On Wednesday 6th October AMT hosted a free virtual tin market webinar. This was organised as a series of panels where a range of industry experts reflected on an unprecedented year for tin and debated the future prospects for the market. Video recordings of the two expert panel discussions and AMT’s tin market review presentation are available to view below.

Producer Panel – Are Tin Market Shortages Structural or Transitory?
In this panel session, we heard the perspective of leading figures involved in tin production. The focus of the session was the key question of whether the tin shortages experienced during the pandemic era were likely to recede. Alternatively, are there structural production issues that will continue to be felt in the medium to long term?

In this panel session, we heard the tin consumer perspective on the market. The panellists discussed how tin consumers have been impacted in the pandemic era and whether this was likely to result in any permanent shifts in the requirements and behaviour of tin buyers.
