Market Description

Global germanium production was valued at 152000 metric tons for the year 2017, a decrease of 2% Y-o-Y primarily because of the production cut from China. In 2017, despite the cutbacks, China remained the leading global producer of germanium. However, China’s germanium production growth rate in the next several years may be negatively affected by the implementation of stricter environmental standards. Production of germanium tetrachloride for fiber optics increased in China in 2017 owing to an additional production line commissioned with one of the country’s top germanium producers. Fiber optics is the key end use industry for Germanium which constitute around 30% of the demand, followed by Infrared optics (20%), and Polymerization catalyst
