Analyzing Base Metals in China

Analyzing Base Metals in China

China is the world's biggest consumer of copper, aluminum, and zinc, and has plans to restrict new aluminum projects in the next three years to consolidate base metal production and to revitalize this strategically important sector. It is expected that in the next five years, the demand for base metals will keep growing in China. In order to attract foreign investment, the Chinese government has made changes to mining regulations in recent years, which has increased the likelihood of new entrants in the Chinese mining industry.

Chinese demand for base metals will be driven by increased usage from the transport industry as more high-speed rail networks are built. The carriages of these high speed trains are now being made completely of aluminum. China's output of the light metal may reach 17.5 million tons, leaving the country with a surplus of 500,000 tons.

Major players in the industry are Jiangxi Copper, Western Mining Co. Ltd. and Zijin Mining Group Co, Ltd. Industry leader Jiangxi Copper Corporation has diversified its businesses into several commodity metals and integrated vertically forwards to provide chemical products such as arsenic trioxides and sulfuric acid.

The Chinese market is highly fragmented, although concentration within certain segments is higher. Mergers and acquisitions in this market could consolidate the market, reducing the number of players but increasing their size.
