Vareha-Walsh’s presentation will talk about perceptions of indium metal availability and pricing as a critical metal for the indium-tin oxide (ITO) market. While indium is often thought of as limited in supply and subject to volatile pricing, her presentation will discuss indium’s availability due to its natural abundance, as well as the impact of indium recycling efforts on supply and pricing. She will also provide an overview of indium supply and demand drivers.
