Visualizing global trade flows of copper. An examination of copper contained in international trade flows in 2014
This Working Paper presents a brief but comprehensive graphical overview of copper contained in international trade, from copper concentrates through to finished products. Extensive data checks and a simple consolidation method were performed before visualizing the data on world maps. While data were collected and analyzed for the period 1992-2014, the year 2014 is used here to follow the global journey of copper from mine to final users.
