ABOUT THE SECOND WORLD ANTIMONY FORUM: Since the financial crisis of 2008 the antimony market has seen a rather dramatic fluctuation in price and an inconsistent level of demand over the last few years. By the end of 2008 prices had dropped to a low of USD4,000/t in Europe, however within three years appreciated circa 300% where the market witnessed prices being quoted at USD16,000/t. This tremendous rise in price however was short lived, as taking the last twelve months into consideration one witnesses a market that has continued to see a weakening price and rather lack luster level of demand. There are a number of key drivers and constraints that the market faces in moving towards the eclipse of 2013 and into the New Year. There are scores of predictions and beliefs of where the market is heading and what will happen to the levels of demand and supply. Asian Metal will host the World Antimony Forum in April of 2014 to allow these key issues to be addressed and explored accordingly. The conference will be a prime opportunity to take stock of happenings in the first few months of the year and highlight key opportunities, prospects and restraints for the remainder of the year.
