About This Report


Copper is one of the most versatile and useful metals in the world. It has excellent heat and electrical conducting properties and is widely used in applications such as electrical wiring in homes or in electronic devices. Computers and other digital devices require heat sinks to prevent overheating. These heat sinks commonly feature copper as a heat conductor to disperse heat into the surrounding air.

Australia is one of the world's major copper mining countries, although its output lags behind that of Chile, Peru, the United States and China. Chile alone represents about one-third of global copper mine output.

Firms in this industry mine copper ore and carry out copper ore beneficiation processes. These basic processes convert the copper ore into copper concentrate, which is then smelted and refined into copper products and copper cathode by downstream processors.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
