Project delays and unexpected production halts have maintained a five-year copper supply deficit of between 300,000 and 400,000 tones a year, or about 3 percent of the world's production, helping prices hit an all-time high early in 2011.

The supply distraction due to strike in mines along with positive economic data can add to the support for prices.
