The Chinese government has announced that it will impose export controls on gallium and germanium compounds - key raw materials in the manufacturing of circuit boards and solar panels among other things. This statement comes in response to protectionist actions taken in the semiconductor space by the US, Europe and Japan in recent months. Semiconductors are now becoming a battleground in the technology and raw materials war and their end-use applications are far reaching. These key raw materials are already identified on most countries’ critical and strategic minerals lists.
