According to the related information, at present, 50% of the tantalum reserves distributed in Australia, and this proportion in Asia, Africa, America and other regions is 21%, 14%, 8% and 7% respectively.

In 2012, the global supply of tantalum reached 1,410 tons, increased by 6.4% compared with last year; in recent five year, the global tantalum metal output has remained at 1,200 to 1,400 tons.

In recent years, China’s tantalum industry has developed rapidly, the total output increased constantly, and the high-end products account for nearly 60% of the total market share in the global market; China has occupied an extremely important position in the global tantalum-niobium industry. In 2012, China’s tantalum output reached 475 tons, of which, the output of Orient Tantalum Industry Co., Ltd. reached 290 tons with the proportion of about 62%.

In addition, China’s mechanization, automation and intelligent trend will also stimulate the long-term sustainable growth of tantalum consumption.
