Copper, Zinc & Lead Refining in Canada - Industry Market Research Report

Copper, Zinc & Lead Refining in Canada

Over the five years to 2017, industry revenue is forecast to decline, driven primarily by falling nonferrous metal prices during the latter half of the five-year period. The industry is highly globalized, with exports generating most revenue. Consequently, demand for industry products depends on conditions in the manufacturing and construction markets of major trading partners, such as the United States and Europe. Over the five years to 2022, revenue is projected to rebound modestly. The industry will experience challenges from continued weakness in the price of copper and the closures of two mines in Canada in 2013, which will continue to constrain zinc and lead output. However, rebounding manufacturing and construction activity worldwide will bolster exports, contributing to revenue growth.

Companies in this industry smelt or refine nonferrous metals other than aluminum. The refining process includes the use of electrolytic methods, as well as more traditional furnace-based procedures. Additionally, industry operators that refine gold typically do so on a fee-for-service basis.

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.
