Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Revenue in the Copper Production industry is expected to decline at a compound annual rate of 13.4% over the five years through 2016-17 to £525.4 million. The performance of the industry is closely tied to the world price of copper, which fell precipitously over the period owing to stagnant growth in the construction sectors of the world's most developed countries. Slowing growth in China has also contributed to the recent decline in prices. In 2014, the price of copper slid 6.4%, building on the 7.9% decline that occurred in 2013. Prices fell a further 19.7% over 2015, a result of low demand from emerging markets. IBISWorld expects dampened demand and rising supply to push prices down another 15.1% in 2016. In 2016-17, industry revenue is forecast to shrink by 7.1%... purchase to read more
