Despite industry revenue bouncing back strongly following after the recession, persisting debit issues in developed economies and decelerating growth in emerging markets have caused copper prices to deteriorate, limiting revenue growth. In the five years to 2019, the price of copper is expected to continue fluctuating. However, operators will be better equipped to handle the volatility. Operations will also be larger and more globalized, contributing to industry growth.
Companies in this industry purchase refined and scrap copper to produce a range of fabricated products, such as wire, sheet, tubes, pipes, strips and bars, through rolling, drawing and extruding processes. This industry does not include companies that primarily smelt and refine copper or manufacture wire products from purchased wire.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
