The increasing demand for copper in APAC and other developing countries will fuel the demand for copper sulfate during the forecast period.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on metals and minerals, “At present, countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and India are the major copper sulfate consuming countries and account for a 61% share of the global copper market in terms of consumption. In 2017, Chile, Australia, and Peru consisted of rich copper reserves and accounted for 21.52%, 11.14%, and 10.25% of the total copper reserves, respectively.
