Global Copper Markets 2021-2025 - Upsurge in Consumption in Passenger Vehicles / Accelerating Copper Demand in China / New Copper Mine Projects in Pipeline

·4-min read

Dublin, July 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global Copper Market: Insights & Forecast with Potential Impact of COVID-19 (2021-2025)" report has been added to's offering

The global refined copper production is expected to reach 27.61 million tonnes in 2025, growing at a CAGR of 2.94%, for the time period 2021-2025.

Factors such as rising copper annual capacity in renewable energy, growing use of copper in smart home appliances, expansion of construction industry, increasing manufacturing of electrical equipment and growth in scrap copper supply would drive the growth of the industry.

However, the growth would be challenged by a decline in copper ore grades and challenges of more mineral waste from the copper industry. A few notable trends may include an upsurge in copper consumption in passenger vehicles, accelerating copper demand in China and new copper mine projects in the pipeline.

Copper is considered as an important element of economic growth worldwide. An increase in the price of copper is an indication that the global economy is recovering from the COVID-19 disruption. Copper is outperforming other base metals such as aluminium and zinc due to its high demand for industrial applications, which is contributing to the growth of the global copper market.

The fastest-growing regional market was Asia Oceania, due to the massive consumption of copper in construction and manufacturing industries, particularly in China. However, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has caused supply chain disruption, due to the closure of major mining sites as well as manufacturing facilities, which led to the decline in the global copper market in 2020.
