SMM: China produced 7,506 t of refined tin in February 2020, down 30.4% m-o-m. The decline can be attributed to smelter suspensions as a consequence of the COVID-19 outbreak during the month. Most domestic smelters restarted operations in March with some running partial capacity on tightening raw material supply. SMM forecast domestic refined tin output to rebound to January’s level of approximately 10.5 kt.
