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

Copper, Zinc & Lead Refining in Canada

Over the five years to 2018, Copper, Zinc and Lead Refining industry revenue is forecast to rise, driven primarily by rising nonferrous metal prices during the latter half of the five-year period. Over the five years to 2023, revenue is projected to fall modestly. While the industry will benefit from improving manufacturing and construction markets worldwide, However, an appreciating dollar will constrain potential export growth, as will increased global smelting and refining activity in general, making markets increasingly competitive. Further, weakening prices of gold and zinc alongside fairly stable copper prices will put downward pressure on industry prices.

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.
