Copper, Nickel, Lead & Zinc Mining in the US
The Copper, Nickel, Lead and Zinc Mining industry is heavily reliant on the market prices of the metals it produces. These minerals are key inputs into many products, and therefore, demand is relatively strong. However, choppy global growth over the past five years to 2018, negatively affected the industry’s performance. The industry supplies important metals for infrastructure construction and other products, and the recyclability of copper ensures that there is a strong secondary market for the industry’s products. Though weakening demand from China constrained the industry’s performance, exports have grown. Over the five years to 2023, industry revenue is forecast to grow. Industry operators will continue to seek additional measures to reduce mine operation costs, and profitability is expected to remain volatile over the five years to 2023.

Operators in the industry mine copper, nickel, lead or zinc-bearing ore. They may also develop mine sites and convert the mined ore into concentrates for further processing.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
