  • China Copper Market Survey Database
  • SMM’s monthly updated copper database dated 2007 covers copper smelting, copper wire rod, copper tube/pipe, copper plate/sheet, strip and foil and copper wire & cable producers, processors and end-users. SMM collects information of production, orders, inventories and market expectations from China’s mainstream companies of the five sectors, so as to understand changes in supply, consumption, inventories and market sentiments.  More>

  • Copper Wire Rod Survey
  • The copper wire rod producers surveyed by SMM cover over 50% of national total copper semis capacity, and 70% of large imported continuous copper rod equipment capacity. The copper rod processors with large market share are taken as long term tracking samples by SMM. Their monthly updated production and orders are recorded to reflect the most realistic copper consumption of China.

  • Copper Smelting Survey
  • SMM’s monthly survey includes large mainstream domestic copper smelters, almost covering all deliverable brands on the SHFE, whose output accounts for over 80% of China’s total production. In addition to operating rates, inventories and raw materials, SMM also tracks progress of their new and expanded smelting capacities as well as maintenance.
