Indium Corporation reports market is stable
Indium Corporation’s Donna Vareha-Walsh, Director, Metals Business Unit, shared insights into the global supply and demand for indium at the 10th World Indium & Germanium & Gallium Forum on April 20 in Xiamen, Fujian, China.
Vareha-Walsh’s presentation included detailed information on the international indium supply pattern, and analysis of supply and demand trends.
“For many years, the myth has been widely circulated that indium metal is in short supply. That is simply not true,” Vareha-Walsh stated. “We expect limited movement up and down over the next few years as demand grows and supply comes on line. At this time, supply is stable and remains in sync with demand.”
Vareha-Walsh is responsible for the sourcing and sales of critical raw materials such as indium, gallium, germanium, tin, and silver for Indium Corporation’s manufacturing operations, as well as the trading and reclaim business. She has more than 15 years of metals market experience, including Director of Global Procurement for a global premium alloy company and Director of Metallurgical Operations and Procurement for a global tungsten based business. Additional experience includes finance responsibilities as a Business Unit Controller, sales expertise as Director of Sales and a New Business Development Manager, and participation in the metals recycling and scrap/reclaim markets. Vareha-Walsh earned a bachelor’s degree in finance from Duquesne University and an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh.
