Boron Statistics and Information

Statistics and information on the worldwide supply of, demand for, and flow of the mineral commodity boron

Boron is produced domestically only in the State of California.  Boron products sold on the market are produced from a surface mine, underground mines, and in situ and from brine.   The United States and Turkey are the world's largest producers of boron. Boron is priced and sold on the boron oxide basis, which varies by ore and compound and on the absence or presence of sodium and calcium.   Boron exports total about one-half of the domestic production.
