In 2011, the world’s total resources of copper stood at around 690 million tones. Chile, Peru and Australia possessed the most substantial reserves in the same year. As of 2011, the global copper production registered a 1.7% increase and reached 18 million tonnes; it exceeded the demand for almost 70,000 tonnes, whilst in 2010, the lack of copper was estimated at 175,000 tonnes. Chile was the top copper manufacturer, calling for just over 29% (more than 5.2 million tonnes) of the overall supply volume. Ames Goldsmith Corporation, Belmont Metals, SCM Metal Products, Aura Minerals, Azure Minerals Limited, Southern Perú Copper Corporation, Codelco and Antofagasta are among the dominant players in the world copper market.
The global copper market is poised to follow a stable upward trend in the years ahead. The world copper production will likely surpass the 23 million tonnes mark in 2016. The considerable increase in the telecommunications and automobile sectors are predicted to boost the growth in demand for copper in the upcoming years.
