Abstract
This Bureau of Mines paper projects that growth in demand for cadmium in the United States based on 1983 apparent consumption data will be 1.7 pct per year. The forecast expansion of the nickel- cadmium battery industry is expected to be the driving market force in the growth of domestic cadmium demand. Barring any national defense stockpile disposals, the United States is expected to become increasingly dependent on imported cadmium material to meet this projected growth in demand. However, the world estimated reserves of cadmium and the announced expansion in zinc processing capacities in those countries that export to the United States should be adequate to meet the projected domestic demand.
