The performance of the industry is largely in line with downstream demand for copper products. Industry revenue grew sharply by 40.5% in 2010, owing to the economic recovery and rebounding copper price. Strong performance continued in 2011, but slowed down slightly in 2012 and 2013 due to the milder performance of the overall economy. Since 2014, with weak market demand and declining copper prices, industry revenue has been decreasing. In 2016, industry revenue grew0.4% to $11.8billion.

Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

The top four players are expected to jointly account for less than 26.0% of industry revenue in 2017, indicating that this industry is subject to a low level of industry concentration.

Due to the fragmented distribution of mineral resources in China, it is difficult for companies to enlarge their market shares significantly. However, the higher mineral resource tax implemented in 2007 is forcing many small players to exit this industry or be acquired by larger companies in future years. This is expected to contribute to slightly higher industry concentration levels in the future.
