Copper is one of the essential metals required for developing industrial economy. Globally, the copper mining industry is one of the leading markets of the metal mining market. Most of the available copper is distributed over large areas, mixed with mineralized materials and rocks. Copper ores undergo through different separation stages and processes to produce pure copper. Major copper mining nations such as Chile and Peru are investing large amounts to boost mining productivity levels. The productivity levels of copper have to be increased in the next few years to meet the global demand arising majorly from industrial economies such as China. However, the increasing complexity and project cost associated with copper mining is one of the major factors preventing major companies from increasing their production levels. The market for copper mining is anticipated to increase at a considerable rate owing to increasing investments in construction projects which is a major consumer of copper industry.

Many nations in Asia Pacific are transforming into major industrial economies which would bolster the demand for copper in these nations. Countries such as Indonesia and Vietnam are also prospective nations for the growth of this market. Massive infrastructure developments planned in Asia, South America and Africa are also anticipated to drive investments in the copper mining industry. Copper is also utilized in the development of telecommunication and power infrastructure.
