Report summary

The copper market service short term outlook (STO) is published monthly and provides a forecast of copper supply and demand fundamentals over the next two years. Copper rallied to its highest level in 20 months in mid February amid stoppages at the industry's two largest mine producers Escondida and PT Freeport Indonesia (PTFI). Between them the two mines represent around 10% of global copper in concentrate production capability for 2017. Short term price direction will not only be influenced but the length of the current outages but also by the pace at which signs of a pick up in demand emerge as we approach the seasonally stronger second quarter.
