Tin Price OutlookDespite a recent upsurge in industrial metal prices, tin prices remained relatively stable in September and early October. On 6 October, tin traded at USD 20,660 per metric ton. The figure was 1.2% lower than on the same day in September and was down 2.6% on a year-to-date basis. On the other hand, it was 2.4% higher than on the same day last year. In spite of expectations of an upcoming shortage in the market in 2018 due to falling supply, tin prices have yet to rally in line with market expectations. This could be because there is no clear sign of a lack of supply since production in Indonesia, the largest producer, has been sustained. Furthermore, China’s growing market share, since its return as a net exporter, is also holding down prices.
