Chinese ban on copper scrap imports: the impact has come earlier

Report summary

The ban on the import of category 7 copper scrap will come into effect by the end of 2018. In this insight, we demonstrate qualitative analysis on how the changes on import quotas will bring forward the impact on China's scrap supply to 2018, and how the scrap industry is reacting to the change. We also present quantitative analysis of the impact on China's copper scrap imports, total scrap supply, and scrap consumption at smelters, refineries and semi fabricators.
