Roskill’s Jon Barnes talks Proactive London through his views on where copper demand and supply is heading through 2019 and beyond.
Barnes says “2018 proved a good year for demand with growth of around 3%, which when compared to average yearly growth of nearly 2–2.5%, it was a good outcome”.
“We saw increases in demand from Europe, Japan, particular south east Asia and to a more limited extent the US and some stellar growth rates across the ASEAN countries—especially Vietnam”.
“It would be great if we could see similar demand this year … it probably won’t be quite as good but still expecting something like 2.5% growth”.
Join Roskill in Santiago, Chile on 11th April 2019 to discuss the latest outlook for Molybdenum and the impact of Copper on EV, lithium‑ion and raw material markets.
