Roskill’s view is that total copper consumption (defined as refined copper consumption plus direct use scrap) comfortably exceeded 30Mt in 2018, in its fourth successive year of growth. This meant the industry had already achieved the major global benchmark of producing and recycling enough metal for the consumption of 4.0kg of copper for every single person on the planet.
