Research on China Germanium Market, 2014-2018, focuses on the in-depth research on the market supply and demand, price trend, downstream demand, and business performance of key manufacturers as well as industry competition and industry chain. In addition, this report also analyzes the business performances of 7 key enterprises, including: Yunnan Lincang Xinyuan Germanium Industrial Co., Ltd, Yunnan Chihong Zn&Ge Co. Ltd, Nanjing Germanium Technology Co., Ltd, and Xilingol Tongli Ge Refine Co., Ltd etc.
As the typical scattered metal, Germanium is mainly hosted in varieties of metallic minerals and coal mines with the proved reserve of only 8,600 MMT (Metal Metric Ton) in global. In 2013, the global output of germanium was 151 t, up 8.6% over last year. As the largest supplier of germanium, the increase of germanium output in China has significant influence on the supply of germanium in world.
In 2013, the output of germanium was 89 t in China, up 8.54% over 2012. In which the output of Yunnan Lincang Xinyuan Germanium Industrial Co., Ltd was 62.7 t, accounting for 70.45% of total output in China. Because of the transfer of production line, Yunnan Chihong Zn&Ge Co. Ltd did not resume production until November 2013, and extracted about 2 t of germanium.
As an important rare metal, China has increased the strategic reserve of germanium, in 2013, China collected and stored germanium for 30t, which resulted into the shortage of supply and demand and decline of export. In 2013, the export volume of germanium was 25.82 t, of which, 16.19 t was exported to America, followed by Germany with export volume of 3.593 t.
In 2013, the high price of germanium was maintained continually, which brought about confidence for germanium manufacturers to enlarge scale.
In December 2013, Nanjing Germanium Technology Co., Ltd initiated monocrystalline germanium slices project with annual output of 400,000 pieces to produce energy-saving, environmental-friendlily and high-efficient solar cell substrates. After put into production, this project can produce 300,000 pieces of 4-inch monocrystalline germanium slices of and 100,000 pieces of 6-inch monocrystalline germanium slices.
In 2014, Yunnan Lincang Xinyuan Germanium Industrial Co., Ltd had completed the equipment installation and commissioning etc preliminary work in "Monocrystalline germanium and monocrystalline germanium slices industrialization project with annual output of 300,000 slices" and "Infrared germanium lens construction project", and has put into production officially, and so has the 30 t optical fiber germanium tetrachloride project.
