Indian copper production volume 2012-2018

Volume of copper production in India from FY 2012 to FY 2018 (in thousand metric tons)

Indian copper production volume 2012-2018 Copper has been an important metal owing to its wide industrial applications. Being widely available and one of the first elements to be discovered, it is the third most-used metal in terms of world consumption. The production volume of copper in India was about 150 thousand metric tons during financial year 2018. The end-use consumption of the non-ferrous metal was dominated by the electrical industry, with a share of over 50 percent across the nation in 2017.
Demand means profit

The demand volume of copper across the region doubled from 2012 to 2016, leading to increased profits for the involved companies. The operating profit margin of the copper companies was around ten percent in 2016. Hindalco Industries limited, the flagship company of the Aditya Birla Group, had the largest smelter capacity of copper across the country in 2016. Not only copper, the company is one of Asia’s biggest primary aluminum producer as well.

Import means struggle

Despite the increased demand and growth of the sector in the country, native companies are having a tough time in keeping up with the cheap imports of refined copper from Japan and other countries. The free trade agreements can lead to the south Asian country’s own sector to become redundant if the import of duty-free copper continues. However, the industry has seen hope in the government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative and its attempt in balancing the scales.
