04 Jul 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – Globally, prices for copper reached the bottom in January 2016. However, they are expected to stabilise later this year since supply glut will be eroded by production cuts carried out by market players.

Average copper prices are forecast to be around USD 4,900 per tonne in 2016 and may become higher in the upcoming years.

Global output will be slightly over 23 million tonnes in 2016, and it may hit the 25.3 million mark by 2020, growing by 2% on average.

Copper prices are expected to rise to USD 5,500 per tonne by 2020 in the wake of market tightening.

In China, production of refined copper is set to grow at a -1% CAGR in 2016. Local production is likely to be slightly under 8 million tonnes in the same year, and it may reach 9 million tonnes by 2020.
