Indian Copper Scrap Prices Tumbled On Low Global Demand Concerns

Copper Scrap prices in India slipped from recent 3-week highs of Rs.594 (Copper Wire Scrap Price – Delhi) on lower global demand concerns, especially from the top scrap metals consumer, China.

Since October, Copper Scrap prices have been fluctuating to sudden highs and lows on multiple factors impacting the demand and supply chain, pushing Copper Scrap prices to trade at lower levels.

According to SMM data, the throughput of Copper Scrap in the East China Nonferrous Metals Market was about 28,500 MT, down 6.7% on a weekly basis. The decline in the throughput of Copper Scrap in China was largely expected because of the resurging pandemic, which is largely affecting Chinese economic activities and demand.

The import data foretells even more economic weakness in the World's second-largest economy, which will likely impact Copper Scrap demand in the coming months. As China implements strict covid lockdowns and zero-covid policy, shutting down factories and industrial hubs such as Shanghai and Wuhan brought the Chinese economy to a pause this year.

Meanwhile, due to a narrowing price differential between Copper Scrap and Copper Base Metal, Copper Scrap demand was higher. Similarly, the fluctuation in Copper prices at high levels caused the Copper scrap import-export market to be largely active last week.

Copper Base Metal in India fell 0.30% from the previous closing price and is now trading on the MCX futures at Rs.649.95/KG (Oct-31-22). Copper prices fell 2.1% from a three-week high of Rs.663.9/KG on October 27, 2022.

So, it is anticipated that because of weak Chinese demand, Copper Scrap prices will fall steeply this week because of the strict lockdown due to a sudden pandemic outbreak. Once China relaxes covid restrictions, traders will resume the import of Copper Scrap.

In other major economies, the supply of copper scrap has remained moderately high amid the economic downturn and global recession fears. On the other hand, the US economy remains stronger, and import activities also look better in times of higher interest rate hikes.

But, the available imports to China are limited, which may largely impact the Copper Scrap prices in the short term. Furthermore, the central banks' upcoming interest rate hike this week may put additional pressure on prices and impact demand for Copper Scrap in the short term.

Copper Cable Scrap Prices (Mumbai): Rs.645/KG
