Over the five years through 2014, revenue for the Copper Smelting industry in China has been growing at an annualized rate of 23.6% to $143.9 billion. China is the world's largest consumer of copper, which has led to a widening trade gap in recent years. In 2014, 18.2% of domestic demand will be satisfied by imports; while only 1.8% of total industry revenue will be generated by exports.
Domestic economic growth and rising consumption levels provide significant support to the development of this industry.
