Copper

Chile accounts for over one third of world's copper production followed by China, Peru, United States, Australia, Indonesia, Zambia, Canada and Poland. Major exporters of copper ores and concentrates are Chile, Peru, Indonesia, Australia , Canada, Brazil, Kazakhstan, United States, Argentina and Mongolia. The biggest importers of copper are China, Japan, India, South Korea and Germany. Copper market participants use the COMEX Division of high-grade copper futures and options to mitigate price risk. Copper is the world's third most widely used metal, after iron and aluminum, and is primarily used in highly cyclical industries such as construction and industrial machinery manufacturing. Profitable extraction of the metal depends on cost-efficient high-volume mining techniques, and supply is sensitive to the political situation particularly in those countries where copper mining is a government-controlled enterprise.
