2. Market analysis
Recently, the spot copper continued to rebound, and the impact of the COVID-19 on Chile was mainly concentrated in the second quarter. Although the Peruvian mining industry will begin to resume operations, these major copper-producing countries still have difficulties in large-scale recovery of production capacity, and the consumer market is gradually recovering. The relocation of refined copper continued, and wire and cable construction started to maintain a high level. The peak season effect of infrastructure-driven consumption is obvious, and copper prices continue to rise.
Based on the above situation, SunSirs copper analysts believe that copper supply is affected, downstream demand recovery is good for copper prices, and more attention is paid to overseas resumption of work. It is expected that copper prices will remain volatile and strong.
