The global tin market recorded a surplus of 2,200 metric tons in January to June, the World Bureau of Metal Statistics said Wednesday.

LONDON, Aug. 18 (Dow Jones) -- The global tin market recorded a surplus of 2,200 metric tons in January to June, the World Bureau of Metal Statistics said Wednesday.

It didn't provide a comparable figure for the previous year.

Global reported production of refined metal, excluding reprocessed London Metal Exchange metal, was up by 10,100 tons, compared with January-June 2010.

Global tin demand during January-June was 1,000 tons, which was 0.6% above the comparable period of 2010. U.S. apparent consumption in January-June 2011 was 13% below the figure for 2010, due to "exceptionally low" imports of metal in April 2011, the WBMS said.

Japanese consumption was 15,200 tons, 12% below the comparable total for 2010.

In June, refined production was 30,600 tons and demand was 30,500 tons.
