Der Kupfermarkt des 16. Jahrhunderts war von einer oligopolistischen Struktur geprägt. Aufgrund seiner Kapitalintensität war der Bergbau vorwiegend über die Vertragsvergabe an finanzstarke Akteure organisiert. Während die Entwicklung von Angebot und Nachfrage den Preis des Rohstoffs um die Jahrhundertwende zusätzlich steigen liess, konkurrierten zahlreiche Unternehmer um die Kupferkontrakte. Ausgehend von den als Gewerken tätigen Wolkenstein-Rodenegg zeigt der Beitrag, wie verschiedene Kaufleute in diesem Geschäftsfeld agierten. (The copper trade in the sixteenth century was characterized by oligopolistic structures. Since copper mining was a capital-intensive business, mining contracts were chiefly awarded to affluent investors. At the turn of the sixteenth century, changes in supply and demand led to an increase in prices for this raw material. As a result, intense competition arose between rival businesses vying for copper contracts. Based on the activities of the Wolkenstein- Rodeneggs, a noble family involved in copper mining, the article examines the strategies by which merchants sought to succeed in the copper trade. )
