INDUSTRY STRUCTURE & DEVELOPMENT

The size of Indian copper industry (consumption of refined copper per annum) is around half a million tones which constitutes only 3 percent of the world copper market. Sterlite Industries, Hindalco Industries and Hindustan Copper are major producers of refined copper in India. India has emerged as net exporter of copper from the status of net importer on account of rise in production. In fact, copper as a metal came in use of man much earlier than iron. Copper has been used for making utensils and coins since long. Being a good conductor of electricity and ductile, it is extensively used in a vast variety of electrical machinery, wires and cables. It is also an important metal used by automobile and defense industries. Further, it is alloyed with iron and nickel to make stainless steel, with nickel to make ‘morel metal and with aluminium to make ‘duralumin. When alloyed with zinc it is known as ‘brass and with tin ‘bronze. Copper ore is found in ancient as well as in younger rock formations and occurs as veins, as dissemination and as bedded deposits. Mining for copper is a costly and a tedious affair because most of the copper ores contain a small percentage of the metal. Against the international average of metal content (in the ore) of 2.5 per cent, Indian ore grade averages less than one per cent.
