APPEARANCE AND CHARACTERISTICS

Indium is a silvery-white, easily deformable metal. As an alloying ingredient, it increases
hardness and corrosion resistance even at low concentrations. Indium wets glass and with equally good reflection properties, forms a more corrosion-resistant mirror surface than silver.

 

CONCENTRATION OF SUPPLY

Finding Indium in high concentration is extremely difficult.

Indium production is dependent on zinc mining.

Global demand now far outstrips both main production and capacity.

This supply-demand imbalance has propelled Indium prices nearly 67% higher from 2016-2018 and rising.

WHY BUY NOW

Future green technologies for clean energy (solar panels).

The age of the internet is upon us – cameras, televisions, watches, cell phones, desktop monitors and laptop computers.

One of the largest applications of Indium is Flat Panel Displays or Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs). This sector consumes over 70% of the world output of Indium. It’s used in the computer screen or mobile phone you’re seeing this on now.
