The copper industry in Brazil grew by nearly 50% in 2011 and went on to account for almost $2 billion in revenues. Come 2016, the industry is expected to rise by a staggering 275% and have a value of up to $6.5 billion. The quality and availability of the raw materials is essential to the efficient running of the industry. Consequently, concerns about the future availability and cost of inputs in copper production could affect the industry dramatically, placing more power in the hands of suppliers.
Copper is widely used and has various applications. This means that industry players can rely on a relatively large number of customers overall, which reduces buyer power. Most buyers in the Brazilian copper industry are unlikely to integrate backwards into manufacturing because the capital outlay involved would be very high.
Mineracao Caraiba S.A., Paranapanema and Vale are some of the key players in the Brazilian copper industry. The copper industry is concentrated and is represented by a limited number of large, multinational players offering similar products and services within each segment. With predictions going in favor of the Brazilian copper industry, this could be the time when the industry could capitalize maximum on the resources and opportunities available.
