Abstract
From 2000 to 2010, the consumption of refined copper in China has increased at a speed of 0.49 million tons per year on average, and its cumulative consumption accounted for 65% of the total consumption since the founding of PRC. In 2013, the copper consumption in China reached 11.81 million tons. The consumption in different sectors are on the rise in terms of absolute amount. Among the consumption sectors, the copper consumption in electricity sector grew at the fastest speed. In terms of per capita consumption, the consumption of refined copper in China was 7.1 kilograms in 2013, and China still has some room for growth. The copper consumption structure in both developing countries and developed countries showed obvious different characteristics at different stages.
