The pewter price

In addition to the other well-known metals, pewter is an absolutely unique material that comes onto the market in a multitude of products. Tin has been used for many thousands of years and played a historically formative role at the beginning of its processing, especially in the production of vessels.

Tin is traded on the commodity exchange. It is therefore subject to regular price fluctuations, which depend on the world market and are sometimes more or less severe.

The fluctuating raw material price can only be included to a limited extent in the final pricing, as production is planned for the longer term. However, it can happen that the price changes so much within a year or at shorter intervals that price adjustments become necessary during the year.
