The Lifecycle Growth Trend and Demand Prediction of China Copper Industry
With the rapid economic development in China, the domestic copper demand grows sustainedly and drives the continual expansion of China copper industry. The study is based on the industry lifecycle theory and supported by the lifecycle characteristics of non-ferrous metal industry of the current developed countries. Combined the experienced data of early developed industrial countries to our practical situation, the growth trend and development limitation of China copper industry lifecycle are analyzed by the growth curve model, which is significant for the accord development of China copper industry.
