Yesterday, data from the General Administration of Customs released tin-related import data, with refined tin imports of 1183 tons in April 2020, with Indonesia accounting for the largest proportion of imports, reaching 73.3%, and exports of 453 tons. Tin imports in April were 8817 gross tons, of which imports from Myanmar accounted for about 90.7 per cent of the total imports in that month. SMM believes that on the tin mining side, most of the tin ore imports still come from Myanmar, and the start-up of Myanmar's tin mining and mineral processing enterprises has not fully recovered. According to market participants, short-term tin ore imports may continue to maintain a relatively tight supply. In terms of refining tin, the recent profit space for refined tin imports is still open, and the acceptance of downstream enterprises is higher than that of last year, and it is expected that the import volume of short-term refined tin may continue to be relatively high.
