Copper Wire Rod & Drawn Wire: Asia & Middle East Market Study out to 2021


 This independent report uses first-hand field research and unique insight from established industry expert Jonathan Barnes.

Countries in Asia and the Middle East will have consumed 15.8Mt of refined copper in the last year, that is 70% of world demand. At least 75% of this tonnage will be used by the copper wire rod mills in these countries. With the demand for wire rod declining in the Americas these regions represent a major source of growth and are a huge driver for the market.

 This report looks into the factors affecting the market, where growth is expected and what is driving the industry in an era of rapid change, giving you insight and analysis into the future of the industry out to 2021.

Get clarity on the key issues:
  • How important is scrap as a raw materials feed in China and elsewhere in the region?
  • What has been the trend in rod and drawn wire premia, and how will these develop in the future?
  • What tariff barriers remain to trade in wire rod and drawn wire?
  • What impact will this future have on copper prices, and the regional cathode premia, and the requirement for new mine, smelter and refinery supply?
