SHANGHAI, Oct. 9 (SMM) – There is no turnaround in sight for copper prices as sluggish end user market will dampen demand for the red metal, www.qhrb.com.cn reported.

Major copper consumption industries are mostly troubled by high stocks, so there is still a long way to go in the destocking process. Unsold commercial buildings remained at an all-time high of 6.32 trillion units as of August 2015. There are still over 40 million units of air-conditioners piling up in China at present. China’s automobile capacity has hit 40 million units this year, but domestic sales are poor.
