Global Copper Mining to 2024 – Updated with Impact of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on global copper production, with a fall of 2.6% in 2020. The temporary closure of mines and lockdown measures across the major producing countries have been the major reason for the lower global copper production in 2020. Production in Chile and Peru is estimated to have fallen by 0.7% and 13% respectively. In 2020, the global copper demand and supply gap, which has been in deficit since 2015, narrowed to 52kt, due to lower supply from the major producing nations. China is the world’s largest importer of copper, accounting for more than half of the global total. The future-outlook for copper trade is a little uncertain, due to the ongoing trade tension between China and Australia, but this will benefit the other copper exporting countries, given growing Chinese demand.
