Indium industry has high raw materials barrier. Currently, Resource-rich countries of indium are China, Peru, Korea, Canada and Russia. Globally, zinc concentrates were the principal source of primary indium and resource-rich countries are the major producers of primary indium, such as China and Canada. Secondary feedstock was from ITO producers and Japan was a significant producer and recycler of indium.

China was the leading producer of refined indium, accounting for more than one-half of global primary production. According to our investigation and USGS, the production volume of indium in China is about 400 MT in 2017. Yunnan, Hunan, Guangxi are the major provinces of indium and China Germanium, Guangxi Debang, Zhuzhou Smelter Group, Huludao Zinc Industry are the tycoons of indium. In the recent years, there are two producers of secondary indium in China.

Japan was a significant producer and recycler of indium and also the largest consumption region of indium owning to the indium tin oxide. Dowa Metals and Mining Co. Ltd. had the capacity to produce about 70 MT/yr of primary indium and to recover up to 150 MT/yr of secondary indium at its zinc smelter and rare metals recycling facility in Akita. Japan was the leading consumer of indium, mostly for the production of ITO. Mitsui Mining & Smelting, JX Nippon Mining & Metals, Tosoh Corporation is the major manufacturers of ITO in Japan.
