On 10th September 2020 CRU's leading base metal experts held a thought-provoking panel discussion on the future competitiveness of copper.

The copper industry needs more material to meet future growth in demand. But the challenges of increasing copper production are manifold.

The concern is that if growth in supply does not keep pace with demand, rising prices will encourage the use of other materials in place of a more expensive copper.

In the 2020s and beyond, copper needs to remain competitive, or it will become a higher value but much smaller industry with significantly reduced capacity. This is the competitiveness challenge.
