  In 1996, the world's tin consumption was 233300 tons. The main consumption forms of tin are: tinplate, solder and fusible alloy, chemical products and other alloy forms. In the last ten years, the consumption field and consumption form of tin have changed greatly. The proportion of tin plate consumption in the total consumption has decreased obviously, accounting for 40% in 1978, 31% in 1988, and 25% in 1995. In the same period, the proportion of solder and chemical products consumption increased from 27% and 7% to 35% and 15% respectively.

    In 1996, the consumption of tin in China was about 24000 t. The consumption structure of tin in China is different from that in foreign countries. Solder is the industry that consumes the most tin, accounting for 41.4%, and tin alloy takes the second place, accounting for 26.5%, while the tin plating plate with the largest amount of tin consumed abroad is only 3.2% in our country, 5.1% in tin compound, 6.2% in tin plating, and 17.6% in other parts. Tin is the traditional export product of China, and China is one of the largest suppliers of tin in the world. 29900 tons of refined tin was exported in 1996. This is almost three times more than in 1990. Tin concentrate was not exported in 1996.
