AntimonyPre-order

Global Industry, Markets & Outlook 2018

Antimony is mostly consumed in flame retardants and lead-acid batteries. Together these end-uses accounted for 84% of antimony demand in 2017. Consumption trends in these two critical applications for antimony thus shape overall demand dynamics. In both cases, a similar situation prevails: while overall demand (for flame retardants and lead-acid…
