Abstract
The growth of copper supply capacity cannot keep up with the consumption growth in China, so the copper in China is still in a short supply in the future. The supply capacity of copper mine reduced from 30.7% in 2000 to 17.4% in 2013. Due to the late massive use of copper in China, the social recycling of secondary resources will still be in rapid growth. In 2013, the consumption of the scrape copper in China was 4.0472 million tons, representing 35% of the copper consumption. China's imports of refined copper increased from 1.6% in 1994 to 37.6% of global imports in 2010. China's imports of copper concentrate rose from 5.9% in 1995 to 37.95% in 2013 of global imports. In 2013, China's imports of scrape copper arrived at 2.0653 million tons (metal amount), accounting for 18% of China total copper consumption. Among the top 20 copper mines around the world, there are eight copper mines in Chile.
