Global Semis Production and Demand
The data given for global semis production and demand covers for 107 countries. Data are grouped by semis product and shown by geographic region. Click the link below to access semis production and demand data for 2012-2020.
It should be noted that data up to 2019 for some geographies has been revised as a consequence of the IWCC receiving updated production data.
The Statistical Bulletin
The IWCC Statistical Bulletin contains national data on semis production, imports, exports and apparent demand which are available to our members on the website.
Short-term forecasts for semis production and demand are available for most countries, subject to the IWCC’s Information Exchange Policy.
Global Copper Semis End-Use Reports
The annual End-Use Report provides the copper industry with detailed information on end-use demand by semis type. It is prepared in conjunction with the International Copper Association (ICA).
The Report contains global data subdivided into country and/or regional groupings for all semis types (copper and alloy) together with estimates for castings and powder shown by end-use demand applications.

Copper Supply & Demand Forecasts
Regular supply and demand forecasts for unwrought copper are prepared by the IWCC Joint Statistical Committee. Forecasts are assembled from all of the major copper producing and consuming countries throughout the world, and are available to the copper industry.
World Trade Database
The IWCC World Trade Database reports on refined copper and copper and copper-alloy semis trade from over 80 of the world’s major economies.
The report is based on Excel and is displayed as a Pivot Table. The parameters (Reporting Country, Partner Country, Flow, Product & Year) can be manipulated within the Pivot Table to show data in a variety of combinations.
The World Trade Database is available free of charge to IWCC Members and Copper Producers. For non-members, the database is available for purchase for £500. Please contact us for further information.
Economic data & metal prices
The IWCC provides members weekly updates of developments on the LME (London Metal Exchange) and monthly macro-economic data published by the OECD and EU.
IWCC Product Committee datasets
Each of the IWCC’s 5 Product Committees have their own series of datasets based on the needs of their market.
