ECI Annual Report 2011

2011 was a challenging year for the copper industry. Largely as a result of low activity levels in many national construction markets, the International Copper Study Group* expects EU27 refined copper usage to be slightly below the 2010 total of 3.33 million tonnes. Demand in the rest of Europe will increase by 35%, driven mainly by Russian tariffs which favoured the export of wire-rod over cathodes. Globally, refined demand will be close to 20 million tonnes, up 3.6% on 2010.

Globally, refined demand is expected to be around 20.7 million tonnes, up 4% on 2011.
