It is likely to remain the front runner in coming times as well. While the US base metals industry grew substantially, the, Canadian and Mexican industries declined with rates of -5% and -3.5% respectively, during the same period. Copper sales proved to be the most lucrative segment for the North American base metals industry in 2010.
The largest market for copper is building construction (pipes and wires), followed by electronics and electrical products, transportation, industrial machinery and consumer products. Because of the huge demand from construction, copper prices tend to fluctuate on economic indicators such as the US housing market. The market is composed of a fairly small number of large companies, but they tend to operate in several regions and have some diversification in their product portfolio; thereby minimizing competition.
