a platform for participants from In-Bi-Ge industries and related industries around the globe to communicate with each other.
The 7th International In-Bi-Ge Forum will be held in Changsha, Hunan in May, 2014. Asian Metal invites you here to discuss and create a more productive and positive future of the In-Bi-Ge industries.
