LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - October 13, 2016) - Bismuth has several application fields. Firstly, it is usually mixed with other metals (e.g. iron) to make it useful. Other application fields comprise pigments, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and more.
China, Peru, Mexico and Bolivia are owners of the largest number of mines where bismuth is produced. China, Mexico and Russia are in the top three of the world's bismuth producers. They are unlikely to be dethroned in the near term.
A prominent bismuth consumer, the USA does not produce bismuth domestically. Last time this country produced this metal approximately 20 years ago in a refinery, which was closed in 1997. The domestic production is unlikely to start again in the near term. However, a small amount of bismuth is obtained through recycling.
Region-wise, APAC is the number one consumer globally, with China, Japan, South Korea and India recognised as the local leaders at a country level. The UK, Germany and Spain are the largest consumers in Europe.
The bismuth production grows on an annual basis. It is expected to grow at a higher rate than the demand in the years to come.
